Our Disability Practice

Experienced, Effective and Compassionate

The attorneys of Burnett & Driskill are dedicated exclusively to representing people who have a disabling injury, illness or other condition. We help clients obtain the full amount of disability benefits they are entitled to receive from all applicable sources.

Please contact Burnett & Driskill to arrange a free initial consultation. We have extensive experience in the following areas of disability law:

Social Security Disability: We help disabled eligible individuals obtain benefits from Social Security Disability Insurance, which is sometimes called SSD or SSDI, and the Supplemental Security Income (SSI). We are successful in about 70 percent of the Social Security Disability cases we take. Learn more about the process, SSD benefits, the importance of seeking medical care, and why you should hire us at the initial stage of the process.

ERISA: If you are covered by a disability insurance policy through your employer, you should contact us before you file a claim. We will avoid the pitfalls — many of which applicants are unfamiliar with. If you filed a claim without first contacting us and your claim for benefits has been denied, contact Burnett & Driskill as soon as possible, regarding possible appeal rights.

Railroad disability: Our attorneys help disabled railroad workers obtain disability benefits from the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB).

Federal employee disability: If you are an employee of the United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and have become disabled, you can rely on Burnett & Driskill for experienced legal assistance.

State employee disability: State employee disability insurers can be reluctant to cover valid disability claims. Because our law firm is dedicated solely to disability law, we understand how to manage these cases and help disabled state workers obtain the benefits to which they are entitled.

Private disability insurance: Insurance companies that offer private disability coverage are happy to take your premiums. But will they be there for you when you need them the most? If they are not, we can help.
