If you are unable to work because of an accident, medical condition or disease, you could be entitled to monthly disability benefits from the federal government.

If a disease, condition or disability limits or prevents you from employment, you may be eligible to receive government assistance in the form of Social Security Disability benefits, also known as “SSDI ” or Title II benefits, provided you have an adequate work history.   If you do not have enough work "quarters" to qualify for SSDI benefits you may qualify for Supplemental Security Income benefits known as "SSI" or Title XVI benefits. SSI benefits are available to individuals who do not have enough work quarters and meet certain income and assets criteria.

In most cases you must be suffering from a condition that has or will prevent you from being employed for at least 12 months, or a condition that will result in your death. While that might sound clear cut, the truth is that the process of securing disability benefits is usually a very lengthy and tedious process.  Most SSD and SSI applicants are denied benefits when they first apply. You must then pursue several levels of appeals, but a denial at any one level or a past denial may not disqualify you from receiving benefits.

Attorney Byron Broun will take on your case and fight for your rights at any stage in the SSDI and SSI application process. In fact, Attorney Broun will assist you in filing an online application with Social Security at the beginning of the disability application process.  Unfortunately, he cannot provide that service to SSI applicants, Contact Byron Broun for a free initial consultation at 727-343-3434 or via e-mail at

With more than 20 years of experience handling Social Security Disability claims, Byron Broun is prepared to assist you with the type of competent and caring representation you deserve. Mr. Broun invites you to develop an actual relationship with your attorney instead of meeting your attorney for the first time on the day of your hearing.   There has been a proliferation of large law firms and advocacy companies entering into the practice of Social Security disability law over the past few years because of the number of claimants seeking disability benefits.  These firms do not possess the requisite experience necessary to furnish you with the representation you deserve.   They inundate the media with advertising designed to create a volume business and convince you that they are best suited to properly present your claim.  Do not be fooled!  Ask the attorney or representative how many claims they have handled and test their knowledge about your particular disability. Do not let slick advertising or a fancy pamphlet fool you into making the wrong decision when hiring someone to represent you in a matter as important to you as your disability claim. 

About Social Security Disability Claims

"Disability is something most people do not like to think about. But the chances that you will become disabled probably are greater than you realize. Studies show that a 20-year-old worker has a 3 in 10 chance of becoming disabled before reaching full retirement age."  Social Security Administration.

Mr. Broun has represented people with numerous debilitating conditions that could prevent someone from working. After handling many SSD and SSI cases over the years, Attorney Byron Broun is familiar with many of the problems which prevent individuals from working.  For example:

  • Neck problems
  • Back problems
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Obesity
  • Digestive problems
  • Headaches
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Seizures
  • Heart problems
  • Breathing problems
  • Mental illness
  • Fatigue
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cancer
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Panic attacks
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Joint swelling
  • Multiple sclerosis
If you suffer from any one of the above listed conditions or a combination of any of these medical problems, you may be entitled to either SSDI or SSI benefits provided you suffer from a condition that will prevent you from working for 12 months or more. You must be totally disabled to qualify for SSDI or SSI benefits.

The Social Security Administration considers you to be “disabled” and entitled to SSDI or SSI benefits if:

You cannot do work that you did before; The Social Security Administration decides that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and  your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.

What Are The Attorney Fees?

Attorney fees in SSDI and SSI cases are based on a percentage of any sum recovered, with a maximum fee amount established by the Social Security Administration. The Social Security Administration must approve any attorney fee requests.

If I agree to handle your case, I will work on a contingency fee basis, which means I will get paid for my services only if you recover money on your claim.

I will not charge you for the costs associated with the pursuit of your case unless we win.  However, if we win, I fully expect you to pay the costs from your initial lump sum payment.
