Benefits of Hiring a Social Security Disability Lawyer
“Our lawyers are familiar with all avenues of the Social Security application process. They consider themselves advocates, fighting for a basic right of every American citizen who becomes disabled or needs additional income.”
-Attorney Mike Brandner
Why gamble with the future of your livelihood? While not required, a lawyer will assist you at your disability hearing. Statistics show that hiring qualified counsel will greatly improve your chances of winning your claim.
Social Security Claim Denied?
There are many setbacks and delays associated with initial disability claims. Not only does it take a long time to process initial claims, but a large majority of SSD claims are denied. These factors disabled individuals simply cannot afford. A knowledgeable Social Security Disability lawyer will make sure your claim is filed early, helping you avoid unnecessary hardships.
If your claim has been denied you need an experienced social security lawyer to help you through this difficult process. Successfully obtaining benefits, under Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), can be very challenging without assistance.
We cannot underscore the importance of paying attention to details. Even if eligible and meet the requirements for social security benefits, you may receive a rejection simply because you did not file properly. Another critical component is diligent research. This is especially applicable for rare or uncommon conditions.
Are you suffering from a serious illness or injury that is preventing you from working?
Most applicants do not realize that receiving medical treatment for the condition(s) that prevent you from working is an important way of proving your eligibility for benefits. You always want to obtain copies of your medical records. While this is not a guarantee that you will receive benefits, it serves a dual purpose:
- It prevents a disability examiner from making a decision on your claim based on insufficient records.
- It prevents unnecessary delays when the examiner is processing your paperwork.
From injuries to illnesses, our disability lawyers personalize the claims of all of our clients. We then conduct one-on-one meetings to carefully document and gather the evidence necessary to help you prepare an appropriate strategy.
