Win a SSDI Hearing by Hiring a Disability Lawyer
Statistics have shown that the Social Security Administration (SSA) is more likely to approve someone who is represented by a disability lawyer.
Filing for Social Security Disability benefits can be a complicated process.
Most applicants don’t know how to fill out the necessary paperwork and submit the correct medical documentation. This is a primary reason why over 65% of disability claims are originally denied.
Social Security Disability attorneys know how to present your case in a way that makes your disability obvious and not a matter of conjecture, and can assist you in obtaining the necessary medical documentation from your doctor and the hospitals where you received treatment.
When Should I Call a Lawyer?
You should call a disability lawyer as soon as you consider filing for disability. The general rule is “the earlier, the better.” If you’re even considering filing for disability, you should call a disability attorney for a free consultation.
Lawyers are expensive, aren’t they?
You may acknowledge that a Social Security disability attorney can help your case, but hesitate due to worry over the cost. If your financial situation is such that you need to apply for disability benefits to make ends meet, how can you afford an attorney’s fees?
The good news is that you will not need to pay for an attorney upfront. Social Security disability attorneys are compensated by receiving up to 25% of your disability back payments, to a maximum of $6,000. The SSA takes the attorney’s percentage of the back payments and sends it directly to them, so you don’t have to worry about calculating.
