Are you thinking about appealing an issue with your Social Security Disability benefits? This situation can be extremely confusing for the average person to navigate, which is why we always recommend hiring an attorney. The right legal counsel can help you get the benefits you deserve for a couple of key reasons. To learn more about social security appeals, check out this video.
Here we explain why hiring an attorney can be crucial for assisting you with an appeal if your application has been denied at any stage of the process. One of the primary reasons we observe claimants facing denials at various stages of the process is due to their lack of recognition regarding the case’s most pivotal aspect – the medical evidence.
Dependence solely on Social Security Disability for the procurement, collection, and review of medical evidence is a misstep. This is where attorneys play a significant role. We take charge of obtaining and compiling the necessary medical evidence. Our responsibility includes timely submission and often summarizing it for presentation before an administrative law judge.
Another common pitfall is claimants providing the Social Security Administration with a list of medical treatment locations without seeing much action from them. On the other hand, potential clients who haven’t engaged our services yet approach us with incomplete submissions, assuming Social Security would know how to proceed. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. That’s why you need to have an attorney on your side.
The challenges of going solo are exceedingly high-risk, and studies indicate that engaging an attorney significantly enhances the chances of winning a Social Security disability case. Another crucial aspect to consider when opting for legal representation is the comprehensive assistance we provide in preparing and presenting your evidence and case during a hearing.
We ensure you’re well-prepared for court, equipped with expectations, potential questions, and suitable responses. If you or your loved one requires assistance with their Social Security Disability case, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at (847) 577-4476. We look forward to hearing from you.
