Social Security Disability Appeals
If you have an injury, physical or mental illness or a combination of medical problems that prevent you from working or make it hard to work, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits.
Has Your Social Security Claim Been Denied?
We help clients pursue Social Security disability after they have filed an initial application, and have been denied. A representative at our firm will handle every aspect of the process after the initial denial, including your appeal and the formal hearing.
Defending Your Disability Claim
The Social Security Administration considers a number of factors when assessing your claim. If you are unable to do the work you did in the past, they will evaluate your medical condition, your age, education, past work experience and skills you may have that could be used to do other work. If you cannot do other work, the Social Security Administration will determine that you are disabled. If you can do other work, you will not be found disabled and receive a denial letter.
Medical evidence from your doctors and hospitals, clinics or institutions where you have been treating/treated is used in making these determinations. Therefore, it is very important that you continue receiving ongoing medical treatment, as well as making sure that your medical provider is aware of your symptoms and limitations so that this can be documented in your records.
