If a physical or emotional disability prevents you from working, you may be eligible to receive disability benefits. But more than half of the people who apply for Social Security Disability benefits in the United States fail to get the benefits initially. In fact, in our vast experience, most folks get denied, at least twice, before their case can be heard by an Administrative Law Judge.
The appeal process can be a bit burdensome and, at times, complicated. Appealing these denials without assistance may delay the proper development of the case. In addition, it is common for errors to be made during the appeal process, resulting in the appeal to be rejected.
Being represented by an experienced lawyer in Social Security Disability matters may increase the likelihood of your claim being approved.
