Why Do I Need An Attorney, And When Should I Hire One To File For Social Security Disability Benefits?
Social Security has a very strict definition of disability. It’s difficult to prove you are eligible. Everything in your application has to be done correctly. You need to provide proof that Social Security finds persuasive. An experienced Social Security Disability attorney understands Social Security’s complicated formulas. He or she knows the best way to present your case in the most favorable light so that you will be most likely to have Social Security approve your application.
There are two situations where an attorney will be helpful. One is when you are applying for benefits for the first time. The other is if your application has been denied and you want to file an appeal.
It is especially important to hire an attorney if you are filing an appeal. The attorney will know what to do to improve your initial application so that you have a better chance of winning your appeal. The attorney will make sure that you have all the necessary documents and medical records to provide a complete picture of your disability. Your chances of winning an appeal are much better when you hire experienced attorneys to help you.
Don’t worry if you don’t have enough money to pay for a lawyer. At Katz & Associates, we don’t charge you any legal fees unless you win your case. If you do win, we take our fees out of your benefit award.
