In an ideal world, people work until they’re eligible to retire; then, they start receiving Social Security benefits. However, your life can change dramatically during your working years, and you could end up disabled. If this has happened to you, you owe it to yourself to call an experienced Social Security law firm. Here’s why.
In most cases, an experienced Chicago Social Security lawyer will work for a law firm that’s been in business 10, 20 or even 35 or more years. During this time, the company has learned how to approach and win disability cases. Your lawyer will also be certified in Social Security law through the state of Illinois.
It costs nothing to call a Social Security lawyer to determine whether you qualify for one of two types of disability: Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income. Your lawyer’s compensation is also based on winning your case. Otherwise, he gets nothing.
A Chicago Social Security Lawyer will also make various recommendations to support your disability case. He may, for example, suggest that you see a pulmonologist or lung specialist if you have chronic asthma. Your doctor can then fill out a form that supports your disability claim.
Advocate at Hearing
If your disability case gets to the hearing level, your Chicago Social Security lawyer will advise you on how to dress and act in court. For example, your lawyer will recommend that you make eye contact with the judge when responding to his questions. He’ll also argue your case before the judge, countering any recommendations the vocational expert makes about your ability to work certain jobs.
One of the best things about hiring a Social Security law firm is knowing your lawyer will work hard to get you monthly disability benefits. He’ll also help you get the back pay you deserve.
