The majority of initial claims for Social Security disability benefits are denied. Based on statistics from the SSA, about three-quarters of all claims are rejected. Once claimants receive notification that their application has been denied, many turn to disability lawyers to help them win on appeal. There are reasons why hiring a skilled lawyer in Chicago is the right decision.
People that can’t work and earn a living due to a serious illness or other disability will often be reluctant to hire a lawyer. This is of no concern. Once you hire disability lawyers, you only have to pay the legal fee once they are successful in getting disability benefits for you. If your appeal fails, your lawyer is not paid.
The legal fee is capped by Social Security. Your disability lawyers can charge you no more than 25 percent of the past-due benefits you are awarded, up to a maximum of $6,000. In the majority of cases, your legal costs are paid directly to your lawyers from the past due monies you are owed. The balance goes to you.
Preparation and Presentation of Supporting Evidence
The SSA looks for and expects definitive medical evidence when reviewing disability claims. With demands such as this, coupled with a complex application procedure, it is easy to see how claimants can become confused as to what information they should provide. It is not unusual for a claimant to provide too much of what is not needed and too little of what is needed.
Disability lawyers know what the SSA expects. When you hire a skilled lawyer, they will carefully review the medical data you have and decide what is valid and what is not. Your lawyer will make sure that relevant information only is provided.
When you hire experienced disability lawyers, there is a far better chance that your claim for benefits will be approved. You are invited to discuss your claim with The Law Offices of Jeffrey A.
