Hiring A Lawyer In The Event Your Claim For Disability Benefits Is Denied

by | Sep 18, 2017 | Lawyers

If your claim for Social Security disability benefits is denied, and the majority of them are, you will be faced with the appeals process in the event you disagree with the initial ruling. The initial stage after receiving the notice of denial is to request that the initial claim be reconsidered.

Chances are your request for reconsideration will result in denial as well:

If your initial claim was denied, it stands to reason that your reconsideration request will fail as well. If you inadvertently left out important detail, perhaps a disability lawyer can help but there is absolutely no guarantee. Chances are that you will have to move on with the appeal, the second stage is a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. Long before you reach the hearing date, you should have hired disability lawyers in Tennessee.

Many studies have been made; the conclusions are very much alike; an applicant for Social Security disability benefits that has hired a qualified lawyer is far more likely to win the case than an applicant who opts to go it alone.

Get legal help sooner rather than later:

Disability lawyers in Tennessee work on contingency and they are limited by law as to how much they can charge. This being the case, it makes no sense to wait until it’s too late to hire disability lawyers in Tennessee. There are very strict rules that must be followed and deadlines that must be met. Always hire a disability lawyer as soon as you know you are going to request a hearing, this allows sufficient time to gather pertinent medical documents, opinions from your doctors and to prepare you for the day you sit in front of the ALJ as well as medical and occupational experts.

Disability lawyers in Tennessee can be the difference between winning your disability benefits appeal and loosing. For a no cost evaluation of your case you are invited to contact the Law Offices of Miller & Drozdowski, P.C.
