Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability

When you suffer from a severe injury or illness that prevents work for at least 12 months, Social Security Disability law states that you are entitled to collect Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) benefits. It sounds simple, but in reality, legitimate claimants are denied disability every day.

When a claim is denied, disability applicants may have already lost weeks or months of income, in addition to facing mounting medical expenses, unpaid bills and other economic hardships. The Social Security appeals process can be lengthy, time-consuming and frustrating. At my Raleigh, North Carolina, law firm, I understand your circumstances. I have worked in the Social Security area for more than 35 years. As a former government disability examiner for 13 years, it was my job to approve or deny claims. Now as a lawyer, I seek to help every valid Social Security Disability applicant in the Raleigh, North Carolina, area receive the benefits they are entitled to under the law.

How Can A Social Security Disability Lawyer Help?
A Social Security Disability lawyer can greatly increase your chances of receiving rightful benefits. As with any legal matter, your best option is to enlist the help of someone who knows that area of the law thoroughly. As a lawyer who exclusively represents Social Security claimants and someone with more than 35 years' experience in matters of Social Security Disability, I believe I can provide the legal service and expertise you will need.

Hearings And Appeals
It's important to realize that no lawyer can move your appeals claim through the system without going through all of the lengthy, necessary steps. The key to a successful appeal is what happens in the interim. The earlier you retain a lawyer, the more time we have to prepare your case. While waiting on Social Security to schedule your hearing, our office is hard at work investigating your claim, preparing necessary documentation, completing complicated forms, and advising you on the actions you should be taking to maximize your chances of receiving benefits.

Severe injuries and illnesses require ongoing medical attention. At our firm, we obtain all of your relevant medical records and work with your doctor to ensure that appropriate and timely responses are made to support your case. In addition, our office provides personal attention to every client. We keep in regular contact with you to inform you on our progress, as well as advise you on any steps you can be taking to strengthen your claim. When your hearing date arrives, you can feel confident that you have an experienced litigation attorney in your corner and that we have done all that we can to help you succeed.

How Much Does A Social Security Disability Lawyer Cost?
Your fee does not change whether you hire a lawyer sooner or later, because our office works on a contingency basis. This means that there is no legal fee to you unless we succeed with your claim. The fees we charge are an affordable percentage of the benefits you receive.
