Why Hire a Disability Attorney?

By Aujsha Willoughby, Attorney, PLF

Applying for Social Security disability benefits is a legal process that can become very complicated because of the significant amount of agency rules and regulations involved.  Therefore, receiving help from disability attorney can make the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful case.  Having a disability attorney who is familiar with the Social Security disability process can help you avoid common errors that could harm or delay your chances of getting approved.  When you have an attorney who is knowledgeable in Social Security disability law, the attorney will help you file an application at the appropriate time and recognize any exceptions that would allow you to get approved at the initial application.  A disability attorney will also be sure to present the strongest case possible during the application process, the hearing, and beyond if needed.  

You should expect your disability attorney to develop your claim based on your work history, age, physical and/or mental limitations, and how you reached the point of being unable to work full-time.  An attorney who has experience in the area of Social Security disability will understand what it takes to be approved for benefits. An attorney will guide you and give you advice throughout every step of the disability process. Although it’s possible to file for disability benefits on your own, it can be a very overwhelming and confusing process. A disability attorney will help alleviate the stress and allow you to stay in contact with them and continue to receive the medical treatment that you need.
