Applying for social security disability benefits is an arduous, stressful and difficult process, and most individuals are not approved upon submitting their application the first time. Fortunately, hiring a disability lawyer severely increases the likeliness that you will be approved.
There are many benefits to hiring a social security disability lawyer to handle your disability case. First and foremost, your lawyer will present your case in a way that is most beneficial to you and persuasive to the Social Security Administration. With years of experience, your attorney will have a broad spectrum of knowledge and be able to determine what information is vital and most beneficial to your case.
Second, if you have been denied previously, your social security disability attorney will have the expertise to craft carefully thought out and convincing legal arguments to demonstrate why you deserve the benefits you’re applying for.
And third, your disability lawyer will not only handle all the paperwork for you, but he or she will keep the lines of communication open throughout the entire process so you know exactly where you stand. Although it often takes months, and sometimes even years, to be approved for SSI or SSDI, working with a social security disability attorney can oftentimes speed up the process.
