When and Why to Call a Social Security Lawyer

Post on behalf of Thomas J. Ueberschaer PA on Wednesday April 29, 2020

If you are considering filing for Social Security Disability or have filed a claim and been denied, you may be considering whether you should contact an attorney. With decades of experience assisting Floridians with Social Security Disability claims, our law firm can help answer some common questions you may have as you decide.

Why You Should Hire a Disability Attorney

Hiring a Social Security Disability Lawyer can significantly increase the likelihood that you will be approved for benefits. Some individuals may successfully file for benefits on their own but, on average, the likelihood of succeeding increases with the assistance of professional legal counsel.

An experienced disability lawyer will represent your claim in the form most favorable to you and likely to succeed. This will include determining when the alleged onset date occurred, structuring your claim to best satisfy the requirements of the Social Security Administration, and gathering relevant medical evidence, potentially including expert testimony, to prove your case.

If your claim has been denied or requires hearings and rehearings, your experienced Social Security lawyer can help. You can benefit from their training and experience as they are able to craft legal arguments and help you prepare for the questions a judge may ask.

When Should You Call a Disability Lawyer?

The earlier you call a disability attorney, the better. The moment you begin considering whether to file for disability, you should consider calling an attorney for a free consultation. The guidance of a skilled Social Security Lawyer can save you time and improve the likelihood of your approval.

If you have previously filed but been denied, you definitely should contact a Social Security Lawyer to assist with filing your appeal.
