What Does a Disability Lawyer Do?

Has a disability made it difficult for you to work? Wondering if you need to hire a disability lawyer? You are in the right place if you need help with your Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) application or claim process.

Disability lawyers ultimately help you achieve the financial assistance you deserve for your disability. They know the right medical evidence you need to provide and how to organize this physical evidence. A disability lawyer will ensure the proper paperwork is filed before the deadline outlined to submit the claim, as well as any other legal obligations that become necessary.


Benefits to Hiring a Disability Lawyer

  • They understand the medical evidence needed. Most disability applicants don’t have all the appropriate paperwork and medical records they submit over to the Social Security Administration (SSA), consequently they their claim then gets denied and they have to start the timely process all over again. SSD attorneys are well aware of the crucial pieces of medical information, scans or images, and test results that are needed to prove the disability claim.

  • They communicate with medical providers. Disability lawyers often converse directly with the medical professionals that are involved with a patient in order to address concerns associated with your claim.

  • They provide support during legal hearings. You are much more likely to win your disability appeal if you have a lawyer. Your lawyer knows the complexities of the appeal process and therefore, will submit a more persuasive appeal for reconsideration, in addition to the familiarity in how this heading is conducted.
