If you have been exploring your options to collect federal benefits after suffering a disabling injury or illness, chances are you have found a wealth of information. You may also already be aware that it is possible to apply for benefits online and without the help of an attorney. However, as too many people have learned, it can be a much more complicated process than applicants realize and it can help to have support.
Having an attorney can be crucial for people who want to do whatever they can to try and avoid lengthy complications and costly mistakes when applying for Social Security disability benefits. Our law firm can prove to be an important ally and support system at all phases of pursuing SSDI.
Before an application is even filed, we can help people gather all the appropriate documentation that must be submitted. This includes records of employment, diagnoses, medical treatment and other pertinent information that is needed.
When submitting an application, we can take steps to ensure that deadlines are met and paperwork is filed appropriately. We can also work to ensure that your claim is not unnecessarily delayed.
In the event that an application is denied, we can help people understand their options for filing an appeal and prepare for a hearing. Knowing what to expect can be a great source of comfort for people who otherwise would not have known that they still have options.
Before, during and after the process of seeking SSDI benefits, it can be easy to get lost or confused. Many people without help decide to just give up. If you are in a position to apply for disability benefits, you are likely already dealing with enough stress and anxiety over your health; the pressure of trying to successfully apply for critical benefits can prove to be overwhelming.
Rather than give up or assume you have to go through this alone, you can visit our law firm’s website to learn more about how we may be able to help you and how you can contact us to discuss your case.
