Filing A Social Security Disability Claim

The first step to receiving Social Security benefits is to submit an application. This paperwork, referred to as the Disability Report, will outline the details of your injury. It is a detailed form that requires extensive medical information. People are often confused by the complexities of the application, and a few mistakes can cause the request to be denied.

Each year, the Social Security Administration denies a certain percentage of benefits claims. Many people who actually do qualify for Social Security are denied because of mistakes in their application or submission. If you have been denied benefits even though you were eligible, we can help.

After a denial, it is important that you speak with a Social Security Disability attorney to understand what went wrong the first time and work on an appeal to recover the benefits. You have 60 days from the denial to appeal. We will carefully listen to your situation and help you rework the application to show the severity of your disability and the toll it has taken on your ability to work. Our lawyers are very knowledgeable of this process, including common mistakes and reason for which the administration denies claims. We will provide solutions to those mistakes and work toward an approved application.
