Hiring an attorney does not automatically speed up the Social Security disability application process, but there are ways that a Social Security disability attorney can make sure that your claim is not delayed. Our staff of attorneys, paralegals, legal secretarial assistants and legal clerks is dedicated to keeping your claim running smoothly.
We Can Make Sure There Are No Unnecessary Delays
Specifically, our Social Security disability attorneys can:
- Save you time by doing the legwork for you. Necessary tasks such as obtaining medical records, special reports, and interrogatories can be very burdensome to you, but they are routine for us. We know what materials to ask for, how to ask for them, and how to ensure that they are received in a timely fashion.
- Make sure that your initial application contains all of the relevant information. Many initial Social Security disability applications are denied for failing to meet specific requirements. Our experienced lawyers can help prevent this from happening to you by making sure that your application contains all relevant information in the required format. This will help your application be approved on the first try.
- Monitor the status of your claim to make sure that it is being processed properly. Sometimes it is necessary to stay on top of the status of an application to make sure that it is being processed correctly.
- File any necessary appeals within the required time limits. We will also make sure that your appeal is received and processed correctly by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Additionally, we can answer all of your questions in a timely manner and make sure that you are well informed about the status of your case.
The SSA has professionals working hard on its behalf and you deserve the same advantage.
