Dealing with SSD Denial

Posted on: August 9, 2017 by Edwards & Patterson Law

SSD Denial

Your Social Security Disability claim may be denied at any stage of the application, and appealing the decision is time sensitive. You have limited time to appeal the process, depending on when the claim is denied. Dealing with SSD denial adds to an already difficult time in your life, as you still have to cope with the challenges of your disability. You will need support in fighting the decision from people who understand the system and how decisions are made.

There is a perception that hiring a lawyer to represent you in your fight is not worth it. This perception largely centers on the fact that since you are not receiving payments, you won’t have the financial means to pay for a lawyer.

However, having an experienced lawyer on your side will greatly increase your chances of winning your appeal. It is important to seek legal assistance early in the process, too. When you receive a SSD denial in the early stage of the process, seek help from a disability lawyer immediately. Any delay could jeopardize your appeal.

Disability Lawyer for SSD Denial

In cases involving compensation or SSD claims, it is generally accepted that the represented party will not have access to the finances needed to hire a lawyer. Instead, your disability lawyer will take a percentage of the disability pay you receive when the case is settled.

A large percentage of people who have received a SSD denial go on to win their appeal, and your chances of a win significantly increases when you are represented by an expert in arguing SSD denials at appeal. You only have 60 days from the point that you receive the official SSD denial to build a case. Your appeal relies on building the best case possible within that time and lodging an official appeal.

At Edwards & Patterson, our ethos is built around the slogan, “We care. We fight. We win!” We do not see our clients as customers, we see you as individuals with your own unique wants and needs. While this makes Edwards & Patterson a more approachable group of people to work with, it has the added benefit of allowing us to better fight for your case.

When a lawyer represents a client, there are two ways to approach the relationship. Although the law, as practiced, is typically cold and impartial, the most successful lawyers understand the human element to any case is what wins the fight.

When Edwards & Patterson goes to bat for you, it is the relationship we have forged with you as much as our legal expertise that wins the fight. For more information on how we can represent you, contact Edwards & Patterson and speak to one of our team.
