Statistically, close to three quarters of all applications for Social Security disability benefits are rejected and the applicant is denied. This typically happens with the initial application and when the Administration is asked to reconsider their decision. To pursue the claim to the appeals stage it is a very good idea to have hired disability attorneys in Missouri to help and provide guidance.
Typically, applications that are rejected will have to be appealed to an Administrative Law Judge. When it reaches this stage have a disability lawyer at your side can certainly help win your claim. Of course, the attorney cannot guarantee that his or her client will be successful but the attorney can most certainly guarantee that the appeal will be presented properly and in the best light.
Develop the case:
All law is complex for a layperson; Social Security law is no different. The majority of people will not have an idea of how to prepare themselves and their case for an upcoming hearing. Disability attorneys in Missouri know the rules, regulations and laws that apply to Social Security inside-out. A seasoned attorney will know what to expect, he or she will have a good idea well in advance what the ALJ will be looking for based on the client’s specific condition and the attorney will know what medical evidence will be needed.
Disability attorneys work on contingency:
If you are concerned that you will not be in a position to pay the attorneys fee, don’t be. Disability attorneys in Missouri work on a contingency basis, this simply means that they get paid when you are awarded benefits and their fee comes from your back pay. As the award amount starts to accrue from the date of your initial application and the appeals process can be quite lengthy, there will certainly be sufficient funds available to pay the legal fee, which only applies to back pay, not your monthly payments.
The odds of your winning disability benefits are far better when you work with disability attorneys in Missouri. If you wish to discuss your case, you are invited to contact Grundy Disability Group.
