Why You Need a Social Security Disability Attorney
Every year, the Social Security Administration (SSA) receives thousands of applications for Social Security disability benefits. While the SSA attempts to review each claimant’s case and make a fair determination, mistakes are often made. Many applicants find that their initial application for Social Security disability benefits is denied, even though they meet the requirements for receiving such benefits.
The truth is, applying for Social Security disability benefits goes beyond simply completing an application and hoping that the SSA makes a favorable decision in your case. You must take the time to accurately and completely explain your case to the SSA. Our experienced Cleveland Social Security disability lawyers have years of experience handling Social Security disability claims and know how to help you complete a successful application.
Assistance with Paperwork
There are quite a few forms that you will need to complete in order to apply for Social Security disability benefits. Many of these forms can at times seem taxing and burdensome to applicants who simply do not have the time to complete the application in as much detail as is required for an application to be successful. Our experienced Social Security disability attorneys will work with you to help you complete all paperwork thoroughly and accurately, thus saving you valuable time and energy.
While the general process of applying for disability benefits is the same in every case, the information needed to support your claim will vary depending on your individual circumstances. At the Law Office of Kordic & Braun, you can expect our experienced Social Security disability attorneys to give you the personalized attention that your case requires. Our attorneys will take the time to work with you and to build your own personal strategy for success.
Gathering Medical Evidence
One of the biggest headaches that applicants for Social Security disability benefits face is working with their doctors to gather medical documentation that supports their claim. Often, applicants are unsure as to what information their doctor will provide and whether that information will ultimately help or hurt their case. Our office can prepare questions for your doctor that are tailored to your situation and designed to paint a clear, accurate picture of your disability for the SSA. Medical evidence provided by your doctors can be critical to the success or failure of your claim.
