3 Reasons to Hire a Social Security Disability Benefits Attorney


Losing your ability to work can be an overwhelming experience. Your job is your livelihood, and when an unforeseen injury, illness, or medical condition prevents you from earning a living — you may end up feeling frustrated, confused, and alone.


The next course of action seems simple enough — filing your claim for disability benefits with the Social Security Administration. But what many fail to realize is that the application process can be complex and time-consuming. Applying for Social Security benefits involves much more than a few forms to fill out. This process includes extensive paperwork, gathering medical records, tax documents, and more.


You are not required to have an attorney to apply for your Social Security disability benefits. And you might even be tempted to do it alone — after all, the very reason you’re applying for benefits in the first place is that you can’t work or earn a living. So how can you afford to pay for an attorney anyway? Maybe a better question is: Can you afford not to?


The Stakes


When it comes to Social Security benefits — you deserve the best. Your well-being is too important — not only for you, but also for the loved ones around you. Do you have the time, expertise, and energy to obtain a favorable decision concerning your claim? Don’t get buried in a sea of paperwork, questions, and unknowns. It’s too easy to make a mistake during the application process that can compromise your eligibility. Why not hire an advocate to help you get a favorable decision for your Social Security disability benefits claim?


There’s little doubt that hiring a Social Security benefits attorney to help you in the application process will increase your chances of obtaining a favorable decision. 


Here are 3 reasons why:


1. Expertise


Law firms that specialize in helping individuals obtain Social Security disability benefits know exactly what it takes to get the application process right from start to finish. With an attorney in your corner, you can be sure that all the necessary paperwork, tax forms, medical records, etc. will be gathered and completed correctly. Plus, they’ll point out any other requirements you might not even be aware of.


2. Time


Any disability can be taxing on your mind and body. Attempting to complete all the necessary steps to even begin the application process can weigh you down or even bring on feelings of confusion and frustration. And being scatter-brained is simply no fun. But law offices possess the manpower and resources to get the process completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. Why not take a load off and save some time and enjoy some peace of mind?


3. Experience


Expertise is valuable, but it’s the experience that brings the expertise to the next level. With a knowledgeable, time-tested attorney by your side, you’ll feel the added comfort of knowing your case is in good hands. Specialty lawyers have seen it all, so any questions or unique challenges that may come up in your case can be answered with complete competence and confidence.
