As mentioned previously on this blog, there are various reasons a Social Security benefits claim is denied and more often than not, the first application is denied. However, it is important to keep in mind that just because the application has been denied does not mean that you are not disabled-there are various non medical reasons an application can be denied. Texas residents should not let a denial keep them down-there is a specific process to follow for filing an appeal and they should start working on it as soon as possible.
Working with a lawyer during the original application can take away some of the overwhelming feelings Social Security Disability applicants go through — the process is lengthy and complicated but we help take the guesswork out of the equation. Even if you filed your application without a lawyer, it is never too late to seek assistance, especially if the claim was denied.
Since there is a deadline within which the appeal must be filed, it is important to begin work on it as soon as possible. It is also beneficial to have someone who has experience in administrative law judge hearings and appeals at all levels by your side. Having represented clients in hundreds of hearings in almost 20 years of practice, our founding lawyer has both extensive knowledge and experience that can be beneficial at times like this.
When a claim is denied, the applicant may feel like doubting his or her own disability. Lawyers in our firm understand the whirlwind of emotions a denial can cause and believe in our client while we aggressively fight to get them the benefits they deserve. To learn more, visit our SSD page.
