Don’t give up! You can appeal!
You’re not alone – most people who apply for Social Security disability benefits are denied.
For over 35 years, attorney Tom Nash has helped hardworking people like you turn their denials into approvals. It’s a FREE call, (312) 945-7567, to talk about your claim. If you don’t win benefits, there is no attorney fee.
Don’t delay starting your appeal
The first thing to know about appealing your SSDI denial is that you need to move fast.
Important! The Social Security Administration has a strict deadline to appeal.
The Multi-Step Process If Your Social Security Disability Claim is Denied
If your claim is denied, Nash Disability Law will fight to have your claim reconsidered. At that time, your case will be sent back to Springfield for a fresh review and a second decision by a different “adjudicator” who works for Social Security.
While Nash Disability Law is often successful for our clients at the reconsideration stage, keep in mind that roughly 85% percent of all reconsideration claims are denied by Social Security, so don’t get discouraged!
If your case is denied after the first appeal, Nash Disability Law will request a hearing for you. Your hearing before the Administrative Law Judge is very important. This is your first chance to explain your situation to a person with the authority to approve your claim.
It is crucial that you and the evidence are well-prepared. You are strongly encouraged to have an attorney in order to present the most effective case.
Tom Nash formerly worked for Social Security as one of its attorneys. He and his team of attorneys now help claimants win benefits by getting the right piece of evidence, at the right time, to the right person at Social Security, in the right way.
Nash Disability Law can:
- analyze your Social Security file,
- prepare your case,
- obtain additional evidence from doctors and medical providers,
- make legal arguments and prepare your testimony,
- question witnesses, and
- cross-examine any medical and vocational experts who testify at your hearing at the government’s expense.
Frequently, Social Security will bring in their own expert medical witnesses to provide testimony. That may hurt your chances of winning benefits. That’s another reason why you should contact us today.
At Nash Disability Law, an attorney will always represent you at your hearing, which may not be the case at other firms.
According to Social Security’s own statistics, people are more successful at winning benefits when they have representation. Representation is crucial.
Whether you have questions about applying for benefits or were already denied, fill out the form below or far better yet call (312) 945-7567 to speak with us about your case. There is no attorney fee or costs unless you win disability benefits.
