September 22, 2016

When you are disabled and unable to work the stress can be overwhelming. You have many questions about Social Security disability (SSDI) and clear answers are hard to find. You are faced with having to make difficult decisions and you are unsure of where to turn for advice. We encourage you to turn to Nash Disability Law (NDL) to take advantage of a free consultation about your situation.

There are many essential reasons for hiring a lawyer to fight for your rights. We have created a short video in which Nash Attorney Demetra Geller spells out in clear, easy-to-understand language why hiring a local Social Security disability lawyer to represent you can be critically important. Don’t confuse your google search about your health problems and Social Security disability with her law degree. She has spoken with thousands of potential clients. See and listen to NDL intake Attorney Demetra Geller on why you need a lawyer regarding your SSDI/SSI claim.

Demetra explains that the road to Social Security disability benefits is long and difficult to navigate. There are three main reasons why you need a lawyer for your Social Security disability case:

  • Your lawyer will help collect the right evidence to support your case and get it to Social Security in a timely manner.
  • Your lawyer can help you understand the paperwork involved and the questions the government is going to ask you.
  • Most disability claims are denied upon initial application and the subsequent appeal; this means you will have to appear at a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge to plead your case. Your Nash lawyer will be there right beside you to advocate for you and to explain your situation in a way that the judge will understand. Nash lawyers attend these hearings every day in all of the five Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana hearing offices. They know the judges, the type of evidence they are looking for, and the testimony they want to hear.

If you are unable to work due to a disability, take about a minute and a half to watch this video.
