If you are going through a disabling illness or an injury, you are probably going through a nerve-wrecking and overwhelming time. You are probably constantly scheduling doctor’s appointments, paying medical bills, and worrying about your finances.
You do not want any additional frustrations and concerns, but this is what you may be faced with if you apply for Social Security Disability benefit payments without having representation from a Columbia social security disability benefits lawyer.
There have been a large number of Social Security Disability claims that have been denied when the application was first submitted. You’re probably wondering how is that supposed to be good news. Well, a large number of those claims were eventually won at a hearing because of lawyer representation.
Any kind of government disability program will consist of a complex and time-consuming process. The design of the whole process was made to be difficult. So many people give up after they have been denied. You should not be one of those people. You should not give up if you have been denied; you can consult with a lawyer to help you determine what steps you should take next.
A Social Security Disability case is not the same as other legal matters. The laws and regulations are very technical, and there needs to be a certain level of understanding for the laws and procedures. You want to improve your chances of being approved; and while some people have been approved without having a lawyer on their side, you are more likely to be approved if you have legal representation.
If it is considered a smart decision to hire a lawyer before you have submitted an application, then it will be an even better decision to hire a lawyer after you have received that unfortunate denial letter. Not only will your chances of being approved increase, but you may also see your case move quicker through the system.
