When Should I Hire An SSD Attorney?

Many people fill out their initial application for Social Security Disability benefits on their own. Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration often denies many first-time applications because of inadequate information or errors made on the complex application.

While many lawyers do not like to involve themselves until the appeals process, at Philip J. Fulton Law Office in Columbus, Ohio, we will help you through every phase of applying for SSD benefits. Having an SSD attorney in your corner throughout the process can help you cover all your bases for having the strongest claim for benefits possible.

Why Do I Need An Attorney?

While it may seem straightforward to claim SSD benefits, the SSA rejects many first-time disability benefit applicants. Our lawyers can help you determine if you have a qualifying condition and then look at other factors that will affect your chances of receiving benefits. A lawyer can help with crucial steps in the process such as:

  • Working with your doctor to ensure that you have the right medical evidence documenting the severity of your condition
  • Helping you take into account any part-time work you may be doing
  • Determining if you qualify for other benefits such as Supplemental Security Income
  • Helping you prepare for any possible testimony in an appeals hearing

If you have already filed an initial application and the government denied your claim, now is the time to reach out. We have extensive experience with the appeals process and have helped many people who did not provide the right information. When you need these benefits to make ends meet, it is important to receive the best possible representation.

We Will Be With You Every Step Of The Way
