Alabama Attorneys for Denied SSD Claims
Whether you are applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), the odds are that you will initially be denied benefits. Actually, the majority of individuals are denied the first time through the system, which is why the Social Security Administration crafted the appeals process. Having an experienced attorney guide you through the appeals process gives you a better chance of a successful resolution.
The Dothan Social Security Disability appeals attorneys at Espy, Metcalf & Espy have experience helping clients navigate the often challenging process of applying for and receiving SSD benefits. Appealing a denial gives an individual a chance to talk about his or her specific situation with a judge, rather than having an administrator review and deny his or her petition based upon letters and numbers.
Our Firm Can Help Through All Stages of an SSD Claim
Appealing a denial usually needs to happen within a specific amount of time. If you were not working with an attorney from the initial filing stage, it is wise to consult with a lawyer immediately after being notified of your denial. The appeals process is designed so you can talk directly to an administrative law judge and explain why this disability keeps you from working. Your lawyer will work with you and your medical provider to gather enough medical proof to prove to a judge that your claim is valid. Generally, it takes individuals close to a year to get the appeal heard. Working with a skilled attorney during this time gives you the best chance to receive your disability benefits.
