Claim Denied? Don't Give Up
An Attorney Can Help You Appeal
Many people with legitimate disabilities are shocked to find out their Social Security Disability (SSD) claim has been denied. They may feel they've run out of options and look at an uncertain future. They may wonder whether they'll be able to provide for their families or keep their homes.
It's important not to give up. The truth is that the government denies so many claims that appealing a denied application is almost a routine part of the application process. You may even need to go through multiple appeals before getting the benefits you need.
Working through that long and complex process can be a challenge. That's where we come in. Recht Law Offices has been serving people in need throughout the Weirton-Steubenville area since 1952. Attorney Steven M. Recht will help you through every stage of the appeal process to help you get your disability benefits.
How a disability lawyer can help
An experienced and competent disability attorney can assist by accurately filling out the paperwork and making sure deadlines are met. Most appeals must be filed within 60 days of the judge's decision. The appeals process can involve several steps, from a reconsideration of your initial claim denial, to an administrative law judge hearing, to an appearance before the Appeals Council. A mistake in any stage of the process can doom your claim, which is why it's so important to be represented by an experienced and thorough attorney.
It's important to be fully prepared if you are appealing a denied Social Security claim. You should have medical evidence and other supporting documentation available. Our legal team will help you bring together all of the evidence needed to support your case. We will advocate for you at every stage, whether it's a low-level appeal or a lawsuit in U.S. District Court, the last possible appeal.
