When illness, injury or disability disrupts your life and prevents you from working, you should be able to count on the safety net you’ve paid into for years. The Social Security Disability attorneys at McDivitt Law Firm can help you get the disability benefits you deserve.
Social Security Disability appeals
Most people who come to our legal team for help are facing a 60-day deadline to file an appeal after their initial disability claim was denied.
The Social Security Administration publishes statistics showing that it denies more than 70 percent of initial claims. Many of those applicants are genuinely disabled and in serious need of the benefits, but they simply didn’t present a strong enough case.
Our experienced attorneys work with many clients who should have been approved for disability benefits initially. Errors or weaknesses in their applications resulted in a rejection.
Because the disability lawyers at McDivitt Law Firm handle hundreds of SSDI applications and appeals, they know what to look for and how to help you strengthen your application for the appeal.
Getting legal help on the initial application
Many people manage their initial application for disability benefits on their own in an effort to save on legal fees. If you feel confident you can do it on your own, this might be an option for you.
However, our experienced Pueblo disability lawyers are familiar with the process and know how to build the strongest possible SSDI application, increasing your chances of success.
The fees for legal help with an initial disability application are almost always lower than they will be for an appeal and our Our Pueblo SSDI lawyers only get a fee when they successfully win benefits for you. The legal fee has a government-mandated cap and that fee will only be taken from back pay owed to you, not from the future benefits your receive.
