Why Should I Hire An SSI Attorney?
What most of our clients discover during their first attempt at filing for Social Security, when they file without the assistance of SSDI/SSI lawyers is that they are denied disability. The most recent stats available at ssa.gov showing trends of denied social security. When you’re already struggling to live the best quality of life you can, putting the time into filing a social security disability appeal often isn’t an option. It’s important to note that even with an attorney helping you at the initial stages of the SSDI/SSI process, this does not guarantee your claim will be accepted. The benefit of hiring an attorney at this initial stage is that attorneys use their knowledge to help with filing the application, and can assist in determining details such as the proper onset date of the disability.
Help Understanding the Benefits Process
The Social Security Administration (SSA) is the federal agency that manages retirement and disability benefits. Whether you are planning to apply for SSD or would like to appeal a claim that has been denied, it helps to fully understand the benefits process. All levels of this process are time-consuming and complex. An attorney with expertise in this field of law can answer your questions and guide you through the process. Most denials of disability benefits are appealed when filed with the representation of an ssi lawyer. We have over 40 years experience with the ins and outs of the system and even start the application process for you to best represent your claim.

What To Remember When Filing For Social Security Benefits
Make and keep records – Keep copies of receipts of all your expenses and medical care related to the incident.
You do not have to sign anything -You may not want to give an interview or recorded statement without first consulting with an attorney because the statement can be used against you. If you might be at fault or have been charged with a traffic or other offense, it may be advisable to consult an attorney right away. However, if you have insurance, your insurance policy probably requires you to cooperate with your insurance company and to provide a statement to the company. If you fail to cooperate with your insurance company it may void your coverage.
Your interests versus interests of an insurance company – Your interests and those of the other person’s insurance company are in conflict. Your interests may also be in conflict with your own insurance company. Even if you are not sure who is at fault, you should contact your own insurance company and advise the company of the incident to protect your insurance coverage.
There is a time limit to file an insurance claim – Legal rights, including filing a lawsuit, are subject to time limits. You should ask what time limits apply to your claim. You may need to act immediately to protect your rights.
Get it in writing – You may want to request that any offer of settlement from anyone be put in writing, including a written explanation of the type of damages which they are willing to cover.
Legal assistance may be appropriate – You may consult with an attorney before you sign any document or release of claims. A release may cut off all future rights against others, obligate you to repay past medical bills or disability benefits, or jeopardize future benefits. If your interests conflict with your own insurance company, you always have the right to discuss the matter with an attorney of your choice, which may be at your own expense.
How to find a workers comp attorney or social security attorney – If you need professional advice about a legal problem but do not know an attorney, you may wish to check with relatives, friends, neighbors, your employer, or co-workers who may be able to recommend an attorney. Your local bar association may have a lawyer referral service that can be found in the Yellow Pages or on the Internet.
Check a lawyer’s qualifications – Before hiring any lawyer you have the right to know the lawyer’s background, training, and experience in dealing with cases similar to yours.
