Will Hiring an Orlando Social Security Disability Attorney Improve My Odds of Winning My Case?

If you are struggling with a disability that keeps you from working at all, you need to consider applying for Social Security Disability benefits. However, the application process can be challenging, and it’s not uncommon to have your claim denied initially. You may be wondering whether hiring an attorney can be helpful at all or not. While an attorney cannot guarantee you will receive benefits, the right Orlando Social Security disability benefits attorney can undoubtedly improve your chances.

 

At the Law Offices of Shea A. Fugate, P.A., our legal team has years of experience with both Social Security disability and veterans’ disability benefits claims. We understand the nuances of these programs and how challenging it can be to receive approval. Let us put our experience to work for you and help improve your chances of receiving an approval for Social Security disability benefits in Florida.

 

Importance of the Right Documentation

 

Having the proper evidence is one of the most critical aspects of your claim. Without the appropriate support, the Social Security Administration will deny your application. We understand what types of information the reviewers are looking for, and we know what causes them to deny applications for lack of supporting evidence.

 

The information you submit should include physician notes, exam notations, details about your restrictions and limitations, etc. You should have copies of your diagnostic tests, labs, the prescription medication you are on, and more. Don’t be afraid to start keeping a pain journal, either. Your journal can be a great way to jog your memory and maintain regular records of how your illness or injury affects you.

 

What Happens If Your Claim Is Denied?

 

If your application is denied, do not despair. We also help numerous clients who applied and were denied on their first try. Sometimes, you may receive a second denial as well. After two rejections, you will need to request a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). There is often a long period of time between the denial and when the hearing is set. We will continue to work tirelessly to gather the necessary information that supports your claim for benefits.

 

Assistance at the Hearing

 

When you have to appear at a hearing with an administrative law judge after your claim is denied, you need a legal advocate who can help you through the hearing. Your attorney will support you at the hearing, submit all necessary evidence to the judge, and we can even ask you questions that show support of your claim. We know what to expect at these hearings as we’ve attended them with clients before. It’s been demonstrated over the years that having an attorney represent you can have a positive impact on your case. You are much more likely to be approved when working with a lawyer specializing in Orlando Social Security Disability cases.
