It’s not uncommon for people to have problems receiving Social Security disability benefits, even in the event they qualify for them. Many people feel as if they have no recourse after they have been denied. A person can try to negotiate with the Social Security Administration on their own, but this approach isn’t likely to have a great deal of success. Perhaps one of the best things that can be done is for an individual to contact an SSDI Attorney to discuss their situation. Unfortunately, people tend to be a bit nervous about these sorts of situations. As such, there are a few things that should be kept in mind.
When a person contacts an attorney that handles Social Security disability issues, the first thing they’ll do is either speak with the attorney themselves or they may speak with one of the staff. Regardless, these initial interviews typically consist of the person being asked a series of questions to determine the details of their case. Whether a person is speaking with a staff member or the attorney, both have been trained to spot cases that have the best chances at succeeding. For that reason, a person will typically know if their case has merit by the end of the phone conversation.
If the case has merit, the attorney will call again to collect all the medical information necessary to lay out their case to the Social Security Administration. These documents will be sent to the administration prior to the hearing, which the attorney will likely schedule after they decide to take a case.
In addition, the attorney will also help prepare an individual for their hearing. Not only will the attorney lay out a great deal of information to the Social Security Administration, but there will also likely be questions for the attorney’s client. That is where the SSDI Attorney will help prepare their client to answer a wide range of questions. Not all of these questions will be asked, but the attorney will likely want a person to be as prepared as possible for any eventuality.
