You do not have to have an attorney to apply for Social Security disability benefits, but it is highly advisable. More than 75 percent of initial disability claims are denied, some with good cause and others because of applicant error. When a Board Certified Social Security disability attorney assists you with the process, the likelihood of your claim being approved increases.
How can an attorney help my Social Security disability case?
Chad Brown Law helps disabled workers, children and survivors obtain the Social Security benefits to which they are entitled. The Social Security system gives many Americans the right to helpful cash benefits. However, obtaining benefits is not always simple. Our attorneys can help you through any stage of the application and appeals process and answer any questions you may have along the way. Below are some of the ways we can assist you:
- explain hard-to-decipher details about eligibility and requirements
- complete all the paperwork and forms and double-check for completeness and accuracy
- explain how other benefits you receive may affect your disability benefits
- warn you about the mistakes that can ruin claims
- gather the medical and financial records you need to prove your claim
- help avoid delays and wrongful denials
- appeal the SSA’s decision if it denies your request for benefits
What if I can’t afford an attorney for my Social Security disability case?
Many people don’t hire an attorney because they wrongly assume they cannot afford one. Chad Brown Law works on a contingency basis. We do not request payment upfront. We will not request payment unless and until we help you obtain benefits. In other words, we offer essentially risk-free legal representation for our clients. In most cases, the fee is set at 25 percent of the past-due benefits you are owed; however, the government places a fee cap on most case types.
