Hiring an attorney can feel like a big, official step. Recruiting the professional sport of a licensed legal professional to help you through your Social Security disability claim need not be added stressed. In fact, hiring a Social Security disability attorney can take a huge weight off of your shoulders. Here, we discuss whether you should hire a Social Security disability lawyer.

Should I Hire a Social Security Disability Lawyer?

You should absolutely consider hiring a Social Security disability lawyer. Did you know that disability applicants who retain an attorney to handle their disability claim, whether it be in regards to Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), can be more likely to have their applications approved? This is true for a number of reasons.

For instance, Social Security disability attorneys tend to have detailed knowledge of what specific supporting medical evidence you need to successfully back your claim for disability benefits. In fact, having the right medical evidence is almost critical to having your application approved. All too often, applicants fail to provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) with the precise medical evidence needed to successfully process a claim. Instead, the applicant provides too much of the wrong records or too little. A Social Security disability attorney can assist you with obtaining and presenting all your medical records.

Additionally, should your claim need to be appealed, as many do, a disability attorney will have experience with the appeals hearing process to help you be successful. With experience, a Social Security Disability attorney is able to properly navigate the steps to get your claim through the difficult and confusing Social Security Disability process.
