While it is possible to file for and receive Social Security Disability benefits without an attorney, the process can be complex and confusing. The initial stages involve a significant amount of paperwork that can be overwhelming, especially for someone who is suffering from a disabling physical or mental condition. And, as most people are not awarded benefits until the hearing stage, having an attorney experienced with this process can help ensure that all your paperwork is correctly completed, all your medical records are collected and properly submitted and that you are properly prepared for the hearing. An attorney can also ensure that a proper record is made so that you will be able to appeal all unfavorable decisions.
In fact, having an experienced attorney will better your chances of winning Social Security Disability benefits.
For help with a Social Security Disability claim at any stage, you should consult with a qualified and experienced Social Security Disability attorney.
