Why The Disabled May Need An Attorney

If you are disabled and unable to work in the Los Angeles area – or elsewhere in southern California – and you apply for Social Security disability benefits, you should have the help of an experienced Los Angeles Social Security disability lawyer. Applying for Social Security disability benefits is a legal procedure. It’s also quite a complicated process, and without an attorney’s help you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make mistakes that can delay your benefits. Disability applications and the laws governing disability benefits are sometimes difficult to understand. Let a good disability lawyer guide you through the process. A Social Security disability attorney can:

– help you compile your medical records and other evidence
– help you complete all of the paperwork accurately and completely
– ask Social Security to send you for a consultative medical exam
– obtain documents you need from the Social Security Administration
– prepare you to testify at your hearing
– protect your right to a fair hearing
– examine and cross-examine witnesses at your hearing
– make sure Social Security correctly calculates your benefits
– request a review of the hearing decision if necessary
– represent you in a federal court review of your case if necessary

While no guarantee can ever be made regarding benefits in any specific case, hiring an experienced Social Security disability attorney substantially increases the likelihood that you will be awarded Social Security disability benefits. It’s a lengthy procedure, but a good disability attorney can guide you through every step of the process so that you can begin receiving payments as quickly as possible. By ensuring that your forms and applications are accurate and complete, your attorney will help you avoid unnecessary delays in the process. If you are disabled and unable to work in the greater Los Angeles area, and you need to receive monthly disability payments, put your case immediately in the hands of an experienced Los Angeles Social Security disability lawyer.
