The Help You Need Getting Disability Payment
You’ve been seriously injured or contracted a serious illness that prevents you from being able to work. Whether you are at the beginning of the process of seeking Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits or your claim has already been denied, you know that the process is daunting. The Social Security Administration (SSA) denies a lot of claims for benefits on first application, and the entire process is marked by legal details and procedural challenges. You need a lawyer who can help you through the process.
At Stark Law Group, LLC, we can help you. Our lead attorney, Eric Stark, has more than 15 years of legal experience, and our team has handled many SSD claims. We take a personalized, dedicated approach. When you work with our firm, we will be available to you throughout your case, helping you through every step of the process until you obtain the benefits you need.
If you have suffered a disability, you probably have no other way of earning an income. Your benefits are not simply a bonus. You NEED these benefits, and we can help you get them.
What Is A Disability?
Basically, the SSA defines a disability as the loss of the ability to do any gainful activity as a result of an injury. The injury can be physical or mental, but it has to be considered long-term, expected to last at least 12 months.
Why Are So Many Disability Claims Denied?
Many people who have had claims denied wonder why. There are a few common reasons why SSD applications are denied by the SSA. The most common reason is the medical terminology used. The SSA looks for very specific language and terminology on the medical reports submitted by your doctors. Often, a doctor will submit a report that will clearly establish a disability, but he or she perhaps uses different terminology, so the SSA will reject it. Another common problem involves simple clerical errors.
What Our Firm Can Do To Help You Secure Your Benefits
We know the process, we know what the SSA is looking for on these applications, and we know how to get our clients the benefits they need. If you have a legitimate claim, we will help you get the report you need from the doctor, with the correct terminology, and we will handle all of the clerical matters and filing of your application. If your claim has already been denied, we will help you through the appeals processes to secure your benefits.
Although every case is different and we cannot promise to get you the benefits you need, we can promise to do everything possible to increase your chances. By eliminating errors and handling the process properly, we can maximize your chances of getting the benefits you need.
