Social Security Disability Appeal in Nevada
Our Las Vegas Social Security Disability Lawyer Can Help
If the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies your disability benefits, you have a right to appeal the denial of your claim. Our law firm recommends getting legal help if you have not already done so. This is because disability lawyers do this for a living and know what the SSA is looking for and what documentation (or lack thereof) often leads to a denial. Our disability attorney offers a free consultation and his fees are structured and capped by the government, which means that he receives payment only if you win your case. In many cases, with the help of counsel, you will be successful and receive the benefits you deserve.
The first level of your social security disability appeal is a reconsideration. While most are denied, you often have to take this step to be able to continue with the appeal. We recommend having your attorney help you put this together as it is important to get all of the facts clearly laid out for the SSA. This may include contacting physicians and witnesses, as well as analyzing why you may have been denied to see if you can easily correct any errors. The laws are complicated and ever-changing. Experienced legal counsel can guide you through the process.
What Are the Chances of Winning My Social Security Disability Appeal?
The SSA denies most initial claims for disability benefits. Many times during an initial review, the SSA does not properly take into consideration certain elements of a case, does not conduct a thorough review of medical conditions or misinterprets the defining regulations. When it denies your benefits, you have the right to reconsideration. If you are denied reconsideration, the next appeal is a formal disability hearing in front of a federal Administrative Law Judge. Using a law firm may increase your chances of a favorable decision, simply because the attorneys know exactly what the judges need and you need to put your best foot forward immediately
