What Happens if I Lose My Disability Case

Published on August 16th, 2017

If your Social Security disability claim is denied, it’s important to know what to do next. You will need a skilled attorney for the disability claim litigation process, so this is the time to find one, if you haven’t already. You should know the process going forward, so you don’t miss any steps.

Disability and Social Security

What to do if your Social Security disability claim is denied:

– Make sure to appeal immediately.

You only have 60 days during which to appeal the initial decision, so it’s important to do this immediately. The appeal should be on record as soon as possible. You don’t want to have to start all over by not filing the appeal in time.

– Hire a skilled attorney.

A lawyer who specializes in disability claim litigation will be very valuable during this process. This person has been through this before and can bring his or her expertise to your case. This attorney will help you build your case and gather additional information. This person also knows what expert witnesses can be used and how to best move forward. This is probably your first time through this process, but a skilled lawyer with Social Security disability claim experience has done this multiple times.

– Go through the reason behind your denial.

When you received your determination, it also included an explanation about why your claim was denied in the first place. You need to evaluate this and address it as you move forward. This will give you the information that you need in order to prepare your case.

– Obtain additional medical documentation.

Maybe you didn’t have enough medical documentation the first time around. This is the time to make sure all of this information is in order. This may require an additional trip to the doctor. You need to have information about your diagnosis, any tests that were performed, medications tried and all doctor visits. The more information you can provide, the better chance that you will have of being successful this time around. Your lawyer can help you organize this information and assure that you have everything that will be necessary for the disability claim litigation.

When your Social Security disability claim is denied, it can be very stressful. Knowing how to proceed going forward will be a great help to you. Contact us with any questions!

Testimonial by Lilliam Rivera-Reyes

"I had a very challenging case; another attorney took my case and to my surprise sent me a letter dropping my case. I was very down and did not think I had a chance, until I met Mr. Berger and his staff.

Their professionalism and hospitality was very warm and inviting. They took my case on as a challenge and gave me a hope. I am very thankful for his professionalism and for winning my case. I will never forget him and will recommend him to my friends and family."
