If your doctor has diagnosed you with a disabling condition, you likely have many questions. What do I do next? How will I pay the bills? What resources are there to help me? And, perhaps most importantly, do I need an attorney?
Depending on your circumstances and the cause of your disability, there may be different options to pursue to help you and your family when an illness or injury leaves you unable to work. Getting an experienced Houston disability attorney on your side is, in most cases, one of the best first steps you can take to ensuring that your needs and the needs of your family will be met financially.
If you had a broken arm, you likely wouldn’t try to mend it yourself. You would see a medical professional who is experienced in dealing with injuries to treat the problem and help you heal. Navigating the confusing process of disability claims is no different. Most people aren’t experienced or knowledgeable in the process and what is required to have a claim approved. In fact, about 60% of Social Security disability claims are initially denied. More often than not, those whose claims are denied did not have legal representation in the process.
The Houston disability claims attorneys at the Law Offices Of M. Stanley Whitehead, can be your guide through the process. We can help you provide the necessary information to prove your claim to the Social Security Administration, answer questions that come up along the way, and be your representative in the event of an appeal.
If your claim has already been denied, having a disability denial attorney is even more important. The appeals process has its own intricacies, with specific deadlines that must be met. It can be a long process, and you must be prepared to fight for your benefits. This is not a time to be alone. Having a qualified legal team on your side will greatly improve your chances of having your benefits claim approved on appeal.
