Social Security Disability Claim Denied?

Getting help is just that easy! We are here to help you with your social security disability claim.

Talk With A Lawyer

It may be frustrating to learn that your Social Security Disability benefits claim has been denied after many years of faithfully paying your fair share into our Social Security system. In fact, many hard working people that can no longer earn a living, seek help by applying for Social Security benefits, and yet sadly, only 35 percent of those applications are initially approved.

While there can be many reasons why a claim is denied:

  • documentation errors
  • ineligibility
  • leaving out necessary information

…. it’s important to note that even after the reconsideration of your claim, statistics have shown that only a portion of reviewed applications are successful.

Whatever reason has caused your benefits to be denied, by enlisting the services of a reputable attorney, you can greatly increase the chances of having your benefits restored. Here at Lewis & Keller, a Social Security Disability lawyer can help to guide you through every step of the application process.

If your benefits have been denied or if you have become disabled and need help refiling – we can help to determine why, and then put together a strong case for your next hearing.

What Can I Do To Help?

During the last year, our government has been trying to speed up the process, in an effort to reduce the huge backlog of cases now moving through the Social Security system. With this in mind, the way you present the evidence of your disability or forgetting proper documentation may cause your claim to be rejected.

In order to put forward the best case possible, there are some easy things you can do that can assist us in getting your disability claim approved (and help you to receive your disability payments sooner).

Some of these include (but are not limited to):

  • Be sure to keep every document that you receive during the process of filing your claim
  • Keep all of those documents in order
  • Before your hearing, be able to describe your functional limitations in detail
  • Try to obtain a statement that details your disability from your doctor (and family if possible)
  • Have them available at your hearing
  • Remember to file for Social Security disability the minute your disability takes you out of work

By putting your Social Security Disability claim in the hands of an experienced SSD lawyer at Lewis & Keller. You may find that you receive a speedier and more successful outcome with the help of our North Carolina Social Security disability attorney.

Workers’ Compensation Settlement

We were lucky to represent a hard working family man this year that suffered a laceration to his spleen.  He was very resilient and was released from all medical treatment only 17 days after his crash.  His medical expenses were about $50,000 and the case settled for $100,000.  Because his health insurance did not require repayment, he was able to keep over $60,000 of that settlement money.
