Understanding a Discouraging Process

We’ve heard it a number of times.  People who have been injured or gotten sick and are unable to work seeking Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, trusting the system to work for them.  Watching as their hope turns into discouragement and finally, despair.  Understanding the process and working with an attorney who can help you know what to expect and how to proceed is critical.

The Social Security process generally involves three steps: the initial application, the reconsideration and the hearing:

The vast majority of initial applications for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are denied.  Trusting applicants spend time gathering information and jumping through hoops only to find their application has not been accepted.  In reality, all that planning and preparation have only served to lengthen the process.  We work to get you to the reconsideration stage as quickly as possible.
The sad truth is a majority of reconsiderations for Social Security Disability (SSD) are also denied.  Far from being a more elevated, authoritative body considering an appeal, the reconsideration team is generally just a different group of people within the same office.
The hearing phase is the first chance a person really gets in front of a body that can affect the outcome of a case – the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review.

Minimizing the Wait

Judges and doctors speak different languages helping craft medical speak into legal speak.  With our assistance, we often help our clients avoid having to go to a hearing all together.  At Daniels Associates LLP, we serve as a kind of translator, helping craft an appeal that judges can understand.  Often, through our intervention, we have helped our clients avoid having to go to trial altogether.
