Have you received a denial notification regarding your disability claim? If so, don’t make one of the following common mistakes:
· Fail to file an appeal. Don’t just accept the denial as the final word on your claim. Contact one of our knowledgeable attorneys to determine if you should appeal the decision. The first appeal will submit your case for reconsideration and these requests are almost always denied. If your reconsideration request is denied, we can file a request for a disability hearing. With our strategic preparation of your case, you have a strong chance of winning.
· Filing a new claim. Many claimants try to file a new claim instead of appealing the denial. Usually the case is denied again since it is handled by the same agency that issued the first denial. Filing the same disability application over and over is not effective. You are much more likely to be successful in appealing a denial and having your case heard by a judge. At a hearing you can submit your evidence and actually meet the individual deciding your case.
· Missing the deadline to appeal. Many claimants are not sure what to do when they receive the denial of their claim and they wait too long to take action. As soon as you receive your denial, you should contact us to help with your appeal. We will ensure that the paperwork for your appeal is properly prepared and timely filed.
There are many other mistakes that can be made when your disability claim has been denied, so don’t risk losing the compensation you are entitled to by not seeking help. Contact one of our seasoned social security attorneys to ensure that your legal rights are protected. We will help you seek the maximum amount of compensation available to you.
