What If I Am Denied Social Security Disability Benefits?

Pittsburgh Social Security Disability Attorney

Don't be discouraged if you are denied disability benefits after your initial application. A large number of cases are denied at this stage. Do not give up or file a new application. The best approach is to file an appeal since the likelihood of success is far greater at this stage in the process. The Social Security Disability attorneys at Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., can help you through the appeal process and greatly increase the likelihood of a favorable decision.

One of the reasons disability applicants have a better chance upon appeal is that they will have the opportunity to appear with an advocate and present their case before an Administrative Law Judge. This will enable them to explain to the judge how their impairments affect them on a day-to-day basis and how they are precluded from engaging in any full-time work activity. The hearing is also an opportunity to present more extensive or up-to-date medical evidence to support your disability claim. Your disability attorneys at Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., will gather the relevant evidence, prepare you to testify and present arguments to the Administrative Law Judge.

Remember, you have 60 days from the date of your denial to file an appeal, so contact our office as soon as possible. Our lawyers are available for a free consultation regarding disability benefits and the appeal process. Remember, Social Security cases are contingency-fee based, so you are charged only if we win your case. The fee will be taken out of your retroactive benefits if you receive a favorable decision.
