Grand Prairie Social Security Disability Benefits Lawyer for Denied Claims

When you need Social Security benefits, you really need them. When a disability prevents you from working and earning enough to meet your needs, you may have nowhere else to turn. This social safety net is in place for a good reason. No one should be left unable to provide for themselves due to a disability. When a new disability, like a car accident injury, removes you from the workforce, or if you were never able to work, Social Security can provide you with essential benefits. However, if your disability claim is denied, you may be left wondering, "Now what will I do?"

The Law Office of Dennis R. Croman, Inc. knows how frustrating and even panic-inducing a denial of disability benefits can be. Our firm is here to help you get the benefits you need. The Social Security appeals process can be very confusing. It can be hard to determine what type of appeal you need to make or how to navigate the process. Trying to appeal on your own may not produce the results you want. You need an attorney who is experienced with these cases.

The Reasons for Social Security Denials and How a Farmers Branch Lawyer Can Help

When a lifelong disability keeps you out of the workforce or a new disability prevents you from returning to it, providing for yourself can be impossible without assistance. Those who have never been able to work due to a disability or who are over 65 typically seek Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Those who have worked for some time and acquired a disability typically apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

The appeals process for both types of benefits is roughly the same, and the strategy our lawyers will use to appeal your denial depends on the reason you were denied. The most common reason people are denied has to do with the medical evidence of a disability. You know yourself and your abilities or disabilities better than anyone, so it can feel invalidating when you are told that your disability does not qualify you for benefits.

Other reasons legitimate claims may be denied include:

  • Your monthly earnings or perceived resources are too high.
  • You are alleged to have not followed a medical treatment plan.
  • Your disability is suspected to be too short-term.
  • You were unable to provide all the documentation requested and are perceived as being uncooperative with the process.

After identifying the reason for your denial, The Law Office of Dennis R. Croman, Inc. will start preparing for your appeal by helping you obtain additional documentation as needed. Simply being represented by a lawyer who understands the process, deadlines, requirements, and qualifications can go a long way.

Generally, there are four stages of the appeals process. Our attorney will closely guide you through each of them. The stages are:

  1. Reconsideration - We can present additional evidence as a new team reviews your claim.
  2. Hearing - Your case will be heard in front of an administrative law judge, who will review the evidence and your testimony. We can bring in expert witnesses if needed.
  3. Appeals Council - A panel will review the findings from step 2. If necessary, we can introduce new or additional evidence at this stage to strengthen your case. If we believe that making an oral argument is in your best interests, we will.
  4. Federal Courts - If you have exhausted your options for appealing your claim through Social Security, we can appeal all the way to the U.S. District Court or pursue additional appeals to higher courts if necessary. Most cases never reach this step - it is usually a last resort.
