These may be questions you’ve been asking yourself – or others – if you’re dealing with a disability claim.  People hire a disability lawyer for several reasons, some being:

  • To help handle the disability application paperwork
  • To follow up with the Social Security Administration (SSA)
  • You typically don’t have to pay attorney fees unless you win your disability case

Navigating the disability system can be difficult, time-consuming and frustrating if you go it alone.  An experienced disability lawyer can help you sift through the paperwork, offer clarity, communicate with the SSA effectively and better your chances of winning your case.

The benefits of hiring a disability lawyer can go on and on, but it’s important to know when you need a disability lawyer to represent you in your case.  The following list of ways a disability lawyer can help you will assist you in determining if you need a disability lawyer for a successful outcome.
