Disabled individuals that engage the professional services of Chicago disability lawyers are more likely to win their claim for Social Security benefits than those applicants that opt to “go it alone.” There are numerous reasons why this is so, knowing a few of them may help you decide if hiring a lawyer is the best choice based on your particular circumstances.
Knowing the medical evidence required:
Of all the criteria that must be met, the most important factor by far too ensuring approval of your claim is having solid medical evidence. Many applicants are easily confused; they don’t know precisely what evidence is required so they end up giving too irrelevant evidence or insufficient evidence.
Applicants that are represented by Chicago disability lawyers are more likely to be approved. Disability lawyers know what is required to support a client’s medical condition and they know how to develop it. After an in depth review of the case, an experienced lawyer will know if sufficient evidence exists or whether additional tests or records are needed. In a similar vein, lawyers know what information is not needed and make sure that irrelevant information is not submitted to the SSA.
As many claims for disability are denied, Chicago disability lawyers have a great deal of experience dealing with the appeals process. A large percentage of claims that have been denied are ultimately approved during an appeals hearing. Experienced lawyers know the process and they are familiar with the local administrative law judges; this ensures that they approach the hearing correctly and in accordance with the way in which the judge tends to like hearings conducted.
There are numerous arguments that a seasoned lawyer can use to win a disability case on behalf of a client. The lawyer knows from experience what approach will work best based on an intimate knowledge of the laws, rules and regulations that apply.
