Making Sure Your Attorney Takes Your Strong Social Security Disability Case

October 27, 2016

If you have sustained an injury or illness that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, which are governed by the Social Security Administration (SSA). But individuals with disabilities do not qualify for SSD benefits automatically; they have to meet certain SSA criteria. Once may to ensure that you get the best representation possible is to hire a Philadelphia Social Security Disability lawyer to help you with your claim. At Larry Pitt & Associates, we help our clients collect information, document their injuries and work with their doctors to ensure they have everything they need to be successful.

Sometimes, though, clients come to us and they don’t give us enough information to help them. Other times, there may be things that identify weaknesses in a SSD case. Some of the problems we see with cases include:

  • Lack of sufficient medical evidence to support the case even though the claimant’s disability has been properly diagnosed
  • Inconsistent treatment
  • Medical experts refusing to make statements that support the case
  • Conflicting claims for unemployment benefits
  • People whose conditions do not qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

People who are under the age of 45 often have a difficult time winning their cases, simply because they are so young. It is important to remember that these types of claims take time, as well. If you seek the assistance of a Philadelphia SSD attorney, make sure you and your new lawyer have enough time to review your records and your case files, so that the lawyer can present a strong argument on your behalf.

If you or your loved one has a disability, and you don’t know where to turn for help, do not worry. Talk to an experienced Philadelphia Social Security Disability lawyer at Larry Pitt & Associates.
