Don’t Appeal Your Disability Denial without an Experienced Disability Appeal Lawyer on Your Side
A disability denial doesn’t have to be the end of your attempt to secure benefits. Many people can and do successfully overturn denials and receive the benefits they deserve by appealing.
However, a Chicago disability appeal is not something you want to try without professional help. Why?
Lack of objectivity. For most disability claimants, it is difficult to be objective about how they feel and how their impairments affect them. It is common for claimants to overestimate what they can do, underestimate the importance of certain limitations, or inadequately describe their limitations.
Lack of proper documentation. Patients also frequently fail to describe their symptoms sufficiently to their physicians and other healthcare professionals. This can result in inadequate documentation in the treatment notes. A disability appeal lawyer knows how the claimant’s age, education, past work experience, and residual functional capacity affect the disability decision and helps their clients to more effectively communicate with healthcare providers.
Lack of legal understanding. Because claimants are not involved with the law on a regular basis, they most likely don’t understand what they must establish, under the law, to qualify for benefits. However, an attorney with experience in handling Social Security disability denials is familiar with the law and knows what evidence is needed to establish disability.
