If you are disabled you should consider hiring a disability lawyer to help you win your case. There are a tremendous number of benefits to having professional representation. All legal cases are complicated, when you take into account that winning disability benefits involves the Federal Government you can understand why having a knowledgeable lawyer is important. You don’t have to be overly concerned about not being able to afford a good Social Security law firm in Tacoma Wa; you pay the firm out of your back pay award and only if they win your case.
When should you hire the lawyer?
As they say, “There is no time like the present.” Even if all you’re doing at this stage is considering filing for disability benefits you should take advantage of the free evaluation of your case that most law firms offer. A seasoned disability lawyer can help you decide if your case is strong and if so, the lawyer can begin immediately by helping with the initial application for benefits.
Many applicants will not approach a lawyer until they first find out whether their initial application is accepted or denied. Going back to the “no win, no fee” issue, it really doesn’t make a great deal of sense not to use a lawyer from the outset, there is a better chance that you will be approved.
Hiring a Social Security law firm in Tacoma Wa from the outset is wise; hiring the firm once you have been notified that your application has been rejected is a no-brainer.
Rejection is par for the course really, about two thirds of all applications are denied at the outset. The next phase is to appeal the decision and since lawyers have been involved in many appeals they know what to expect and how to deal with it. In the majority of cases, when you are helped by a lawyer during the appeal process there is a very good chance that the initial decision to deny benefits will be overturned.
It is always a good idea to hire a Social Security law firm in Tacoma Wa to help you with your disability benefits application and subsequent appeal. You are invited to discuss your case with the Kenneth N. Gormly, Attorney at Law.
