Benefits of Hiring a California Social Security Attorney
Do you have a disability? Hiring a California Social Security Disability Attorney can greatly decrease the headache of filing for disability or dealing with other bureaucratic problems. Here are some of the benefits of having a California Social Security Lawyer on your side:
Social Security Law is a Labyrinth of Rules and Regulation
If you are filing a claim, there are many technical details that you will have to be mindful of when preparing your case. The Social Security Administration has many often seemingly arbitrary rules and may even change them without your realizing.
Lawyers who specialize in Social Security thoroughly understand the procedures that you will have to go through, and can give you advice every step of the way, so that you never have to be confused.
Social Security Disability Claims Are Often Denied
A large number of disability claims are denied every year by the Social Security Administration, even when the person is perfectly entitled to the claim. Why? Technical oversight. Nearly a third of applications are denied merely on technical grounds, before the Social Security Administration has reviewed the more important aspects of the case, such as the medical issue that the claimant has.
Many people find themselves having to appeal until they are approved. This can greatly delay their getting the help that they need. Hiring a lawyer not only speeds up this process and makes the steps more clear, but it can also save you from having to deal with the Social Security Administration again and again. Do it right the first time and you can get your benefits faster.
If You Must Appeal, There Are Time Limits
If, for whatever reason, your claim was denied by the Social Security Administration, there is usually a limited amount of time that you have to appeal their denial. When you must act fast like this, you need someone who knows the law and can put all of the needed paperwork together as quickly as possible.
You Pay Nothing Out of Pocket
You may think that filing by yourself is “free,” but it’s only free if you don’t value your time. An experienced lawyer can help you file quickly and efficiently, and in fact you don’t even have to pay anything up front in most cases. A Social Security lawyer will merely get a percentage of your benefits if you successfully win your case, and he is usually limited in the total dollar amount that he can receive as well.
In addition, if you fail to get your Social Security benefits in spite of your attorney’s help, you owe the attorney nothing. In other words, they work based on a contingency fee.
Filing for your California Social Security benefits can be a very draining experience, and you might feel overwhelmed by everything that you have to do just to get the money that you need.
This is why it is so important to have someone with you who knows the system and can help you through every step. For a free Social Security case consultation, call Fred Fleming at 1-800-882-5500.
