People who suffer from devastating illnesses and injuries often are unable to sustain meaningful employment. Instead, they need to access funds that are reserved for people who cannot earn incomes with which to sustain themselves or their families.
However, accessing these funds requires applicants to follow a lengthy and, many times, complex legal process. You can simplify and get through it successfully by hiring an experienced disability claim attorney to take your case.
Assistance with the Application
People who want to pursue these funds are required first to fill out and submit an application to the federal court. You can find and fill out the application online. However, it can be challenging to fill out completely, particularly if you are not familiar with the legal language used on it.
Instead of submitting an application that is improperly or partially completed, you can hire a disability claim attorney to assist you with it. The attorney and their staff can explain to you what information to include on it. They can also tell you what fields on the application must be completed and how to answer questions so the application will be accepted and not sent back to you.
Appearing in Court
The disability claim attorney can also appear in court with you and speak for you in front of the judge. The judge may ask dozens of complex questions that you may not know how to answer fully. Instead of answering the judge unsatisfactorily, you can hire a lawyer to advise you on how to answer and also request for them to answer some or all of the questions for you.
Appealing a Denial
Finally, the disability claim attorney can appeal your case if it gets denied. Many first-time applicants get denied and must appeal their cases. Instead of being dissuaded from pursuing funds that you need to survive, you can hire a disability claim attorney to file an appeal right away and keep appealing your case until the judge decides in your favor.
With each appeal, your disability claim attorney can include new evidence to show the extent of your illness or injury. They can convince the judge to rule in your favor quickly.
A disability claim attorney provides critical benefits to petitioners like you. They can help you fill out and submit the application properly. Your lawyer will also appear with you in court and file prompt appeals.
