Most importantly, don’t give up.
It’s frustrating — sometimes even heart-breaking — when the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies your claim for disability. You might have been counting on those benefits to keep food on the table and support your household.
And while the appeals process can be a complicated process, you can still get disability benefits by appealing.
Most people who apply are turned down. But at Baynetta M. Jordan, P.C., Attorney at Law, our goal is to turn your denial into an approval.
We proudly help people in Lubbock, Plainview, Levelland or anywhere in West Texas when you’re facing difficult times and the government tries to stand in your way.
No matter where you stand in the appeals process, you are strongly encouraged to get legal help.
It’s important to work with a lawyer who practices disability in your area as they will know the local decision makers and be familiar with local resources to provide valuable help to you. If you were denied, your case isn’t over; contact us for a free evaluation.
Your hearing is often the most important stage in the process. This hearing takes place before an Administrative Law Judge and is the best chance to present your evidence in person. It’s very important that you and your evidence are fully prepared. If you’ve received a denial letter, we strongly recommend you call us for help.
Social Security sometimes brings in expert witnesses to provide testimony. Baynetta Jordan knows how to present evidence to help your chances and to cross-examine these experts, if necessary.
Social Security’s own data shows you have a higher chance of being awarded disability benefits when you have representation. Since there are no legal fees if you don’t win benefits, the decision to get legal help is an easy one.
