Social Security Disability is intended to provide income to people who have been rendered unable to work due to injury or illness (either physical or psychological). While the system is set up to be simple enough for disabled individuals to apply for social security disability benefits on their own, the outcome is that the majority of the applications for benefits are denied by the Social Security Administration. Once you receive the first denial, we will file a “Request for Reconsideration” appeal and if that gets denied, we will then file a “Request for Hearing” appeal. The vast majority of our cases are successful following the hearing in front of an Administrative Social Security Judge. So, whether you are preparing to apply for Social Security Disability benefits, or have already been denied, the experienced lawyers at Goddard and Hammontree LLC can help you be successful in your case.
Why Good Claims are Denied
It stands to reason that a good claim should be obvious to those at the Social Security Administration, but that’s not always the case. The Social Security Administration’s early reviews of your claim often result in a denial despite your disabilities. When you submit your claim, you must explain how your disability affects your ability to work from either a physical or mental standpoint. These elements are not always clear on paper, and that is why most people fair better when their case is presented to a judge. With your application for Social Security Disability benefits, you must also submit medical proof of your disability. The Social Security system is not designed to assist you in obtaining the medical evidence you need to win in your quest for Social Security Disability benefits. However, the attorneys at Goddard and Hammontree LLC understand the system and know the proper questions to ask your physicians in order to win your case.
The lawyers at Goddard and Hammontree LLC receive 25% of your Social Security Disability “back pay” up to a maximum of $6,000.00 if they are successful, and you receive 75% of your back pay and 100% of your future monthly benefits for the remainder of your life while you are disabled. If the lawyers at Goddard and Hammontree LLC are unsuccessful in your case, you do not owe them any money for attorneys fees.
