You may be surprised to hear that a vast number of people who need Social Security Disability benefits are denied the first time they apply. If you were one of the many whose claims were rejected this year, do not lose hope. We may be able to help.
The Gulf Coast law firm of Sheehan & Johnson, PLLC, assists individuals throughout Southern Mississippi to appeal denied claims for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. In fact, most clients come to us after their claim has been denied and they don't know what to do next.
You only have 60 days to file an appeal, so do not hesitate to schedule a free initial consultation with our law firm today. Missing that 60-day deadline means that you must go through the time and hassle of starting the application process all over again.
Advocating For You At Every Level Of Appeal
Our Gulfport disability appeals attorneys are here to represent you from the initial denial all the way to federal court, if your case warrants it. We handle all levels of appeal for disability benefits, including:
- Disability hearings before administrative law judges
- Appeals council reviews
- U.S. District Court judicial reviews
Often, claims are denied because the application is not filled out correctly or does not contain appropriate medical evidence of the disabling condition. In such cases, we can help you understand exactly what the Social Security Administration is looking for and how to present your evidence in an effective way. We will also speak for you at the disability hearing, defending you against any opposition you may face from the court's vocational experts and other parties.
