Key Questions to Ask your Disability Lawyer
Posted in: Disability Lawyer on March 1st, 2013

disability lawyerWork or life accidents can blindside a family, leaving you or a love one incapacitated to participate in any productive activity. Since a high percentage of preliminary applications for Social Security disability benefits are denied, hiring a disability lawyer to best present your case increases you chances for success. To qualify for disability benefits, an individual must be found to have a physical or mental condition that prevents gainful activity or can cause death. The Social Security Administration has its own panel of medical experts to make the analysis, and a disability lawyer who knows the system can accurately and fairly represent your case.

Qualities To Look For

When speaking with a disability lawyer, you’ll want to ask if he or she has represented cases similar to yours before and what the outcome was. After all, you’ll want an experienced lawyer to help you deal with your social security disability claim. Other topics to discuss include:

  • How much will I receive? In 2010, the national monthly average was $1,064. While disability benefits are distributed on a case-by-case basis, a disability lawyer should be able to give you a general idea of what to expect.
  • What information do I need to apply? In order to prove disability to receive disability benefits, medical records from doctors, hospitals, caseworkers, and any applicable sources will be needed. Other basic forms such as a birth certificate or W-2 form may be required. The more information you can provide a disability lawyer, the better they can represent your case.
  • What is the expected time frame? Disability benefits can take months or even years to be approved. Staying in consistent communication with your disability lawyer will ensure that everyone is on the same page and has the same expectations.
