When You Should Consult With A Disability Lawyer

If you have met all the criteria, you can apply for Social Security disability benefits in the event you become physically or mentally unable to work. If you are in this unfortunate position, now is the time to talk to a Social Security disability lawyer in Kansas City. Disability lawyers are happy to provide you with a no cost opportunity to discuss your situation, during this initial discussion you can determine what benefits there are of being represented and what the legal fees are.

The legal fees are straight forward as they are set by law. The fee is either 25 percent of the past due benefits the lawyer wins on your behalf or $6,000; whichever is less. As the lawyer is obliged to work on a contingency basis, you have nothing to pay up front, the fee is taken out of your initial award and in the event the case fails, you pay nothing to your lawyer.

What are the benefits of hiring a disability lawyer?

There are a number of benefits to having legal representation; perhaps the most important is the fact that your chances of getting approved for benefits are far better than if you were to go it alone. There is no denying that unrepresented applicants do win, but; all else being equal, the chances of being approved are better when you have a Social Security disability lawyer in Kansas City by your side.

The greatest success of having your denial of benefits overturned is when the case reaches an Administrative Law Judge. It is here where you and your lawyer can argue your case. Your lawyer will have by now reviewed all your medical records and reports, ensured they are complete and submitted them to the court. If it was felt necessary, your lawyer will get a statement from your physician to support your claim and have you well prepared to answer any and all questions that the judge can be expected to ask.

An experienced Social Security disability lawyer in Kansas City can help you get approval for disability benefits if your initial application was denied. You are invited to discuss your claim with the Grundy Disability Group, LLC.
