1. Meet with one of our renowned attorneys.
Your initial consultation with us is free and can be scheduled by calling (601) 869-0696. (You can also send us a message to tell us about your case.) Because the process of applying, reapplying, and evaluating applications tends to take time, it’s important that you get the help of an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner you get the legal help you need, the sooner you may gain access to the compensation and financial relief you need.
2. Continue treatment for your medical conditions as much as you are able.
As much as it is in your power, continue going to doctors’ appointments and undergoing treatment for the illnesses or injuries that have made your application for Social Security Disability benefits necessary. In some cases, compensation may be denied because applicants have failed to utilize curative treatments, seek medical help for debilitating conditions, or take appropriate measures to regain or maintain their overall health. Even if this is not the case, it may appear as such because of the way you complete your Social Security Disability application. This can be avoided by having an experienced legal representative, who has your best interests in mind, look over your shoulder and help you complete and submit your application.
3. Refrain from reapplying until you have consulted with an attorney.
Many people continue to submit and re-submit identical applications for disability benefits after being denied. However, Social Security Disability benefits are not awarded randomly, so reapplying without making important changes to your application will not increase your chances of being approved. In fact, in some cases, having multiple applications in play can delay benefits and result in lost back-pay if one of your applications is approved at any point.
If you have been denied the benefits you deserve, we can help you move forward and claim the benefits you deserve. Call Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. today get the skilled, knowledgeable legal representation you need in order to get the compensation you deserve.
