In Need of Disability Benefits? Contact Our Dubuque Social Security Disability and Veterans Disability Law Firm Today!
The disability benefits process can be complex, especially if you are in the midst of battling a debilitating illness or injury. What’s more, the Social Security Administration (SSA) and Veterans Administration (VA) often deny claims that otherwise meet the criteria due to insufficient medical evidence or incomplete documentation. If you are ready to get started on your disability claim or would like assistance refiling after a denial, our Dubuque Social Security disability law firm can help you obtain the benefits you deserve.
Dubuque Social Security Disability Lawyer Helping Clients Get Started
For many, getting started on the application is a daunting and unwelcome task replete with required paperwork and dozens of medical questions. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the application process, a lawyer can help. Your attorney can meet with you and your family to discuss your occupational limitations and the impact of your disability on your lifestyle. In some cases, a physician’s affidavit may be required from your treating physician detailing the restrictions you are facing due to your condition. You may also need documentation from your employer detailing your position and its physical or mental demands.
I Was Recently Denied. What Should I Do?
If you have already applied and received a denial of benefits, do not despair – denials are common and many denied applicants go on to win their appeal and receive their benefits. If you just recently received your first denial, you will likely need to file for reconsideration. If your reconsideration is denied, you and your Dubuque Social Security disability lawyer will appeal and request an administrative law hearing. At the hearing, you can explain to the judge the impact of your disability and how it has rendered you unable to continue working. The judge may also seek testimony from medical or occupational experts as well.
