Indisputably, the social security administration allows to some extent representation of a lawyer in matters relating to claims of social security benefits as well as in the proceedings (appeal) held within the system.
In all instances, a claimant will usually wonder about the value of seeking refuge from a disability attorney in their respective benefits claims.
In consonance to that, a question that is worth to ask, that is, does social security attorney a resource or a drawback in reference to the claimant’s interest.
For practicality and convenience purposes, to my mind, a social security attorney is a resource, an asset to a claimant. This statement may be a general one but it is true and accurate.
Getting an experienced social security lawyer to help you with your claim does not only provide you convenience, but also it would guide your claim into the best lights and that great possibility of allowance of your claim is expected.
Many innocent claimants have these bad thoughts about the value of social security attorney in their claims.
Mostly, claimants are afraid with the constitutive fees that they might pay an attorney. These were all a bad impression considering the fact that the fees are on contingency basis and the fee schedule pre-approved by the social security administration.
Fairly, there are no good reasons for not utilizing the services of a social security attorney.
Social security attorneys are your resource of the following:
1. Has knowledge with how the social security disability system operates.
2. Analyze your case and coordinate with the doctor so that reports are formulated according to the regulations.
3. The attorney will also gather all of your medical records and other evidence in your behalf.
4. Gather and obtain documents from your social security file.
5. Consciously review actions and findings by the social security administration in regards to your claims.
6. The representative attorney would request for compulsory processes, subpoena material witnesses or documents in your hearings with the SSA.
7. Protect your rights to an impartial hearing and make necessary legal objections to irrelevant evidence and improper procedure.
8. Review, argue, suggest and renders written opinion and pleadings pertinent to your claims.
9. The representative attorney would make accurate calculations of your benefits.
10. Additionally, they can attempt to have your hearing request expedited, in exceptional cases.
With these, no wonder, that a social security attorney is not a drawback, but indeed, a resource for all the claimants of social security benefits.
