Why Hire an Attorney to Represent Your Social Security Disability Claim?
If you have a Social Security disability claim, you may wonder if you can handle it on your own. Before you attempt to navigate the often murky waters of Social Security law, take a moment to read why you might want to hire an experienced attorney to help you achieve the best results possible.
Understanding Social Security Law in Georgia
Social Security law is both complex and highly regulated, and there are many rulings and regulations that someone who doesn’t regularly work with the Social Security Administration wouldn’t know. It’s important to use an experienced Social Security disability attorney in your appeal(s) and any hearing(s) where you are seeking to obtain Social Security disability benefits.
While non-attorney representatives are allowed to present Social Security cases, the maximum fees that may be charged by both attorneys and non-attorneys are the same. Furthermore, your representative can only charge a limited fee if they help you win your case (currently 25% of past-due benefits or a maximum of $6,000).
The window of opportunity to pursue your claim while insured is very small. Given the significant medical and income benefits at stake, you need an experienced Social Security disability attorney who can guide you through the litigation process and assist you in preparing and presenting your claim before the Administrative Law Judge who will ultimately rule on your claim.
