There is no reason to take on the Social Security Administration on your own. Take advantage of your right to be represented by a Fresno SSD lawyer by contacting us today.
Accurate and complete applications supported by medical records
If you are disabled and cannot work as you once did, you may qualify for benefits through the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program. The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program may be another option for adults who do not have a sufficient work history to qualify for SSDI and for disabled or blind children.
A Fresno SSDI lawyer helps by ensuring that the information provided in your application for SSDI, or SSI is accurate and meets the program’s eligibility requirements. Medical evidence proving the existence of a medically determinable physical or mental impairment submitted in support of the application may include:
Results of diagnostic testing
Blood test and other lab results
Clinical evaluations by treating physicians
Submitting a strong, thoroughly documented application gives you the best chance of proving that you are disabled and eligible for SSDI or SSI benefits.
Taking a claim through the appeal process
When you need to challenge a denial or other adverse determination made by the SSA, a Sackett and Associates Fresno SSI lawyer handles it at all levels of the appeal process, including:
Request for reconsideration
Hearing by administrative law judge
Appeals Council review
Federal court review
Your Fresno disability lawyer has the ability to use Social Security law and regulations along with the medical evidence to present a persuasive challenge to the determination made by the SSA.
For hearings presided over by an administrative law judge, your lawyer helps you to prepare to give testimony in support of your claim by reviewing the facts of the claim and the evidence with you. The lawyer may question other witnesses, including vocational experts, depending on the issues raised in the appeal.
