Fort Lauderdale Social Security Disability Lawyer

Working with an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer can help ensure you successful navigating what can be the arduous and frustrating process of applying for Social Security Disability benefits. At Disability Advocates, our team of experienced SSD attorneys will immediately begin assessing the strength of your disability claim right from your initial consultation. To be eligible, you must have a medical condition lasting at least one year or one that is terminal and a recent work history covered by Social Security.

We will provide key guidance even before we initiate the application process. This means assisting you in gathering the requisite medical records, work history, and other relevant documents. Furthermore, our attorneys will assist in gathering vital medical evidence, securing statements from treating physicians, and arranging additional evaluations as needed.

While individuals can apply for SSD benefits independently, having our attorneys guide you helps ensure accuracy and completeness. Applications can be submitted online by phone, or in-person at a local Social Security office. Also, should your application be initially denied, as many are, our attorneys will guide you through the appeals process, including reconsideration, administrative law judge hearings, Appeals Council review, and federal court review.

Some may understandably get overwhelmed at the prospect of appearing before an administrative law judge and, should your case progress to an administrative law judge hearing, our team will thoroughly prepare you for this. We will also work to gather additional evidence and represent you during the hearing.

Throughout the process, we will handle all communication with the SSA on your behalf, ensuring timely responses, providing additional documentation, and updating information as necessary. Upon approval of benefits, our attorneys can provide guidance on managing and maintaining benefits, including rules about working while receiving benefits and reporting changes in income or medical condition. We will also explore potential state supplementary assistance programs that may offer additional benefits beyond federal SSD.
