Should You Hire a Social Security Disability / Workers’ Compensation Attorney?
There are many issues in the law that are difficult to answer. This one is not. Yes, you should absolutely hire an attorney who is experienced in preparing a disability application and a disability case for a hearing and making sure you receive the disability and workers compensation benefits your are entitled. The reasons are simple. First, the government pays the costs of the attorney – you don’t, so there is no cost. Second – you greatly enhance your chances of success.
Unfortunately, the system is designed to discourage you from obtaining the benefits you should received. There is a lot of technical work that goes into a well prepared disability case hearing and you need an experienced attorney to fight the insurance company attorneys on a workers compensation claim. The experienced attorney knows and understands the documents and evidence that must be prepared and available in order for the claim to succeed.
