Nationwide Disability Attorney

Michigan Disability Attorney

When you are living with an injury or illness that prevents you from working, you rely on disability benefits as a source of income to provide for your family. You have a legal right to these benefits, and a disability attorney at Thurswell Law is prepared to help you submit your initial application as well as handle any appeals to make sure you are not wrongfully denied benefits or income.

Why Hire a Disability Attorney?

When you are already struggling financially, and you are in pain because of the very health condition that is preventing you from working, the last thing you want to think about is adding to your expenses by getting involved in a legal battle for your rights. Hiring a disability attorney, however, is the fast track to getting you the financial relief you deserve.

Your chances of being approved for disability are significantly increased when you are represented by legal counsel and here’s why:

  • A disability attorney knows how to present your case in the most favorable light, whether you are at the initial application stage or going to a hearing.
  • Your disability lawyer will offer advice about correctly identifying your alleged onset date.
  • An attorney is prepared to argue that your condition meets one of the listed impairments.
  • A disability attorney will focus on the most persuasive facts and, at reconsideration and hearings, collect and submit relevant medical evidence as well as professional opinions from your doctor.
  • Your lawyer will thoroughly prep you for a judge’s typical questions at your hearing.
  • An experienced attorney will create sophisticated legal arguments and elicit helpful testimony to strengthen your case and demonstrate your inability to work.

Is It Too Late to Hire a Disability Attorney?

It’s always a good idea to hire a lawyer sooner rather than later when it comes to filing for disability. If you chose to navigate the early stage of an initial application without legal help and you were denied, you can still hire a lawyer – in fact, you should.

An expert disability attorney is trained to evaluate the strength of your case, and they can also make inroads to moving your case more quickly through the system, particularly if you have a dire financial situation or extremely severe medical condition. In some of the more serious cases, an on-the-record (OTR) decision can be requested by your legal counsel, asking the court to approve your benefits without a hearing.

This kind of progress can occur in the best of circumstances, but most disability cases cannot be successfully expedited through the legal system. Many claimants have to wait months and even years for a resolution of their case – even with the help of a disability attorney.
