Why Do I Need A Social Security Disability Lawyer?

Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD or SSDI) insurance benefits can be complicated and overwhelming, especially for those who are dealing with a disability. It can be done on your own, but to increase your chances of being approved, it is important to know all aspects of the process and have insight from an experienced attorney.

Our legal team at Bartels Sherman & Wallace, has decades of experience handling SSD claims matters for clients in Arkansas and throughout the country. We are committed to providing the information you need in order for us to help you make an educated decision about how to proceed with your claims.

The Benefits Of Having An Attorney On Your Side

There are numerous advantages that come with enlisting a lawyer to handle your SSD case, including:

  • We make the process easier. Since our lawyers have so many years of experience, and focus on SSD cases, we know the ins and outs of the entire SSD process. This allows us to help make things go more smoothly for you, handling the legal matters when we need to and allowing you to focus on your health when needed.
  • We know what documents to gather. There are many medical documents and other materials that need to be collected in support of your disability claim. These can include doctor’s reports, medical exam notes, biopsy results, CT and MRI scan results, blood work notes, treatment plans and more. We can assist you in gathering these documents, ensuring that the documents we gather are the proper ones needed to file or appeal your claim.
  • We help when a claim is denied. Though not all benefit claims are denied, there are a large number of claims that are denied upon initial filing. All hope is not lost, however. We are able to regroup after a denial, review the reasons for denial, restructure your case and appeal the decision, if deemed appropriate in your situation.
