Turned Down for Disability Benefits?
Social Security Disability Attorney in Savannah, Georgia
Very few people are approved for Social Security disability benefits on the first try. The Social Security Administration rejects most initial claims. Unfortunately, many applicants will give up in frustration and will not receive the benefits they are entitled to receive.
The Social Security disability claims process is very complicated. There are strict requirements to prove your impairment or illness prevents you from working. The law firm of Smart & Harris has a successful track record of gathering the medical documentation and guiding clients through the process to win their benefits.
Don't Give Up. Call Smart & Harris.
If your Social Security disability claim was denied, we offer a free case evaluation. Attorney Stephen Harris takes cases in the Savannah area and adjoining counties of Georgia and South Carolina.
Appealing Your Social Security Disability Denial
Steve Harris has practiced law since 1975 and has handled hundreds of Social Security disability income cases, also known as SSD or SSDI. He will stick with your case through as many levels as necessary to fight for your benefits.
The majority of initial claims are rejected. We examine your file for any errors or missing information, add any new information about symptoms or treatment, and resubmit it for formal reconsideration.
Sometimes that's all it takes to get approved, but the majority of reconsideration claims are also denied. The next step is a hearing before an administrative law judge. Mr. Harris gathers any new documentation of your disability, including independent medical exams (IME), and prepares you to tell your story to the judge.
We have a high success rate at the ALJ hearings. But if you are one of the few rejected applicants again, lawyer Steve Harris can take your SSD claim to the Appeals Council or beyond to federal court.
We can't do much to make a slow bureaucracy move faster, but we can help improve your chances of getting approved for the benefits you need and deserve. Call our Savannah office at (912)-201-2332, Brunswick office at (912) 262-9464 for a free consultation or contact Mr. Harris online.
