What Can a Disability Attorney Do for Me?, Hempstead, New York

If you want to apply for Social Security benefits, finances are probably tight, and hiring a disability attorney is likely the last thing on your mind. However, these lawyers understand such troubles and fight relentlessly to secure all the benefits for which their clients are eligible—which is often more than just disability. Below, the compassionate team at Bronnberg & Henriquez PC, serving Bayside, Garden City, and the surrounding areas, explains how a Social Security attorney will help at every stage of the application process.

3 Ways a Disability Attorney Can Help

1. Determine Eligibility

Because the application is fairly demanding, a disability attorney will ensure you meet the minimum requirements before starting the process. This will prevent you from wasting your time or energy on pursuing a dead-end. Your lawyer will also review any eligibility for other government programs, so you can ultimately secure the maximum compensation possible.

2. Gather Evidence

Seasoned lawyers know what the Social Security Administration (SSA) considers adequate proof of a disability, and they will ensure clients submit official documents that meet the SSA’s exacting standards. This might include medical records, witness statements, and expert testimony from health care professionals.

3. Prepare for the Hearing

An attorney will ensure you are prepared to answer questions the SSA is likely to ask during the disability hearing. Since it will determine the outcome of your case, it is essential to take advantage of all the resources at your disposal when preparing, which includes quality legal counsel.
