There are many reasons that SSDI or SSI claims are denied. Each case is different. If your claim has been denied or refused, one thing is apparent: you need professional help, and an experienced Social Security Disability attorney is best able to provide that help.
At my law firm, we represent people at all stages of SSDI and SSI claims. Unfortunately, many of my clients come to me after their own efforts have failed. I review each client’s situation and either file new applications or appeals, as appropriate, taking forceful action to help each client achieve the best possible result.
Reasons Initial Applications Are Denied
Reasons initial applications are denied can include failure to provide complete medical information, the failure of your doctors to provide records or to complete forms on your behalf, and completion of social security questionnaires in a way that is harmful to the disability claim. Problems with the medical information provided in your initial application are the most common reasons that claims are denied. If you are not seeing appropriate doctors and/or therapists for your health problems on a regular basis and telling them how severe are your symptoms and problems with functioning, there is a greater chance that you will not be found disabled. One cannot minimize one’s symptoms when speaking with health care professionals and expect to be found disabled by the government or by a long-term disability insurance carrier. I have in-depth knowledge of how medical diagnoses and treatment affect Social Security Disability claims and appeals, and I use this knowledge to achieve the best possible outcomes for my clients. I can guide you through the application and appeals process, assist you in completing forms and questionnaires that impact your case and help you understand how medical information may affect your claim. I may be able to guide you about the types of medical treatment you should be seeking and tests you should be asking your doctors to conduct in order to establish your impairments and their degree of severity.
