You Have the Right to Appeal
If your social security disability claim has been denied, we can help you file an appeal. Even if your appeal is denied, you should not give up. In most cases, we will file another appeal on your behalf and ask for a hearing in front of an administrative law judge, which is where the bulk of these cases are resolved.
If your disability claim appeal is denied at the administrative level, your case will move on to the Appeals Council and then, if necessary, to federal court. You will need to be represented by a lawyer at all levels of the appeals process. We have experience taking cases all the way to federal court. We are fully prepared to use all available resources and legal avenues to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
How Long Will This Process Take?
From the initial application for an appeal to appearing in front of an administrative law judge, this process can take up to two and a half years. It can take up to four years if your case requires going to federal court, making it important to act as quickly as possible after your claim has been denied. When you are unable to work and facing expensive medical care this process can seem like an eternity.
