In The Face Of Denial, Persistence Is Key

If your Social Security Disability claim has been denied, it is extremely important that you do not give up. Just because the Social Security Administration says that you are not disabled does not mean that they are right. At Cutter Hall Karlock, L.L.C., we have more than 60 years of combined experience working on Social Security Disability (SSD) claims. We provide clients throughout Central Ohio with high-quality representation as they seek the benefits they need.

You Have The Right To Appeal

In the event of a denial, we can help you file an appeal. Moreover, if your appeal is denied, you should not give up. There are additional means to pursue benefits. You can request a hearing in front of an administrative law judge (where the bulk of these cases are resolved), move your case on to an appeals council and, if necessary, try your case in federal court.

You will need to be represented by a lawyer at all levels of the appeals process, and our firm has extensive experience in every step of the proceedings. We are fully prepared to use all available resources and legal avenues to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.

How Long Does The Process Take?

An initial application for benefits is typically processed within a period of three-to-six months. If your claim has to proceed through a hearing before 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. As such, it is important to act as quickly as possible after your claim has been denied.
