If you’ve been denied disability benefits, don’t panic. Call a Daytona disability attorney today to appeal your application.
Culbertson Law Group has two of the nine attorneys in Florida that are certified for Social Security Disability Law. If you applied for disability benefits and were denied, you may need a Daytona disability attorney to get you through the appeal process. Below are the four levels of appeal:
If your disability claim was denied, you can simply request an appeal online. Your claim will then be reconsidered by the state agency contracted with Social Security. A Daytona disability attorney would suggest this appeal if there is any new evidence that could help your case.
Administrative hearings are typically requested and attended by a Daytona disability attorney. They take place in front of an administrative law judge who had no part in the original determination of your case. At Culbertson Law, our experienced attorneys will attend these hearings with you to ensure the best results.
Review By Appeals Council
This third step in the appeal process is only necessary if the administrative hearing did not work in your favor. The Appeals Council has the ability to deny a request if it believes the hearing decision was based on the correct legal standards and supported by substantial evidence.
Federal Court Review
If you disagree with the Appeals Council’s decision, you’re able to file a civil suit in a federal district court. You will need the assistance of an attorney with federal court appeal experience.
For more information on the appeal or application process, contact one of our Daytona disability attorneys today. Culbertson Law Group has the experience with the Social Security Administration and we’d be happy to assist you in any way we can.
