When Your SSD Claim Is Denied, Turn To An Experienced Fresno Attorney
It is an unfortunate reality that the majority of applications for Social Security Disability benefits are initially denied. If you filed a claim for benefits because you cannot work, whether due to injury or disability, and it was denied, you want to talk with a lawyer who has a full understanding of the Social Security system, as well as the laws and procedures governing payment of benefits.
At the Law Offices of Gary J. Hill in Fresno, California, we have protected the rights of people throughout the Central Valley for more than 35 years, including people seeking to appeal the denial of a disability claim. We have a professional and experienced support staff as well, and we will always work diligently to ensure a successful outcome in your case.
Helping You Appeal A Denied Disability Claim
When applying for disability benefits, you can work directly with someone at the Social Security office, or you can file your claim online. Nonetheless, we believe it is important to talk with us before you file your claim, so we can give you some pointers on how to improve your chances of success.
If your disability claim has been denied, your first avenue of appeal is to request a reconsideration of the determination. If your claim is denied after your request for reconsideration, an attorney can vigorously advocate for you in the administrative hearings stage of the appeals process.
