Five Tips for Winning Your Case

How do we approach cases in a way that has such an outstanding track record of success? Simple: we approach your case in a way that’s thorough, effective, and continues to push for your best interests throughout the process.

Here are just a few things we do to help you win your case:

  • Persistence is key. Just because you’ve submitted an application doesn’t mean you should forget about your claim until you hear about your result. We’ll help you regularly check on the status of your claim, which can help speed it along and get you a result faster.
  • Include medical records. The Social Security administration needs to see evidence to support your application and demonstrate your condition. We work with you to collect the best evidence and make sure it thoroughly and irrefutably proves your condition.
  • Avoid easy mistakes. We’ll work with you to make sure that you don’t make any of the simple or fairly common mistakes that lead to Social Security claims being denied. This includes everything from signing all the proper places on your paperwork to making sure you aren’t collecting income that may lead to your being disqualified.
  • Collect strong evidence. Sometimes medical records aren’t the only evidence that’s effective when applying to the SSA. Witness letters or expert testimony may also be an effective persuader when it comes to your case.
  • Ensuring accurate information. Accidentally misrepresenting information on your disability claim is an easy way to have your claim rejected by the SSA. We ensure that your application is accurate and all information is true so you don’t have to worry about being denied due to this simple and easily-overlooked reason.

If you want to give yourself the best chance at winning your Social Security Claim, be it during your initial submission or any of the appeals process steps, make sure you have a skilled attorney on your side to help you.
