Disability Lawyer explaining the disability determination process.
Southlake Texas Personal Injury Law Firm Redding Fitzpatrick, LLP handles disability claims throughout Texas and surrounding states.
Attorney Robert Fitzpatrick describes the process:
First, you apply. Then you’re file is sent to the state agency and will be reviewed by social security doctors. Statistically the will find you not disabled.
Second, you appeal the decision. A new set of disability doctors will evaluate your claim. Again, usually a denial.
Third, we file a request for hearing and will get your case ready to be heard by a social security judge.
The process usually takes over 2 years. It is important to work with an attorney because it is difficulty to get everything social security requires and to know the laws and what we have to prove to be found disabled.
