Assisting with Social Security disability hearings in Alabama
Getting the disability benefits you are entitled to can be a difficult process. Applications are frequently denied, even if you are truly disabled. If your application is denied, you can — and usually should — appeal. But even if you appeal, it is common to be denied benefits at first because your application is reviewed internally by Social Security examiners. Although this may seem frustrating and overwhelming, it does not have to be. At Byron A. Lassiter & Associates, P.C., we are dedicated to guiding you through the appeals process, including SSDI hearings in Alabama. By taking over the legal aspects of your disability claim, we strive to make the process easier on you so you can focus on your life and family. As a certified specialist in Social Security disability with more than 30 years of experience, Byron A. Lassiter fully understands the system and how to efficiently and effectively obtain the disability benefits that are rightfully yours.
Administrative hearings to appeal your denial of disability benefits
If you are denied Social Security disability benefits, you must file an appeal in writing within 60 days from the date you receive the notice of denial. Once the Social Security Administration (SSA) gets your appeal, they schedule a Reconsideration, which is a review of your application by another one of their examiners. If your application is still denied, then we can help you request an SSDI hearing in Alabama in front of an administrative law judge. The administrative hearing is one of the most important levels of appeal through the SSA. It is basically a mini-trial and the first chance you have to really present your case to a judge. As a local firm that specializes in Social Security disability appeals, including Social Security disability hearings, in Alabama, we understand what judges are looking for and how to best present your case. We help you obtain the necessary evidence, including medical evidence such as your treatment information and diagnosis by a doctor. We also help prepare witness testimony, including the testimony of medical and employment experts.
