If you need a Social Security Disability Lawyer in Raleigh NC, The Bishop Law Firm can help with your case. We represent Social Security Disability clients in Raleigh and surrounding areas in North Carolina. Read on for what information we need from you to know if we can help.
When you call us, we need to know where you are in the disability process. There are several levels to a disability case: initial, reconsideration, request for hearing, the appeals council and district (federal) court. If you have received a denial from SSA, have it with you when you call us. Another easy way to know where you are in the process is to count the denials you have received since you applied (one denial means you need to request a reconsideration, two denials means that you need to request a hearing…).
Next, we need to know why you feel you are disabled. Symptoms are helpful but we really need to know what your doctors have diagnosed you with and what medications you have been prescribed. Tell us what surgeries, therapies and treatments you have tried. We do not need exact dates; just do the best you can.
There are two types of Social Security Disability Benefits. Your work history and current financial situation will determine which type of benefit you are eligible for so be prepared to answer a few of those questions as well. Other questions include: education, marital status and if you have minor children. I know this seems like a lot of information, but every question is important to your case!
Unfortunately, most people are denied when they initially apply for benefits. It helps to have an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer on your side. We are paid on a contingent fee basis which is capped by the Social Security Administration. So, if you do not win you do not have to pay us!
Even if you do not know the answers to all of the above questions and need a Social Security Disability Lawyer in Raleigh, NC, give The Bishop Law Firm a call today at (919) 615-3095. We want to help!
