Diligent Summit Social Security Disability Lawyers Help You Get the Benefits You Need
Westfield & Summit SSD Attorneys serving clients throughout New Jersey
The Social Security disability (SSD) system is an important safety net that allows injured or disabled people to continue to live in relative comfort if they can no longer work because they are disabled. If you need help applying for these benefits, call Ventura, Miesowitz, Keough and Warner, P.C. to speak with an experienced Westfield & Summit SSD lawyer. Our team has more than 30 years of experience representing the best interests of disabled people across New Jersey, delivering the service they need when navigating the sometimes difficult process of working with the Social Security Administration (SSA).
A knowledgeable team that gives you more options
While there are many people who qualify for benefits offered by Social Security disability, the SSA actually denies a majority of applications the first time around. Even though you are reasonably certain you’re eligible for disability, you may find yourself with a denial letter. It is then up to you to engage in the appeals process, which requires the assistance of our devoted Social Security and experienced Westfield & Summit workers comp attorneys.
When you work with our firm, we walk you through all steps of the process:
- Initial applications. While you can apply for benefits on your own, it is often helpful to consult with a disability attorney to give yourself the best chance for an approval. We know the process, and we know what the SSA officials look for when reviewing an application.
- Denial and request for reconsideration. If you are initially denied, you should immediately request reconsideration by the SSA. With the aid of your Summit SSD lawyer, you can ask that officials take another look at your application, offering supplemental information and medical records if needed.
- Administrative law judge (ALJ) hearings. If you still face a denial after the initial reconsideration, the next step is to argue your case in front of an administrative law judge. This is when your SSD attorney can present additional evidence on your behalf to make the case that you are truly disabled and unable to work.
