The video gives some advice for when people should contact a disability attorney. Disability claims lawyers are most definitely necessary when an insurance company denies a claim. However, there are other times when hiring such an attorney would be a good idea as well.
There’s nothing wrong with someone consulting with an attorney when he or she first decides to apply for the benefits. In fact, that’s a perfect time to contact an attorney because the attorney can offer a great deal of insight during that time about the validity of the claim. Furthermore, an attorney can help a claim to complete an application the proper way to avoid delays in the decision-making process. Many claims receive denials because of mistakes in the paperwork. Thus, hiring an attorney can help the claimant to get funds in his or her pocket much earlier than expected.
Someone who is already in the process of requesting benefits can also benefit from contacting an attorney. The individual could ask for information that could help the person to avoid a potential denial, and the attorney can make recommendations on how the two can handle the case.
A claimant can choose to get an attorney involved during any part of the litigation process as well.
