Charlotte Social Security Disability Attorney
If you live with a physical or mental disability, you don’t need us to tell you how difficult that can make life. On top of what you already deal with, trying to get your disability benefits written, filed, and approved without legal help can seem like a perplexing maze with no easy solution. Nationwide, and in the Charlotte area, disability court judges at the hearing level are approving fewer and fewer disability cases, which adds an extra level of uncertainty to the process. Our firm has seen this first-hand, and our attorneys put their experience to use to help clients like you get the social security help they need.
The goal of our Social Security lawyers is to make your life easier so you can successfully get the disability benefits to which you are entitled. Our firm has helped many people who have been turned down at the initial and reconsideration levels, and because of our success we are now expanding into Charlotte, North Carolina. Our attorneys are excited to start serving people in the Charleston ara and look forward to helping you win your disability claim or appeal.
We Help You Win Your Charlotte Social Security Disability Case By:
- Comprehensively analyzing your medical history and case
- Collecting your medical records and tests such as MRIs, X-rays, and EMGs that show the impact of your disability on your everyday life
- Gathering written opinions from doctors and other key sources for the SSD judge to review
- Looking for possible legal errors that a judge may have made, if your case was denied at the hearing level
- Accurately completing the paperwork and meeting all deadlines
- Appealing your denied Social Security case to the Appeals Council level or Federal District Court level, if needed
- Filing an additional disability claim if needed
How We Successfully File Your SSD Claim
Our Social Security disability attorneys at McChesney & McChesney will help you file your disability claim so that you have the best chance of success. Since many cases are denied on the first attempt, we also write up your case specifically so that it is more likely to be reversed if an appeal is necessary. With good legal representation, your case can be easily appealed with well-documented proof – and SSD judges know that. Our lawyers will provide the necessary proof and be your advocates at every stage of your disability claim.
For the best possible outcome in your Social Security disability claim, give us a call to discuss your case before filing. Losing your case because of a technicality or because you didn’t file the paperwork correctly delays the process and adds financial and emotional burdens to your life. You can, however, start the process on your own by filing a claim at the Social Security Administration office at 2201 Coronation Boulevard in Suite 100.
