Denied for Disability Benefits in Michigan?
Let Our Disability Lawyers Appeal!
If you’re denied Social Security Disability benefits, don't give up! It is absolutely frustrating when you know you cannot work but the government still denies your case. The process to appeal can be long and tedious, but success is possible.
Most people who apply are initially denied. At Levine Benjamin, our Disability lawyers can help turn your denial into an approval. If you don’t win benefits, there are no attorney fees or expenses.
Important! Once you’re denied benefits, the clock starts ticking. Don’t wait too long. You can miss the deadline to appeal!
Your Disability hearing is the most critical stage in your case. Your appeals hearing before the Administrative Law Judge is your best chance to present evidence in person. It’s crucial you and the evidence be well prepared. If you have received a denial at the initial step, we strongly recommend you get legal help as soon as possible.
At Levine Benjamin, you will always meet with an attorney who can provide valuable information and advice to improve your chances of winning your appeal. One of our attorneys will also meet with you again shortly before your hearing so you are prepared for your hearing.
The attorneys at Levine Benjamin will:
- analyze your Social Security file
- prepare your case and set the strategy
- gather additional evidence from your doctors and medical providers
- make legal arguments, prepare your testimony
- question witnesses (for your side)
- cross-examine any medical and vocational experts who testify at your hearing
- appeal your case on the federal level if necessary
Social Security sometimes brings in expert medical witnesses to provide testimony. They can hurt your chances of winning benefits. We know how to counter these experts.
Most people win benefits with an experienced Disability lawyer.
According to Social Security’s own statistics, people win benefits more often when they have representation than when they don’t. Since there are no attorney fees if you don’t win benefits, the decision to get legal representation is an easy one.
The attorneys at Levine Benjamin can help you at all levels of Social Security’s appeals. If you were denied, it’s not the end, contact us to talk about your case. If you don’t win disability benefits, there’s no cost to you.
