Why You Need an Experienced Alabama Social Security Disability Lawyer

Why You Need an Experienced Alabama Social Security Disability Lawyer

Many people believe that they do not need the services of an experienced Alabama Social Security Disability lawyer.  They believe that their condition is obviously disabling and that the Social Security Administration will agree and award them disability benefits as soon as the Social Security Administration’s office personnel order and read your medical records, but this rarely occurs.  Today we are posting our second blog on why you need to hire an experienced Alabama Disability Attorney to help you in your claim for disability benefits.

Next, Dealing with the Consultative Physician.  A consultative physician is the doctor the Social Security Administration sends a person trying to obtain Social Security Disability benefits to see when Social Security believes that they need additional evidence in order to determine the extent of the claimant’s disability.  These examinations are generally very superficial, as the doctors paid by the Social Security Administration are not paid much and have time constraints on how long they have to produce a report on your condition.  In the Monday, November 21, 2011 edition of the Wall Street Journal, it was reported that the Social Security Administration was cutting the fees paid to consultative physicians and was forcing physicians to give opinions in fields outside their expertise.  Such evidence, it not properly objected to, might be sufficient to support an Administrative Law Judge rejecting your appeal for disability benefits.

To ensure that unqualified evidence is kept out of evidence and properly objected to, as well as helping to ensure that your physician’s opinions are afford the significant weight they are entitled to, you need an experienced Alabama Social Security Disability Lawyer.  The Alabama Social Security Lawyers at Powell and Denny have 56 years of combined experience in handling Social Security Disability claims, and we would like to put our knowledge at work for you.  If you live in Alabama and have been denied Social Security Disability benefits but believe that you are disabled, don’t give up; contact and speak with one of the experienced Alabama Social Security Disability lawyers at Powell and Denny today for a free consultation.  Virtual appointments are available via Zoom to better protect you from the coronavirus pandemic.
