If you are unable to work because of a mental or physical disability, you may be eligible to receive benefits from the Social Security Disability (SSDI) system. Benefits can be substantial and can make a large difference in your standard of living. However, working with the Social Security system is challenging for people who try to apply for benefits on their own. It is an unfortunate fact that most people who apply for SSDI benefits for the first time are denied. That is where we come in. We help people get the SSDI benefits that they need and deserve.
If you or a loved one have had your SSDI application for benefits denied, you have a right to appeal. That is an important right, and it is very worthwhile to pursue it. Many people who have been denied the first time they apply will be awarded benefits after they appeal.
You can increase your chances of a successful appeal by working with an experienced Social Security lawyer. At Peterson & Calunas Disability Law, we care about every client and fight aggressively to get them all the benefits they are legally entitled to.
We have the knowledge and experience to successfully navigate the complex Social Security system. We will work closely with you, walking you through the process, answering all your questions, and notifying you promptly of any important developments. We will gather all the information and evidence that is necessary to present your case in a thorough and persuasive way. We prepare the necessary written materials, and we will argue your case in front of Social Security’s administrative law judge.
If your SSDI benefits have been denied, it is important that you get started on your appeal right away, as there is only a limited time period when you are allowed to appeal. If you are in the greater Detroit area, contact us immediately at Peterson & Calunas Disability Law to set up a free consultation.
