Four Laws You Must Know When Hiring A Disability Attorney
Approximately 70% of all Social Security Disability Insurance SSDI applicants are denied on their first application.
Many of these claims are denied because the application was not completed correctly.
The application maze for Social Security Disability Insurance SSDI can make applicants feel overwhelmed, confused and frustrated.
It may be in your best interest to hire a disability attorney.
If you chose to hire a disability lawyer you need to be aware of the law that an attorney must follow:
- It is against the law for a Social Security lawyer to collect an upfront fee from you.
- A lawyer may only collect a small fee for postage and to obtain copies of your medical records.
- Your Social Security attorney fee may not exceed $6,000 or 25% of your backpay, whichever is less.
- Even if your case goes on for years your attorney will not receive payment unless you win.
