Have you been denied Social Security benefits? Nearly two thirds of first time applicants are denied their Social Security benefits.

It isn’t just the application process that is complicated, time consuming and difficult. The appeals process is even harder to navigate successfully.  The government’s definition of “disabled” may be different from what the average person would consider disabled. That’s part of what makes getting social security disability so difficult.

There are any number of reasons why a claim might be denied: procedural mistakes, insufficient medical documentation, missing application information or the mistaken belief that you condition will improve over time. While you are dealing with your medical condition, you don’t need any additional burdens and you don’t need to go through this process alone. The help of an experienced attorney can make a big difference in the success of your application.

The Houston Lawyer Referral Service is a non-profit public service sponsored by ten local Bar Associations and we can help you find a Personal Injury Lawyer who is right for you.
