An Assertive Advocate For Your SSDI Benefits Appeal

A denied claim for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits is not the end of the road — not by a long shot. In fact, the Social Security Administration (SSA) reports that more than half of first-time claims are denied. It's not that the government doesn't want to provide benefits to qualified applicants; many of the applications simply do not have the necessary medical information to be approved.

At the Law Office of April Perry Randle, PLLC, in Cleveland, Tennessee, we help injured individuals appeal denied claims and recover the disability benefits they deserve.

If your initial application is rejected, you have 60 days to appeal. At that point, it is wise to hire a lawyer like April Perry Randle, who can help you gather the medical evidence you need to submit and, if necessary, represent you at a hearing before an administrative law judge.

Do Not File A New Claim

Many people make the mistake of submitting a new application if their initial claim is denied. Unfortunately, the chances are high that application will be denied as well. The smarter move is to hire an attorney and file for reconsideration from the SSA.

An even higher percentage of claims at the reconsideration stage are denied. The next step is to argue your case before an administrative law judge at an appeal hearing. Our experience provides us with valuable insights on what medical evidence and doctor statements to present at a hearing.

Appealing a denied claim is a complex process, one that can take well over a year to complete. By working with Ms. Perry Randle, you will be assured you are taking the right steps at every stage, and that you will be updated on the status of your case throughout the process.
