Legal Help for Social Security Disability Claims in Michigan
If you are disabled and can't work, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. How do you know if you qualify?

How can you improve your chances of winning your claim?
If you are enduring a severe illness or injury, the last thing on your mind is grappling with the Social Security Administration over the payment of your benefits.

Filing Your Initial Application
If you are ready to file your first application, you will need to gather plentiful medical evidence to support your claim. The Social Security Administration will only award benefits if it is clear that you are unable to continue in your current job position directly due to your illness or injury. Your treating physician may submit an affidavit detailing the extent of your limitations, but the SSA will use this as circumstantial evidence only. However, the longer your physician has been working with you and the more involved he is with your medical treatment, the more weight the SSA will give your doctor's opinion.
Facing a Denial
Receiving a denial of benefits is extremely frustrating. However, we encourage you not to give up. If you recently received a denial of benefits letter, one of our attorneys at Gordon & Pont can help you refile your claim within the appropriate deadline and with the necessary paperwork. Many times, an appeal is due within 30 days of your receipt of the denial letter, so do not delay in contacting us as quickly as possible.
The disability laws are complex, and you should not navigate the process alone. By calling a reputable disability attorney like Lloyd Pont, you can rest assured that your claim will be handled with accuracy and attention to detail.
