Applying for Social Security disability benefits with or without an attorney advocating on your behalf can be a difficult and lengthy process. It puts an extreme strain on an applicant and the applicant’s family. Making things only worse is the high chance of being denied. Statistically, approximately 70% of all SSDI and SSI claims are denied at the initial application stage. Approximately 88% continue to be denied at the Reconsideration level, which is the first level of appeal.
If you have a disability claim and would like a free case evaluation, please contact Pensacola Attorney Nick A. Ortiz at (850) 308-7833.
