We take cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that if there is no monetary recovery, you owe us nothing for our services. In most cases, Katherman, Briggs & Greenberg will advance the expenses of the case and will wait to be reimbursed until the conclusion of the case.

There is no charge for your initial consultation with a Katherman, Briggs & Greenberg personal injury attorney. This allows you to explore your options and determine whether moving forward with your case is the best decision for you on a risk-free basis. An initial consultation is the all-important first step to getting the results you deserve.

What Should I Do If My Social Security Disability Case Is Denied?

A denied social security disability claim can be daunting. You may be relying on benefits to pay medical bills, living costs and other expenses. To suddenly face the possibility you might not get support for these needs can be distressing. Fortunately, an appeals process is available.

When dealing with a denied social security disability claim, you have time limitations. You will want to:

  • Act immediately. Never ignore letters or communications related to your social security disability claim. Open them as soon as you get them and take steps to address the issue at once. You have a 60-day window to appeal any denials, and waiting can hurt your claim. If you wait too long or try to file a new claim rather than appealing, you could lose your chance at benefits.
  • Contact a disability benefits attorney as soon as possible. A denial is a serious concern, and it deserves prompt attention. A disability claim attorney focusing on SSI and disability benefits understands the common reasons for a denial — and how to appeal a denial successfully. It can be a significant benefit to work with someone who has successfully appealed hundreds of denials, and in many cases, that means working with a disability attorney.
  • Consider why your claim was denied. An attorney can help you determine what went wrong the last time and build a strong case for an appeal. If you understand what went wrong before, you may have a better chance of winning an appeal.

Appealing a denial in a social security disability claim case is time-sensitive. The attorneys at KBG Injury Law offer quick consultations and respond to your inquiries fast — so you can get your legal issues addressed quickly.
