Helping those with denied claims in Anderson

It can come as a surprise to have your claim denied. While you may have had a doctor confirm that you are disabled, most physicians can only state what activities you cannot perform, not how this affects your particular job. Lawyer Stoddard works with vocational experts to confirm that his clients' disabilities actually affect their careers, which creates a solid case during the appeal process.

In some cases, the reason for a denial is simply because the application process was not performed correctly. Not only can Attorney Stoddard provide you with the insight to apply for your Social Security Disability benefits properly, he can help you through the appeal process strongly if you've already been denied. With an extensive history of getting clients the results they want and need, you can trust David Stoddard with your case.

Attorney Stoddard is an expert with the Social Security appeals process

After an application is denied, an appeal can be filed in the next 60 days with Social Security. The David Stoddard Law Firm can help you file this request thoroughly so that Social Security can review your case and evidence. There are five stages to this process:

  • Initial reconsideration
  • Hearing
  • Review by the Appeals Council
  • Federal court review
  • Final reconsideration

Providing the necessary evidence to appeal a claim can seem like a daunting task, but Attorney Stoddard can lighten the burden with his expertise. The Social Security Administration has set specific standards for application of benefits, and the vast majority of those denied have not provided enough information to meet these detailed standards. David Stoddard will help you ensure that you've collected all the evidence needed, such as medical and financial records, as well as any proof of your disability, to confirm a successful appeal for each client he works with.

Your claim may be denied at the initial reconsideration. If this happens in your case, Lawyer Stoddard will assist you in requesting a hearing to argue the case to an administrative judge. During this process, he is prepared to fully represent you, and many cases are settled at this point. David Stoddard is the man you want to defend you in these hearings, as well as other legal practice areas. 

Fighting To Get Your Social Security Claim Satisfied

While many cases are resolved during the hearing, if your claim is still not satisfied, it may be brought to review by the Social Security Appeals Council. The Council can approve your claim, deny it, or send it back to an administrative judge for another evaluation. Once this decision is made, if you are not in favor of the council's decision, Lawyer Stoddard will help you to bring a lawsuit against Social Security in a federal court, with the same expertise and commitment to getting his clients the benefits they need.
