Social Security Disability Appeals

Minnesota Social Security Disability Appeal Lawyers

A high percentage of Social Security Disability (SSD) applications are denied. A claim denial does not necessarily mean that you cannot obtain SSD benefits however. You have the right to appeal your case. However, Social Security law concerning eligibility for disability benefits is complex. In appealing your case on your own, you risk repeating the same mistakes that led to the denial of your initial claim. With an experienced lawyer on your side, you may be able to obtain the SSD benefits that you need.

Villaume & Schiek, P.A., has extensive experience in cases involving Social Security Disability denials and appeals. We are knowledgeable concerning the SSD law, the procedures of the Social Security Administration, and how to collect and present medical information that can support your claim.

Results-Oriented Representation in SSD Appeals

When you choose us to represent you, our goal will be to help get your claim approved as quickly and efficiently as possible. Common SSD appeals are:

A Request for Reconsideration — This is a written procedure, in which an attorney will present information that the claims analyst may have overlooked during the initial evaluation of your case, as well as new medical information that supports your claim. You have only 65 days from the date appearing on your claim denial letter in which to file a Request for Reconsideration, so contact Villaume & Schiek, P.A., as soon as possible.

Administrative Hearing and Subsequent Appeals — If the results of the Request for Reconsideration are negative, an attorney can represent you in a hearing before an administrative law judge. If necessary, a Minnesota Social Security Disability appeals attorney can file an appeal before the Appeals Council or in federal court.

As we build your case, we can provide you with pointers on how to communicate with your doctor to make sure that relevant information gets into your medical record. You can depend on Villaume & Schiek, P.A., for skillful advocacy and compassionate counsel throughout the legal process.

We accept all SSD cases on contingency. You will owe an attorney fee only if we obtain SSD benefits for you.
