Georgia residents have disagreements with one another from time to time. While this is perfectly natural, the disagreements can have dramatic impacts on individuals when their rights are in the hands of another person who disagrees with them.
For instance, when it comes to Social Security disability benefits, an individual's right to receive benefits is typically placed in the hands of the Social Security Administration. Accordingly, if the agency disagrees with the individual as to the person's eligibility for benefits, it could mean a denial of an application for disability benefits.
Fortunately, individuals have recourse available in these instances. As previously discussed in this blog, individuals who had their benefits determination denied by the agency have the right to appeal that decision.
Our firm has helped numerous clients file appeals of adverse decisions. In cases where the agency incorrectly concluded the person did not have a disability, we have helped past clients examine the medical evidence and explain how the agency got the decision wrong in light of that evidence.
In other cases where a person has been receiving benefits but had those benefits cut off because the agency believes he or she has engaged in substantial gainful work, we work with our clients to determine whether their rights have been violated through an incorrect view of the evidence or an incorrect application of the law.
Ultimately, the bottom line is that we do everything in our power to help protect and enforce our clients' rights to disability benefits. For more information on our firm's ability to appeal an adverse decision, please visit our webpage on Social Security disability benefits.
