Disability Claim Denied

Central Ohio Social Security Disability Appeal Lawyer


If your Social Security claim has been denied, you are not alone.
According to a study conducted by the National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representatives, more than 65 percent of claims are denied by the Social Security Administration.

Fortunately, a denied disability claim is not the end of the process. This is where the real work begins for an experienced lawyer. At the law firm of Kennedy & Colasurd, a Legal Professional Association, in Columbus, Ohio, we have more than 25 years of experience overcoming denied claims. We can help you.


Why Was Your Social Security Disability Claim Denied?


Your denial letter probably provides very little explanation as to why your claim was denied. More or less, it probably says you do not meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of disability. It is possible that they have made an oversight, or there is medical documentation missing from your application. You may also need stronger medical evidence. Do not simply accept no for an answer. Let us review your case for free and help you take the next step.


Requests for Reconsideration


You have the right to Request Reconsideration. We will help you prepare the additional documentation required for this step, documentation that helps you present a clear picture to the Social Security Administration that you are entitled to benefits.


Social Security Appeals Hearings


If your Request for Reconsideration also results in a denial, which is often the case, the next step is requesting a hearing. We will make the request and prepare you for the hearing. Many times, Social Security has a medical advisor and a vocational expert appear to testify. We will educate you about the roles you, your attorney, the judge, the medical advisor and the vocational expert will play in the hearing. We will let you know the questions you will have to answer. We will be prepared to cross examine to bring out all the favorable testimonies to support your case. You will be confident and ready when you walk into the hearing with us at your side.


Appeals Council Reviews


Even after the hearing, there are additional steps that can be taken, including a review by the Appeals Council. We will guide you through these steps if necessary.
