Appealing A Denied SSD Claim

The unfortunate reality is that the majority of all Social Security Disability (SSD) claims are denied. Even if you have a mental or physical condition that makes it impossible for you to get out of bed in the morning, it's still likely that the Social Security Administration will refuse to grant you benefits the first time you ask.

However, we have some good news for you. At Cannon Law Offices, PLLC, in Greenville, we have successfully helped numerous people like you appeal denied SSD claims in eastern North Carolina. This means that even if you already sent in an application and had it rejected, we may be able to help. Filing an appeal gives you another chance to get the benefits you need — and having a skilled attorney on your side can make a significant difference.

We Can Prepare You For The Disability Hearing

There are several levels of appeal. One of the most important is the hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ). This hearing is a chance for you to present your case before the ALJ and try to convince him or her that you deserve benefits. It is also a chance for the ALJ to ask you questions. Sometimes vocational experts and medical experts will also be present to try to prove you are not really as disabled as you claim to be.

You may feel nervous about facing a judge and expert witnesses, but that is where our lawyer comes in. Attorney Richard L. Cannon III has more than 31 years of legal experience, which means he knows exactly what to do, what to say and what not to say at these hearings. He will personally prepare you and represent you. You won't have to do it alone.

Don't Wait To Appeal Your Denied Claim

You only have a limited time to file an appeal after your initial claim is denied, so don't wait.
