We help you file your application for benefits and fill out confusing disability forms. You can file online at ssa.gov. In addition, proving disability to the judge is our speciality. In the past 30 years, our attorneys have won thousands of cases at the hearing level. We also win cases at the Appeals Council and in Federal District Court. We work with our clients as part of a team effort. Therefore, we are successful. Look at our record, we have won over 20,000 Social Security Disability and SSI cases. Better yet, we have won over $100 million in past-due benefits for our clients.
SSD ATTORNEYS ARE EXPERTS AT DISABILITY LAW
We also know how to win disability cases. For example, we know how important it is to get medical records. We explain all of the information you need to submit to win your case. Above all, it is important to have the support of your doctor. You are encouraged to have a good relationship with your doctor and ask for help in your case. If you don’t have a doctor, we will do our best to help you find a free or low-cost health clinic. You will need to prove that you are disabled. And for that, you need medical records and a statement about disability from your doctor.
You do not want to leave winning your disability claim to chance. Your future income and your ability to support yourself and your family is at stake. We are also members of NOSSCR, which is a national organization of attorneys and representatives. NOSSCR dedicates itself to assisting disability claimant’s and their representatives during the disability process. We attend NOSSCR conferences every year to make sure we are up to date on the law that effects your claim.
Additionally, your ability to receive Medicaid and Medicare depends upon whether or not you are successful with your disability claim. Even your future retirement benefits are at risk if you do not win benefits. You also need to be able to hire an attorney without worrying about whether or not you can pay the attorney fee. At Cannon Disability Law, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means if you do not win benefits, you do not owe an attorney fee. Therefore, hiring us to represent you creates no financial risk for you. Again, you only pay an attorney fee if we win your case.
MEDICAL RECORDS AND COSTS IN YOUR DISABILITY CASE
Please note, we will do everything in our power to collect your medical records at no or low cost. If you become our client, we do charge a flat office fee to cover the office supplies and expenses that we incur during the time we represent you. For example, this fee covers the charge of mailing or sending medical records through the mail. It also covers long-distance phone calls, faxing letters, making photocopies, and preparing and storing your disability file. Our fee for these office services is usually under $100, even if your case takes more than two years to complete.
SSD ATTORNEY FEES
If you worry about the cost of hiring our firm, don’t. We work on a contingency basis. This means that we only charge an attorney fee if we win your disability case. If we do not win your case, you will not owe any attorney fee. You will still have to pay the costs of your claim. You must pay the costs if you win or lose your case. However, as noted above, our costs are low.
SSD attorney fees are set by law at 25% of your back benefit, with a “cap” or limit of $6000, whichever is less. This means that even if we win your case at a hearing, we cannot charge more than $6000 in attorney fees. Normally, our fee is less than the $6000 cap. For example, if your back benefit is $10,000, our attorney fee would be $2500, which is 25% of your back benefit.
SSD ATTORNEYS AT CANNON DISABILITY LAW MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
Additionally, if you are not able to collect your own medical records and your doctor charges a fee to collect those records, you will have to pay that medical record bill. Most doctors are willing to provide you with your own medical records at no cost. However, if we have to collect the record for you, then there may be a fee. The doctor’s fee is your responsibility, whether we win or loss the case.
