When you become a client of Cannon Disability Law, our lawyers help you every step of the way. Filing your application for Social Security Disability and/or Supplemental Security Income or appealing your case in Federal Court, that is what we do. We will assist you in completing the necessary applications, questionnaires, and appeals, and make sure that each document meets our strict standards. We will request your medical records from your past and present doctors and follow up on your application and documentation to make sure the SSA is giving your application the attention it deserves.
There is no charge for us to evaluate your case over the phone or to visit our offices. If you decide to visit our office, we appreciate you making an appointment first. When you call us, a paralegal will ask you basic questions about your case and tell you whether we can help you or set up an appointment for you with a lawyer or new client specialist. There is no charge for meeting with us and there is no obligation to become our client simply because you meet with us or ask us questions.
You will not owe an attorney fee unless our firm wins your case. Payment for medical records is your responsibility. Fortunately, the average cost of obtaining medical records on a case ranges between $50 and $150, depending on how many physicians you treat you. You will need to pay your treating physician for a copy of your medical records.
Our success record speaks for itself.
At Cannon Disability Law, we have won over 17,000 disability cases. Some attorneys claim they have a very high success rate, but that success rate is usually based on winning a few hundred cases that are carefully selected based on the client’s advanced age or severe disability. We take cases we believe in and that includes young people, people with a combination of impairments, including mental and physical illness.
Our clients tell us they can’t work and we believe them. While we don’t win every case, we care more about our clients than having a perfect success rate. We are in the business of helping disabled people from the outset of their disability claim. Therefore, we help our clients with their application and we help them fill out the government’s paperwork. Obtaining the medical evidence you need to win your case is what we do.
We only charge an attorney fee when we win your case.
This is called a contingency fee. When we win your disability case at the lower appeals levels or at the hearing level, we charge you an attorney fee equal to 25% of your back due benefits. However, the attorney fee is capped at a maximum amount of $6,000. For example, if you win $10,000 in back benefits, we will charge you $2,500, which is 25 percent of your back benefit. If you win $100,000 in back benefits, our firm will charge only $6,000. In the future, if the government raises the amount of the fee cap, then our attorney fee cap will increase to that level.
In addition to paying the attorney fee, you will need to pay the costs of your case. But those costs are usually minimal and typically consist of a low fee for office expenses and, if necessary, obtaining your medical records. Our office accepts credit cards to pay the doctor who provides your medical records or you can pay for and collect your medical records from your doctor and deliver them to us. Medical evidence and the support of your treating doctor is crucial to winning your case.
We will let you know if we need your help getting medical records, so you are not charged unnecessary medical record request fees. When you choose our firm we are on your team, and your case is presented in the strongest manner possible. Social Security Disability benefits are not a handout, they are an entitlement. Every time you earned a paycheck, the government put aside a portion of your paycheck for you in case you became disabled and could not longer work. You deserve the best representation to obtain the benefits that belong to you and Cannon Disability Law offers all of our clients our very best, every step of the way.
