There are many reasons to hire a disability lawyer in Massachusetts, but it still may be something you have questions about before you make a decision. And this is good; you should never hire a lawyer without knowing exactly what he or she can do for you, and whether you need a lawyer at all.
You probably need a lawyer if:
- You have tried to apply and find the process overwhelming and confusing.
- You are simply too disabled to do the work of applying.
- You cannot locate all the information required by the Social Security Administration (SSA) disability program.
- You have applied and been denied.
- You need help preparing for a court proceeding.
What does hiring a disability lawyer cost?
If you make the decision to hire a lawyer to represent you at any stage of the SSA disability process, you should know how that lawyer is paid. First and foremost, you do not pay the lawyer any fees that are not part of your settlement. Federal law regulates this.
You only pay if the lawyer succeeds in getting your benefits for you. A common arrangement is to pay the lawyer 25% of back payments owed to you, with a cap of $6,000. The SSA pays the lawyer directly, so you never have to write a single check, unless some fees are charged for expenses, like the cost of getting medical records.
The best disability lawyer should offer experience, personal attention and a good working relationship. If you decide that you would like an experienced New England disability legal team to help you with your SSA disability claim, you can be sure that Keefe Disability Law will take your case seriously and personally.
