Have you wondered why some people get their Social Security Disability claims approved and others receive a denial? Watch a knowledgeable Massachusetts disability lawyer in this video to find out why some people are denied benefits.

Did you know that about two-thirds of the applicants who apply for Social Security Disability or SSI get denied? The reason for this varies quite a bit, but typically it is caused by not showing enough medical evidence. Even if a person has an illness that limits them and prevents them from working, if they have no proof of medical treatments, Social Security will not be able to approve benefits. Some people do not get treated because they don't have health insurance or they are afraid of going to a doctor. Do yourself a favor and seek medical treatment so that you do not get denied disability benefits.

If you do get your Social Security Disability claim denied, you can appeal it. Please call a skilled Massachusetts disability lawyer at Keefe Disability Law at 888-904-6847 to schedule a free legal consultation today. You can also view our website to read more about the appeal process.
