Why Hiring A SSD Or Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Is A Good Idea
While applying for Social Security Disability or workers’ compensation benefits can be done without a lawyer, applicants undertaking the process on their own face a complex and powerful bureaucracy. The attorneys at Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., focus solely on these types of injury claims. Combine that background with legal knowledge and fierce dedication and clients have a seasoned advocate who will remain at their side throughout the entire process.
The Insurance Carrier Has An Attorney. So Should You.
As a matter of law, the insurance carrier must have an attorney or some form of representation at a workers’ compensation or SSDI hearing. Failing to secure that help results in fines. However, claimants do not have that requirement. However, the competition they face will likely have experience handling tens of thousands of hearings on an ongoing basis. The opposition will be far more familiar with the system, statutes, rules and regulations, not to mention significant court decisions.
The attorneys at Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., can help level the playing field. In fact, the insurance company prefers that claimants have a lawyer. Without legal help, they may make exaggerated demands and pick a fight that they simply cannot win. With the other side mandated to have legal counsel, it makes little sense for claimants to go without.
