The biggest mistake that you can make is that if you get denied, you do not file your appeal or you do not file it in a timely fashion. You only have 60 days once you are denied to file your appeal. Some people just get disappointed and think: “Oh, what’s the use” and do not even file an appeal.
What you should do is consult an attorney to see what chance you have of moving forward in the process because many, many times people appeal their case and end up winning. Social Security denies deserving people. Believe it, it happens all the time!
2. Not Treating with a Doctor for Your Disability on a Regular Basis.
The other thing that people do that is a critical mistake is they do not get a doctor to follow up their care. There is just about no way you are going to be found disabled in front of Social Security unless you have a good doctor following your injury or illness that causes your disability and inability to work. I tell people, a good doctor is more helpful than a good attorney in a Social Security case, because an attorney cannot make up evidence. I cannot create what your injury is, explain about it, and tell how it restricts you. Your doctor must do that. So, if you have a good doctor, stick with them and follow what they say.
3. Not Hiring an Experienced Social Security Disability Lawyer To Guide You.
The third mistake is, once you get denied, do not do this alone. Social Security is a bureaucracy. There are a lot of tricks, traps and things that can go wrong. You may make a critical mistake without even knowing it. Hire yourself a good Social Security Disability attorney that can guide you and properly prepare your claim. If you do those three things, you may find out that even though you were denied, down the road you are found disabled and you are getting your Social Security benefit.
