Downright depressing.

It takes a very long time to get a hearing if you are denied benefits at the first two levels. It takes another 16 to 18 months to get a hearing, and over one year to hear from the Appeals Council if you lose at the hearing. I do not understand how people do it.

How Not to Be Afraid of Using a Lawyer

Using a lawyer can be frightening.

Most people will possibly use a lawyer once or twice in their lifetime.

There are many misconceptions about lawyers.

Such as they are too expensive for the typical person.

They are mean.

You can do it on your own.

In work injury, personal injury and Social Security Disability cases a lawyer only gets paid if you win.

There are no hourly fees and no upfront fees.

The lawyer gets paid a percentage of the award at the end of the case.

Your lawyer works in partnership with you to present your best case and win as much money as is allowed pursuant to the law.

The lawyer wants to win for you so there is no reason to be afraid.

The other side, the insurance company, has a number of lawyers helping it and giving it advice to protect its interests. So should you.

A lawyer has a large amount of experience in dealing with insurance companies, judges and other lawyers.

The lawyer knows what to expect and what you need to prove to win your case.

Make sure that you get an experienced lawyer on your side.
