Do I Need a Lawyer for My Disability Case?

By Douglas I. Friedman of Friedman Law Firm, P.C.

The disability claims process for VA and Social Security is supposed to be easy enough for most people to figure out themselved. And, to be sure, you can file an application pretty easily on your own. But, the questions is: What should you write in your application? What should you submit to the government to support your claim? What, what, what?

Unfortunately, the claims process often has hidden problems that may affect your case if not stated precisely or supported properly. We know this from our experience working with VA and Social Security. Sometimes, just not using the right words can have an unintended effect on your case. It’s just the way it is — certain words mean certain things to the government — that they may not mean to you.
