Appealing a Denied Social Security Disability Claim with an Attorney in California
The news that the Social Security Administration denied your disability claim can be devastating, particularly when it took Social Security so long to make the decision. However, the fact that they denied your initial claim does not necessarily mean you are not eligible for disability benefits. In fact, there is a clearly defined process of appeals that Social Security uses to prevent deserving applicants from rejection.
While the Social Security Administration may have your best interests at heart, the application process is rigorous, and your diligence affects the status of your application. It will be in your best interests to collaborate with a lawyer as you appeal the SSA’s decision to deny your claim. At LS Disability, our legal team can take the necessary legal steps to help you fight for any disability benefits you are eligible to claim.

- Reconsideration of your claim
- A hearing with an administrative law judge

- Federal Court review
