Statistics show that those who hire a disability lawyer are more likely to be approved for benefits. In fact, according to a recent study, 60 percent of those who did hire a disability attorney were ultimately approved for benefits, but just 34 percent of those who did not hire an attorney were ultimately approved.
That’s a significant difference.
Social Security disability benefits can make living with a disabling condition much less stressful.

What can a disability lawyer actually do?
You’re not required to hire an attorney to represent you in seeking disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Applying for disability benefits or appealing a denial can be extremely complicated, stressful and time-consuming.
A Riddle & Brantley disability lawyer can manage all aspects of the claims process from beginning to end, including but not limited to:
- Helping you complete the Initial Application for Social Security disability benefits
- Coordinating the collection of medical records, evaluation forms and letters from your doctors and other health providers
- Helping you manage communications and respond to requests from the Social Security Administration
- Filing a Request for Reconsideration if your initial disability claim is denied
- Requesting a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”)
- Arguing your case in front of the ALJ at your hearing
- Cross-examining witnesses at your hearing
- Ensuring that you receive a second opinion from a qualified, unbiased doctor
- Appealing your case before the Appeals Council if the ALJ denies your disability claim
- Filing a lawsuit in federal court if necessary to pursue your right to benefits
- And much, much more…
You don’t have to go through this alone, and if you decide to hire a Riddle & Brantley disability lawyer, we’ll be with you every step of the way.

Do I qualify for Social Security disability payments?
Applying for Social Security disability can be complicated, and there are no guarantees. A disability lawyer with experience in Mint Hill and greater Charlotte can help.
A disability attorney can walk you through the process the SSA uses to determine eligibility, including these 5 important questions:
- Are you currently earning an income? The SSA considers whether or not you are currently working. In order to qualify for disability, you must be earning less than $1,260 in wages per month.
- What is the extent of your disability? In order to qualify for disability, you must be able to demonstrate that your condition significantly interferes with your ability to work.
- Is your disability on the “Blue Book” list of qualifying impairments? The SSA has a list — often called the “Blue Book” — of conditions that automatically qualify an individual for disability, provided he or she meets certain other eligibility criteria.
- Can you do work that you’ve done previously? The SSA will also want to consider whether or not you are capable of performing work similar to what you’ve done in the past 15 years.
- Can you do a different type of work? If you’re unable to perform similar work to what you’ve done previously, the SSA will consider whether or not you can do a different type of work with what is called your “residual functional capacity.”
