3 Important Reasons Why You Should Hire A Disability Attorney


Have you become disabled and unable to work? Are you entitled to compensation or government disability payments but you keep getting your claims denied? When you're sick or injured, day-to-day life can be difficult enough. You don't want the added hassle of trying to deal with an insurance company or the government. Maybe you've already toyed with the idea of hiring a lawyer to handle everything but have dismissed the thought for various reasons. However, there are many more reasons why you should reconsider getting a disability attorney to assist you. Some of the most important reasons include:

No money up front: As you are probably aware, hiring an attorney can be expensive. However, a disability attorney doesn't take payment up front. Instead, he or she will get a portion of whatever settlement that you receive. Exactly how much they will get will depend upon whether you're getting an insurance payout or government benefits, but it's usually around one-third of whatever money you receive. Since you aren't currently getting any money at all without the assistance of a lawyer, finally getting two-thirds of whatever you're owed is an extremely attractive option. A good attorney will always discuss payment expectations before asking you to sign the paperwork saying that you've hired them.

Redirect creditors: If you're being harassed by creditors due to your inability to pay off the bills that you owe, it may be a relief to know that you can get them to stop calling. Although it won't work with all creditors, having your disability attorney contact some of them to let them know that you're in the process of getting your settlement may be enough to make those creditors stop calling you for a while. Fewer creditors hassling you will allow you to focus your efforts on living your life instead of worrying all of the time.

Cut through red tape: An experienced disability attorney will know avenues to pursue that you may not have previously considered. Due to his or her past cases, he or she will likely know exactly which numbers to call and what paperwork to fill out in order to get the best and fastest result. Instead of waiting for weeks or even months to hear anything, an experienced attorney may be able to get things going in a matter of days. While there is no guarantee that this will happen for your case, the possibility does exist.
