A denial doesn’t mean the end of the road.
Receiving a notice of denial of a Social Security Disability or long term disability benefits can be discouraging. Most likely, you were counting on benefits to replace a portion of the income you are no longer able to earn due to an accident or illness. A denial of benefits is actually more common than you might think. The Social Security Administration reports that approximately 65% percent of initial applications are denied, and many insurance companies seem to turn down the majority of disability claims the first time. If your claim for long term disability insurance benefits or Social Security Disability has been denied, don’t give up hope. With persistence and the help of experienced attorneys like those at Andalman & Flynn, you’ll greatly increase your chances for a successful appeal.
You don’t have to go it alone.
Fortunately, you have the right to appeal a denial of benefits, but your window of time is short. While you can attempt to navigate the complex appeals process on your own, many people find that it’s better to seek the aid of a qualified disability appeal attorney. These cases are inherently complicated, and each one is unique. Even a minor error can damage your appeal, causing yet another denial of benefits. At Andalman & Flynn, our lawyers are trained and experienced in handling challenging disability cases and appeals. We can perform a variety of critical functions such as obtaining medical records and collecting key evidence to support your claim. We may even be able to strengthen your case and develop an appeal that gets results. Put our experience to work for you to get the benefits you deserve.

“I whole heartedly recommend Andalman & Flynn to anyone facing a legal journey that encompasses the use of exceptional knowledge about Federal Disability Laws and regulations. Ms. Villiers took my case after being separated from a long term career position with the federal government as a civil service employee, based upon my medical inability to… perform my job any longer. Ms. Villiers was genuinely compassionate about my situation and went to work immediately, steadfastly working with me to complete all documentation required to submit an application for a FERS Disability Retirement request to meet the one year legal time frame allocated. They consistently kept me informed, was supportive and positive and most importantly — always encouraged me to stay on top of my medical appointments and reports! Ms. Villiers also worked directly with my former agency diligently requesting and following up on final documents needed since my separation from service to complete my DR application with OPM. I am so thrilled to announce that my case was APPROVED by the OPM Disability Retirement office less than –30 days after they received the final document required! I highly recommend her! I cannot say enough kind words about the phenomenally kind treatment I received with a combination of top quality professional services by the Andalman and Flynn Law Firm as a whole. Under the already tough circumstances one is faced with when dealing with the unpleasantness of disabilities, financial struggles and job loss — they were the light of hope that always shined in times of discouragement and carried my case all the way through to the winning finish line!!” – Laura Read more “Client Testimonial”
