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.

Client Testimonial – Always There For Me
“I applied for Social Security in 2002. I was denied and took my case to the highest level, the Administrative Law Judge. I was still denied. In 2004, I went to Elliott Andalman for help. I was referred to him by a health professional that told me if it was possible to win, Elliott Andalman… would be the person that could do it. He took my case which led to a victory in 2009. Elliott and his paralegal, Ariele Hausner, not only helped me win my case but they were always there for me. Always taking my calls, reassuring me that they would stand by my side. I developed a wonderful relationship with the two of them. I trust them completely. I even had an opportunity to review Elliot’s credentials. I was very humbled that he took my case. He has been on and won a wide variety of high profile cases. I don’t think anyone else would have stuck by my side and not given up like the two of them did. They both did their best at all times. To them I am eternely grateful. Thank you for a job well done.” S.H. – Washington, D.C. Read more “Client Testimonial – Always There For Me”
