How a Social Security Disability Lawyer in Norfolk Can Help

Some SSDI applications go smoothly and need no extra help. However, if you do not file your claim correctly or forget important information, you could miss out on full benefits or even get your application denied. A Norfolk Social Security Disability Attorney will make sure that does not happen.

Your Lawyer Will Help You...

Although this may be your first time applying for Social Security Disability, that is not the case for our lawyers. Our attorneys have years of experience, and they know exactly what paperwork you need and how to fill it out for a strong claim. Having an expert eye for your application can make the difference between denial and benefits.

You need to show how your condition affects you and how much you are owed for your disability. A Norfolk SSDI lawyer will know how to request the necessary medical documents and compile everything you need to prove your claim.

If the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies your application, it most likely means your application was missing something or you need to appeal the SSA’s decision.

When you get your denial letter, the SSA will most likely tell you why they denied your claim but it can be difficult to figure out how to fix that. However, our lawyers will tell you exactly what you are missing.

In some cases, you need to appeal the SSA’s decision in front of a judge or an appeals council. If that is the case, you should not go into your hearing alone, which is difficult without an attorney. We will help you negotiate and tell you what you need to say to have your claim accepted.

Will My Claim Be Approved?

Even The Odds

Unfortunately, more people are denied Social Security Disability benefits than accepted. Reasons for denial include, not having the medical evidence they need, their condition does not meet the SSA’s strict guidelines for what is a disability, or they are currently working. Claiming a disability is complicated, but a Rutter Mills Norfolk Social Security Disability Lawyer on your side will straighten out any confusion.

The Social Security Administration has stated that over 60% of claimants are denied in the initial stage. Although a 40% acceptance rate might not seem favorable, hiring a Norfolk Social Security Disability Lawyer will significantly increase your chances of acceptance.

Your Rutter Mills lawyer knows the common pitfalls other claimants experience and helps you avoid them, and, if your SSDI benefits are denied, there are still plenty of chances to get that decision reversed.

How Much Social Security Disability Pays in Virginia

In general, Social Security Disability allows you to live on a similar budget you did while you worked so you can still support yourself. Compensation is based on how much you pay into Social Security from your paychecks.

SSDI benefits can vary from case to case depending on your past wages and how extensive your disability is. The average monthly Social Security payment rises every year. In 2024, the SSA expects the average monthly payment to be $1,907 and the maximum monthly payment being $3,822 per month.

You can use an online calculator, but those are only as good as the information you already have. The most accurate way to find out how much you could get from Social Security Disability in Norfolk is to meet with a Rutter Mills Social Security Disability lawyer about your case. At your free initial consultation, an attorney can assess your situation and tell you how much your benefits may be.

First off I want to thank Rutter Mills for the outstanding work they continue to do. I had a case recently and it was a complex one. My lawyer, Will Nexsen did an amazing job. I would highly recommend him and Rutter Mills. I want to give a big thanks to Julia, as well, for keeping me constantly in the loop. She always texted or called me back immediately with any questions and concerns I had. I greatly appreciated that.

Victor B.

What I loved about my Rutter Mills experience was the team approach they provided from start to finish. The paralegal Selena D. was always keeping me updated and accurately collecting information to make sure my case was on a strong foundation. My attorney, Adam Lotkin raises the bar to the highest standard. Adam's knowledge, experience, and grit afforded me the strongest settlement in my case. Top 1% settlement is the best way to describe it. Your attorney matters and I am so glad I choose Rutter Mills, Adam Lotkin, and team to represent my case. I will use Rutter Mills again for my future needs.

Ray M

After getting hurt at work I had problems with workers compensation right away. Comp was denying claims for medical treatment and not paying correct amount of wages. I was very worried and stressed till I called Rutter Mills. Attorney Jesse Pound with paralegal Jordan Johnson made all my problems go away. Thank you so much for all your help.
