Social Security Disability Lawyer in Pennsylvania
Don't Give Up Hope. Metzger Wickersham is Here to Help.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI or simply SSD) is a government program designed for people who have become disabled and are no longer able to work. Most people pay into the program throughout their entire working lives through payroll deductions and therefore reasonably trust that the government will approve them for benefits if they suffer a disabling injury or illness. Unfortunately, however, it's very common for SSD claims to be denied by the government. Nationally, about two-thirds of all applicants are denied benefits initially.
Many disabled people become discouraged after they receive a disability benefits denial notice, but you should know that there is hope and help available. If your initial SSD application was denied, don't give up. Get in touch with a Harrisburg Social Security Disability lawyer at Metzger Wickersham today to schedule a free initial consultation. We’d be happy discuss your case and how we may be able to help you receive the benefits you are entitled to.

How an SSD Attorney Can Help
If you need benefits and are struggling to get your application approved, it may be in your best interests to hire a Social Security Disability attorney. Working with a lawyer provides a number of important benefits. Your lawyer can ensure that all of your paperwork is filled out accurately and submitted in a timely manner. In fact, one of the top reasons why appeals are denied is because many applicants fail to return their appeals form on time or fail to include helpful information that could help them win their case. An attorney can also help gather medical records that prove a client’s injuries and the impact those injuries have had on the client’s life. If the case progresses to a hearing, a lawyer can represent the client and ensure that their case is presented clearly, completely, and convincingly.
