The chances of an applicant being successful in a Social Security Disability case are better if the person appeals the initial denial of an application rather than filing another application. But the process can be long and stressful for both the attorney and client. The government is now better equipped to defend denials at hearings. Medical records are more accessible and weak cases are easier to spot. Inconsistent statements in medical notes or on claim forms can derail a client’s case. Having invested so much effort and time into the case, it is imperative that you're on top of your game in the hearing, to give the client the best chance of winning.
