Appealing a Denial of Social Security or Long Term Disability Benefits
APPEALING AN UNFAVORABLE RULING BY AN SSD JUDGE
Approximately 70 to 75 percent of initial Social Security Disability (SSD) claims are denied. If your claim has been denied, it is important to remember that you have appeal rights. At Osterhout Berger Disability Law, we can explain those rights and help you determine your options for pursuing an appeal.
APPEALING A DENIAL OF LONG TERM DISABILITY BENEFITS
If you have long-term disability insurance and have suffered an injury or illness, you may expect that your company will approve your claim for benefits. Unfortunately, insurance companies often try to deny claims in order to minimize their losses. If your claim is denied, it can be financially devastating. Let us help you through the appeals process.

NATIONWIDE SOCIAL SECURITY APPEALS
If you are an attorney representing Social Security claimants you know, as we do, that the practice has become very demanding, and you have probably also noticed that ALJs are far more likely than they used to be to deny claims. There are, of course, legitimate reasons to deny claims, but if you want a second opinion about an ALJ denial you have received, and/or just do not have the time to pursue federal court cases, or keep up with the changes in federal court practice, please consider partnering with us.
