Attorney Fees in a Denied Disability Claim

If you're thinking about applying for disability benefits, you're also probably living with the stress of strained finances. Hiring an attorney to help you in your claim is almost essential to winning, but you might think you can't afford their services. The Coye Law Firm's disability lawyers want you to know how their fees and costs are determined in order to show you that you can get legal protection and affordable help.

Right to Representation

As an applicant for Social Security benefits, you have the right to hire or find representation during the course of your claim. This can be a friend, a family member, or an attorney at a law firm. In any case, you can have someone help you apply for disability benefits and appeal your claim.

Representatives are allowed to charge claimants no more than the fee amount authorized by Social Security. When a fee is determined, the representative needs to have it authorized by the Social Security Administration to collect it. If the claimant has the fee paid by someone else or gets their representative to sign a waiver, then the fee doesn't need to be approved.

If you need help with a disability insurance policy, you can also hire an attorney. The process for authorizing a representative to take charge of your case can vary among carriers, so review your policy or speak with a representative to do so.

What You Pay

The Coye Law Firm's attorneys represent disability claimants in their appeals on a contingency basis. This means that we do not collect on your case if you do not win. You don't have to pay anything out of pocket. We only claim a percentage of your back benefits if you are successful. Once our attorneys win your appeal, you keep the full amount of your future benefits. 

At the Coye Law Disability Center, we offer clients a free consultation to discuss their case. If we don't win on your behalf, then you don't owe us any money. We want to help you claim compensation for your lost wages due to a disability. Call our offices to discuss the value of your case today.
