In Tennessee, over 75 percent of SSDI applications are denied at their initial filing for benefits.
Thankfully, there are numerous opportunities available to appeal the Social Security Administration's (SSA) decision and garner your entitled disability benefits. But you need to act quickly, contact an experienced disability benefits lawyer today!
We Understand What A Denial of Your Claim Means to Your Family.
Experienced in every aspect of Social Security Disability law, Forrest Jackson is a disability lawyer who knows how the Social Security Administration works and is familiar with the disability appeals process! Millions of people in the United States and in the Chattanooga area rely on Social Security benefits. Workers pay into these benefits out of their paychecks so that they can use these disability benefits if they become unable to work.
When you are unable to work due to a disability, being denied the benefits you need to provide for your family can be extremely frustrating! Especially when you've worked so hard for your paychecks, paying into the disability benefits system. It's not acceptable that your loved ones may have to do without their needs or that your own health may suffer because of being denied your Social Security Disability benefits. You worked hard to accumulate your disability benefits and are entitled to receive your compensation.
We also can help you appeal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims that have been denied.
Jackson Law Firm also works with SSI clients and can appeal your case if you have been denied Supplemental Security Benefits.

We know why claims are denied
Most applications are rejected because the applicant failed to meet the basic criteria. In other cases the SSA made a determination that the applicant failed to prove they were indeed eligible. Our attorney has legal experience with disability benefits and appeals and has handled thousands of cases. We have an in-depth knowledge of disability applications, including the particulars an SSA examiner will look for when reevaluating a claim.

Your attorney will make sure all medical records supporting your disability claim are timely, accurate, and thorough. We will also help you obtain the additional medical records from your doctor and health care professionals that you need to substantiate your claim for benefits.
Garnering the written and verbal testimony of expert vocational witnesses, medical experts, and family members who can attest to the difficulties of your disability and inability to work can be crucial to your case. Your disability lawyer will do everything he can to make this happen. We also offer a free case review.
Unfortunately, the appeals process can take anywhere from six months to two years, or longer. Rest assured, Jackson Law Firm, PLLC specializes in Social Security Disability Benefits and offers the steadfast legal guidance you deserve for as long as it takes.

Our disability benefits attorney will stay by your side through every stage necessary of the appeal process, including:
Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) hearing
Appeals Council Review
Federal Court Review
You have 60 days to file an appeal for a reconsideration of your disability claim if your initial application has been denied by the SSA. At this level of appeal, the SSA reviews your claim. You will have the opportunity to present medical documentation and supporting information that you may not have been included in your initial claim.
Administrative Law Judge Hearing
If the Reconsideration Review is denied the case goes before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). Just like the initial denial for disability benefits, you have 60 days from the Reconsideration denial. You will be able to bring witnesses and experts before the ALJ.
If the ALJ denies your appeal, the next step is to go before the Appeals Council. This appeal also must be filed within 60 days of the ALJ's denial of your appeal. The Appeals Council will review the reconsideration decision of the ALJ to see if the evidence was properly considered and that there weren't any errors in their determination.
The final step is to file a claim in Federal Court if the Appeals Council denies your review. This appeal also must be filed within 60 days of the Appeals Council's denial. There is no jury in the District Court's hearing which considers procedural errors and sometimes will consider evidence and facts brought up before the Appeal's Council.
We do our best to get you a successful disability review!
If it sounds confusing and like a lot of work, it is! But having the right disability benefits lawyer on your side can improve the likelihood of success for your appeal for SSDI or SSI benefits.
