Simmons Grab & Associates is proud to offer the following services which you may want to consider:
Future Medical Cost Projection – A Future Medical Cost Projection can be provided in a quick turn-around time when the need for a report that may be preferable for mediation or as an introduction to the formulation of a comprehensive Life Care Plan. It will identify the usual, reasonable and customary future medical costs that research reveals for the geographical area where the treatment or equipment is received. Resources used to determine these costs are documented and more cost effective.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Application – We assist with the SSDI application process to assure the best possibility to have benefits awarded and also with the appeal process, including preparation for hearings. The SSDI application and appeal process can be a very frustrating and confusing system to navigate. In addition, if an initial application is denied, it can take up to two years or more for a decision. Denials are at an all-time high.
A disability representative assists with the initial application which probably will decrease the risk of a lengthy appeal process. Should a case be appealed, the disability representative assists in submitting the requisite documentation to the Social Security Administration (SSA) and presents the case to the administrative law judge. The SSA recognizes both attorneys and non-attorney representatives as being eligible to represent claimants in the application and initial appeal process. Non-attorney representatives, eligible for direct pay, have passed a rigorous SSA testing process and have completed continuing education requirements each year. Representation fees are paid directly to eligible non-attorney representatives; and, just like attorneys, non-attorney representatives are only paid by the Social Security Administration if a case is awarded. Consequently, there would be no financial responsibility by the attorney.
