Although the conditions disability applicants have vary drastically, typically they all have one thing in common. Because you are not able to work you may be in a tight financial situation. In cases like these your initial knee jerk reaction when you hear the word lawyer may be “I can’t afford that.” Luckily, getting an attorney may be more affordable than you think.
What Initial Fees Should I Expect?
If you hire the disability attorneys at Mountain West Disability you don’t need to worry about paying anything up front. In fact, we will only take a fee if and only if we are able to win you benefits with back pay. If we can’t win benefits for you we will never charge you a penny. If we can win you benefits but not any back benefits again we will not charge you anything.
A typical expense when applying for disability benefits is the cost to obtain medical records. For some of our clients this can add up to several hundred dollars. Most law firms will pay for these initially, however they will stick their clients with the bill after their claims are settled regardless if they won or not. Something we offer for our clients is gathering the medical records for free. We will never ask you to pay us back for any expenses we incurred during your claim.
How Much Will It Cost if I Am Approved?
Social Security sets a fee for all attorneys. The fee they thought would be fair is 25% of back benefits but no more than $6,000. Your back benefits is the money you would have been receiving if you were approved for disability benefits when you filed.
