Tulsa Social Security Disability Attorney
SSDI Lawyer Protecting the Rights of Disabled Individuals
If you have become disabled – whether by disease or injury – you may be determined by the Social Security Administration to be a disabled person pursuant to the Social Security Act. If your disability claim is denied by Social Security, you need a lawyer. We can help you.
Social Security Disability is an administrative process where decision on your claim is made by government claim investigators or by Administrative Law Judges. The decision process turns upon the medical records that are submitted to the SSA, and upon the testimony of the Claimant (and other witnesses) that is offered at the time of the Hearing before the Administrative Law Judge.
The Social Security Administration is very inefficient and unreliable in their efforts at gathering all of the claimant’s medical records. As your attorney, we gather all relevant medical information and submit it to the SSA for you, thereby ensuring that the decider of your claim has access to all of your relevant medical history.
Success of your disability claim turns upon your proof that you have a disability that is recognized by the Social Security Administration, and that it has or will render you disabled from work for 12 months or longer.
Disability claims often involve complex medical issues. With over 30 years of experience as a medical malpractice attorney, Richard Shallcross understands the medical issues in your case, and he is well equipped to know if you are disabled, and to prove to the SSA that you are a disabled person, as such is defined in the Social Security Act.
