Social Security

Social Security Lawyers in PA

Initial Social Security applications are denied at an extremely high rate. Many experts estimate the initial application denial rate to be as high as 80% of all applicants. The reasons for the denials could range from insufficient information obtained by the Social Security Administration, possible jobs which exist in the economy that a claimant is allegedly able to perform and the Social Security Administration's lack of understanding the effects a claimant’s conditions have on their ability to perform substantial gainful employment.

Caputo & Mariotti have represented hundreds of claimants whose applications have been denied. After a claim is denied, the claimant has a limited amount of time to file an appeal to request a hearing before an administrative law judge. The lawyers at Caputo & Mariotti are able to determine from the denial letter what information the administrative law judge will need in order to issue a fully favorable decision after a hearing. This could include anything from additional medical records, medical reports, vocational testimony or testimony from employers. Disability could be awarded for one medical condition or injury or as a result of a combination of medical conditions, injuries or even psychological conditions.
