    How Much Does a Tampa Disability Lawyer Cost?

    OVER $1 BILLION IN RECOVERIES FOR OUR CLIENTS

    For those who need it, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is one of the most vital services that there is, providing financial security following an injury that limits one’s ability to work. Unfortunately, it as an all too common occurrence for those who desperately need SSDI benefits to be denied on their first application.

    While many of these denied applicants could benefit from the help of an expert attorney, there is one worry that prevents them from getting the assistance that they need: cost. Read on to learn out how much a disability lawyer costs and why you should hire a Tampa disability lawyer for help when you’ve been denied the SSDI benefits you deserve.

    Fees and Back Pay

    Unlike typical payment agreements, any fees you agree to pay to your Tampa disability lawyer must be approved by Social Security. This contract is known as a fee agreement and will serve as the basis for your lawyer’s payment. You and your attorney can agree to whatever fee you both find acceptable, unless it exceeds $6,000 or 25 percent or your potential back pay if you win your case.

    It is also important to note that there are certain circumstances where your lawyer can request a higher fee, the two most common instances being if you fired your lawyer and hired another or if your initial hearing is denied and your lawyer is forced to appeal to a higher court.

    Writing a Successful Fee Agreement

    When writing out your fee agreement with your attorney, it is important that you adhere as closely as possible to Social Security’s guidelines for this document. Generally speaking, there are actually only two hard and fast rules for creating a free agreement that is likely to be approved: 1. The fees do not exceed the amounts stipulated by Social Security; 2. The fee agreement is signed by both your lawyer and yourself prior to submittal.

    To speed up the approval process, your attorney should create and submit the fee agreement to Social Security as soon as they have agreed to handle your case.

    What about Legal Costs?

    The other question about cost that many people have when considering a Tampa disability lawyer is related to legal fees. Although it is possible for a disability lawyer to request a minor fee at the outset, most disability attorneys will cover legal costs throughout the course of the case and then take their fee once the case is resolved.

    The most common costs that will occur throughout the course of your case will be spent acquiring medical records and other documents that go towards proving your disability. Any specific questions you might have about the fees involved in your case can be answered by your disability lawyer.

    Consult with a Tampa Disability Lawyer

    Although many people are worried about the cost, hiring a disability lawyer to represent you at your SSDI hearing is one of the best investments you can make. For a nominal fee, you’ll be getting the professional legal representation that will lead to you getting the SSDI benefits you need to move on with your life. To find a Tampa disability lawyer who will handle your case compassionately, schedule a consultation with the Disparti Law Group.
