Do I need a lawyer for my disability claim? Many people who call us ask that very question.

At Drummond Disability, we feel that the assistance of an experienced disability lawyer is essential to fully develop most claims. We also feel that if we can get into a claim at an early stage we can prevent many mistakes that can come to haunt us later. The fact is it’s a lot easier to prevent the problem than to cure it.

The disability attorneys at Drummond Disability fully realize that most people are very reluctant to contact attorneys. The media and other sources put lawyers generally in an unfavorable light and this is resulted in people delaying representation, often until last minute which not only makes our job harder, mixed results much more doubtful.

Drummond Disability lawyers and staff help our clients with the disability process. We even can apply for Social Security disability benefits online for the client simply by them giving us a phone call.

Once a claim is filed, we consult with our clients and make sure they follow up with the appropriate medical professionals in order (1) to treat their physical or mental conditions and (2) to document how the diagnoses and treatments substantiate a totally disabling condition. This is often much easier said than done.

To assist us in presenting the best case possible for our clients, we have developed a proprietary book of forms and questionnaires that can be used by claimants and their medical providers to clearly illustrate the nature and severity of their conditions.

With over 40 years experience in handling disability claims and thousands of successful claims, our experience speaks for itself.
