Loveland SSD Attorneys

Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus & Lyme Disease

Being afflicted with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, or Lyme disease is difficult enough without having to also desperately fight for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. These debilitating medical conditions often prevent people from being able to work properly, socialize normally, or even live comfortably. The severity of the illnesses often make completing even the smallest tasks impossible. That’s why SSD benefits exist. With over thirty years of combined legal experience, our Loveland SSD attorneys will fight for you and help you get the financial resources you need and deserve.

Contact us today to find out if you are eligible for SSD benefits and get a free consultation.

We Know the Application Process Inside & Out

The application process for receiving SSD benefits is complicated and can drag on for years without proper legal counsel. There are many complex forms and obscure policies in the process that we encountered over the past three decades. Fortunately, we have spent so much time in this particular field of law that our team of lawyers has become intimately familiar with all of SSD’s policies, guidelines, and forms. We know what the workers at the Social Security Administration (SSA) are looking for in the filed paperwork and we know how to maximize your chance of success.

These are the steps to apply for SSD benefits:

  • File your initial claim to the SSA by mail, over the phone, or through us
  • If denied, you can request for reconsideration
  • If denied, you can request for an ALJ (administrative law judge) hearing
  • If denied at the hearing, you can request a review by the Appeals Council
  • If denied by Appeals Council, you can file a civil suit with the Federal Court

How to Increase Your Chance of Success

Governmental assistance programs move at a snail’s pace which is why it is important to get your benefits early on in the process, before the appeals. A quick approval can result if your application is comprehensive and convincing.

One of the best ways to strengthen your claim and make it more persuasive is to provide ample documentation of your illness or injury. Visit a doctor or other licensed medical professional to overserve and document your medical condition thoroughly. The more evidence you have of your medical condition affecting you and your ability to work, the better. Make sure to constantly document any new changes in your medical condition as they could influence the application’s approval as well.

From Happy Clients

  • The Busch Law Firm was the best choice I could have made.

    “The Busch Law Firm was the best choice I could have made. Brett Busch was a top-notch Attorney and represented me during the three year legal process with Workers comp as well as a personal injury claim. During these three years he guided me through the process to maximize my claim. He kept me well informed and was prompt to return my calls or emails whenever I had a question or concern. Deidra Deery , Brett's Paralegal at the Firm , was more than helpful anytime I needed assistance. As a matter of fact everyone I spoke to at the Busch Law Firm was kind and caring any time I was in contact with. This Law Firm and Brett were always professional and most importantly effective in resolving my legal issues.”

  • You were a God send

    “Thanks Brett....what you did for is the last 2 years were a God send and above and beyond your call of duty having to put up with and all my confusion and patience on your end.

You will always be a good memory. If you treat everyone like you did me you will always be a success. Merry Christmas ”


  • I 100% recommend this firm.

    “Where do I begin? The process is unbelievably long. That said, I can't imagine doing this without legal representation and assistance. I applied for Social Security Disability benefits in July 2009. I was denied by Social Security in October 2009. I immediately filed an appeal online. By the time I heard back from Social Security in December 2010 I had pretty much forgotten about my appeal. My case for appeal was set for June 1, 2011. Social Security said I could represent myself, or obtain a private practice lawyer or a lawyer from a pool of government lawyers in Fort Collins. Needless to say, I was so overwhelmed I was not very optimistic about any option. I procrastinated until March, when I attempted to contact the government agency in Fort Collins. We played phone tag, and I was not impressed. I just happened to see in the Loveland Reporter Herald "Mark Your Calendar" section, that there was a seminar on options for your Social Security appeal. I went, even though I was told the seminar was full, because time was quickly slipping away. Words, though, don't describe my relief to find that the meeting answered all my questions. There was no pressure to sign up with Busch Law Offices. Brett patiently answered every question, and was very kind and empathetic. Because my hearing was quickly coming up, I received an immediate meeting with Brett. Here is the most important thing: I don't look ill or disabled. He took the time to read my medical reports, he asked pertinent questions and he listened. When we agreed to work together, he again patiently and simply explained everything before I signed. There were no surprises. Lynne, his assistant, quickly organized all my medical records. Whenever I called, her calming and cheerful voice eased my mind. If she did not have the answer to questions, she conferred with Brett and always returned phone calls in a very timely manner. Brett sent me to the proper physicians. The day before my hearing, we spent almost three hours going over reports, facts, how to answer questions at the hearing, even how to dress. We were very well prepared. The day of my appeal, Brett calmed me by talking to me about anything but the hearing. It worked. He presented my case simply and efficiently. I was at ease, and we won. On a personal note, Brett is an exceptional young lawyer. Social Security Disability is a very difficult and emotional arena. Brett worked and spoke like a seasoned veteran. As for Lynne, she is simply the best. I 100% recommend this firm.”
