There's a wide variety of reasons why people don't fight back against disability benefit denials. The most common reason we hear is that people are intimidated by the insurance company. They feel powerless against a big system that doesn't believe their medical claims. People often believe that they will be denied their claim again even if they do hire a lawyer.
Some people choose to appeal the insurance company's decision, submitting additional medical information for their case manager to review again. But appeals are denied 9 times out of 10. It's easy for the insurance company to say no again, but this leaves people feeling even more discouraged. "Why should I bother? There's nothing I can do."
