Sorry.  You're not going to win that argument.  I agree that it is an injury to you to wait longer for the decision you were seeking, but not every injury provides for recovery under the law.

M. Scott Peck wrote "Life is difficult."  I would add, "Life is often unfair."  The law is very specific about what it can and will do, and it will not always "make someone pay" for a difficult or unfair situation.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
