Why You Need An Experienced Disability Lawyer At Your Hearing
1 CommentFiled Under: Blog Posts
I have been a lawyer for several years, in that time I have represented several hundred clients before Social Security Disability Administrative Law Judges (ALJs). An experienced representative by your side gives you an advantage when you enter your disability hearing.
An experienced lawyer will work over time to develop your case to get it in a winnable position. If you do not have medical records to support the fact that you are unable to work your hearing will be tough to win. I understand the laws of disability and can advise you on the need to stay in treatment, get regular treatment, and to be compliant with your doctors orders. These things, among others, are requirements to show you are doing your part, and cannot work despite your best efforts.
An experienced lawyer will be ready at the hearing with a theory of disability that is consistent with your particular situation. Your disability lawyer will apply the facts of your condition, including the medical evidence in your file, to convince the judge that you are disabled under one or more disability laws. A disability lawyer familiar with the law will be able to argue multiple ways you are disabled, when the facts support such a finding, and if you, your doctors, and your medical evidence supports the fact you are disabled you will have a reasonable shot at winning your benefits. People over 50 generally have a greater chance at winning disability benefits, but young people can still win.
