Frequently Asked Questions

 

Might I damage my patient’s case if I make a mistake, such as indicating unintentionally that the patient is not completely unable to work?

A skilled Ocala disability lawyer will recommend that you speak to your patient’s lawyer concerning your testimony, and can remind you that the Social Security Administration (SSA), when determining disability, does not necessarily require that the claimant be completely incapacitated.

When I fill in the paperwork for my patient’s disability case, what is the most damaging error I can make?

If you indicate that your patient’s impairments are more serious than they actually are, you undermine the reliability of your own opinion, rendering it worthless to the SSA as a means of deciding your patient’s status in accordance with the provisions of the Social Security Act.

Suppose I believe that my patient is capable of full-time work?

Ocala disability lawyerAn Ocala disability lawyer can tell you that there are circumstances under which a patient may be declared disabled even though he or she may be able to work in a variety of capacities. The claimant’s age is one factor (over 50 or 55). Furthermore, the disability attorney may wish to present evidence of some bodily limitations in conjunction with a psychological problem as a means of determining whether or not the claimant qualifies.

What should I do—or not do—about the forms?

By contacting an Ocala disability lawyer prior to completing any paperwork, you can obtain answers to your questions and assistance with the requisite forms.
