An Ocala Social Security Disability Attorney Discusses Testifying About Your Limitations

Good Days, Bad Days

Your Ocala Social Security disability attorney is aware that your disability may cause some days to be better for you than others. This can affect your testimony, since you may not be able to stand, sit or walk as easily on a bad day as you would be able to on a good day.

The disability judge will want to know about your good days as well as your bad days; therefore, you should describe exactly how your daily activities are affected on either kind of day. In addition, your Ocala Social Security disability attorney will advise that you have an answer for the judge if he or she asks you to estimate how many of your days are good and how many are bad in a typical month. Many claimants don’t take the time to determine this information, but the judge will need it to make his or her decision.

Know Your Limitations

In order for your testimony to be effective, you need to know both yourself and your limitations and be able to describe them to the judge, without minimizing or exaggerating them. This will require some contemplation on your part, as well as discussions with friends and family members. It will also require you to consult with your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer well in advance of the actual hearing.

Your testimony depends, in large part, on details. The judge will more easily understand your specific symptoms and limitations if you provide relevant, accurate, and clearly stated details in your testimony.
