An important part of your hearing testimony will be describing your physical abilities and limitations. Below, your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer has listed some areas typical of this type of testimony.
Your Ocala Social Security disability attorney will advise you to be prepared to speak about your ability to lift and carry as well as your limitations with each. Thus, things like the most weight you are able to lift and carry and what would happen if you exceeded that limit will be important to your testimony.
The judge will ask about your postural abilities and your limitations in movements like twisting, bending, kneeling, climbing and crawling. He will need to know how frequently you are able to do these things and the consequences of overdoing it.
Another area of importance will be your manual manipulation ability, such as reaching, feeling, pushing, pulling and twisting. You should explain to the judge if you find yourself frequently dropping objects or are unable to do continuous activity with your hands for up to eight hours. Activities such as opening a jar, writing or picking up small objects will be important.
