When preparing to testify in their Social Security disability hearing, clients of a disability lawyer in Ocala often ask what kind of testimony they’ll have to give.
The attorney or administrative law judge (ALJ) will ask the following kinds of questions:
1) What is your work history, and what types of jobs have you had over the previous 15 years?
2) What is your education, and how high a level did you achieve?
3) What is your medical history?
4) What symptoms are you suffering from, and how much pain are you in? How frequent are the symptoms?
5) What are your limitations? For example, how far are you able to walk and how long can you stand?
6) What are your daily activities for an average day now versus before you were injured?
Your lawyer will commonly let witnesses testify for you. This witness will explain how you are impaired and will tell the ALJ how your injuries have affected you.
