For some, sitting can be just as painful as strenuous activity. Your Ocala Florida Social Security disability attorney has explained below how to present effective sitting testimony should the judge bring it up.
While information about sitting may not seem all that important, the judge may still ask you about it at your hearing. He may want to know for how long you are able to sit at one time or the total amount of time during an eight-hour shift you would be able to sit. Your Ocala Florida Social Security disability lawyer will remind you that sitting is an important part of many sedentary jobs, so it is important for you to give thoughtful consideration to any sitting questions from the judge.
If the judge has asked you to describe your capacity for sitting, it is important that you take his questions seriously and give an honest answer. Let him know if you can only sit for a short amount of time before you need to get up to walk around or lie down. Your Ocala Florida Social Security disability attorney will advise you to be specific about how your impairment affects your ability to sit for long periods and give instances during which it was an issue for you to do so.
Though the judge may not necessarily ask about your capacity for long periods of sitting, it is something you should be prepared to speak about. Your Ocala Florida Social Security disability lawyer will want to ensure that you are prepared to give specific examples and describe any issues you feel you may have if you were to have a job that required you to be seated all day.
