At your hearing, it will be important to respond appropriately to the judge. Below, your Ocala Social Security disability attorney has described some common mistakes made by claimants and how to avoid these mistakes yourself.
It may seem difficult not to argue to the judge that you are unable to work, but stick to the limitations and symptoms caused by your impairment using specific examples and anecdotes. Your attorney should be the one to make a case to the judge and argue that the testimony you have provided justifies a finding of disabled.
Judges do not like when a claimant tries to make them feel badly about his life. Nor will they view comparisons with others favorably. Each runs the risk of the judge viewing you in a negative light, and it is best to avoid anything that could put you at a disadvantage.
Your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer will warn that trying to draw conclusions for the judge, such as stating that you absolutely cannot work, may have the opposite effect than you intend. With effective testimony, the judge will arrive at a fair decision.
Adequate preparation will be your best tool for an effective testimony and a successful hearing. Call 352-304-5300 today to speak with an Ocala Social Security disability attorney from CJ Henry Law Firm, PLLC.
