Medical Care: The Key To Your Social Security Case

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a program of the Social Security Administration to pay benefits to injured workers who are no longer to earn significant earnings at a job that exists in substantial numbers in the United States economy.  Unfortunately it is extremely difficult to obtain SSDI even when you are seriously disabled, simply because the Administration does not look at your condition carefully until you see an Administrative Law Judge.

Even then, it is critical that you have an experienced social security disability attorney assisting you, so that the facts and details of your conditions, and the resulting restrictions, can be properly and quickly brought to the Administrative Law Judge’s attention.

The number one thing you can do to improve your chances of getting Social Security Disability is to continue to get Medical Care for your condition that causes you to be unable to work.

It is not necessary to telephone me to tell me about routine medical care.  But keep track of the dates of all medical treatment between now and the time we go to your hearing.  When I send you the letter about your hearing date, I’ll probably send you a form to complete to tell me about all of the medical care you’ve received since I first saw you.   However, if one of the following things happens, please telephone us:

  • There is a dramatic change in your condition – for the worse or the better.
  • Your doctor gives you a new diagnosis of your medical condition.
  • You are hospitalized.
  • You go back to work.
  • Your doctor gives you a form about your ability to work.

Let us help you get the benefits you deserve.  Contact our office by clicking HERE or call us at 303-780-7329 for your free appointment.
