As a social security disability attorney, I give here some questions and answers such as should I talk to an attorney this is a great question because there are so many situations. But this may help you to break this down.
Consult with an attorney before applying for benefits. I have not yet applied, should I talk to a disability lawyer before I apply? Should I just go apply and then talk to a lawyer when I get denied?
Nothing I have undergone changed my opinion on this. But I think that’s not true anymore. I think the term, the process of applying, is kind of a little more complicated, the importance of filling in the forms, and crackly it’s more important now I think it ever was.
And I think it’s wise to talk to an attorney to get an idea of what arguments for your disability are used. I am thinking about applying for benefits. What do I need to know? A lot of times when I talk to people these things identify their potential problems with their case would be a lack of ongoing medical treatment.
So if you go applying for benefits you have to establish relationships with a doctor, ideal specialist who belongs to go or record to talk about the limitations you might have to work it. If you have that relationship you need to get that going before you apply for the benefits. You know if you tell me you talked to somebody else in the past so I go to that great doctor and the doctor is really helpful to me but he doesn’t believe in the concept of disability, he believes everybody can do some kind of work. Well, I am going to tell you if you are applying for disability but having a doctor who doesn’t believe in disability is gonna be a big big problem. So again somebody called me in that situation. I want to say that establishing a relationship with a doctor is more open to the idea that people actually can be disabled.
