Alabama Disability Lawyer Keep your Lawyer Informed

Alabama Disability Lawyer Keep your Lawyer Informed

Alabama Disability Lawyer Keep your Lawyer Informed: If you are disabled, chances are good that your initial claim for Social Security Disability benefits and/or SSI benefits will be denied. This does not mean that you are not entitled to disability benefits; it just means that you are going to have to fight to win your benefits.

The Social Security Administration usually does a good job in obtaining a copy of your medical records, but many times the Administration simply does not obtain a copy of all your records because they do not have the resources to ensure that all available medical records are obtained in every disability case. To ensure that the Social Security Administration has all your relevant records, you need an experienced Alabama Social Security Lawyer working for you. At Powell and Denny, we obtain updated medical records and file them electronically with the Social Security Administration. Our Social Security Attorneys also contacts your treating physicians and asks for specific information and for forms to be completed by your treating physicians; question and forms which the Social Security Administration will not request.

Generally, it takes around a year from the time your disability claim is appealed to the date of your hearing before an administrative law judge. During this time it is imperative that you keep your lawyer informed as to what type of medical treatment you are receiving and how you are doing. If you do not keep your lawyer informed, they will not know what steps to take to ensure your claim is adequately prepared for hearing.

I generally ask my clients to call me after seeing a doctor, so they can keep me apprised of their situation. What did the doctor say? Are you taking new medications? Have costly tests been ordered that you cannot afford to have performed? These are questions whose answers we need to know in order for us to prepare your claim to the best of our ability.  If you can never speak with your lawyer to let them know how you are doing-there is a problem that needs to be addressed.

If you have been denied Social Security Disability benefits in Alabama, but you believe that you meet the legal definition of disabled, don’t give up. Contact and speak with one of the experienced Alabama Disability Attorneys at Powell and Denny today.
