We represent a 59 year old carpenter with shoulder and hand problems, whose Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits were approved in less than three months. Given the cutbacks to the agencies processing SSD claims, the quick approval was somewhat unusual.
With the claimant’s help, we were able to obtain and submit treatment records, diagnostic tests, and a narrative report that supported the claimant’s application. The narrative report included restrictions and limitations that described the claimant’s functionality, symptoms, treatment, and supporting objective findings. Consequently, the claimant was not asked to undergo a consultative examination, which frequently is the basis for denying SSD applications.Previous Next
