A 54 year old sanitation worker from North Babylon with various orthopedic impairments retained us after his Social Security Disability (“SSD”) application was denied. Nothing unusual about the case except that we filed over 2,000 pages of treatment records, much of which were hospital records. The substance of the file was not unlike many similar claims that were denied by the State agency. It may be that regardless of the materiality of the documentation submitted, when a very large volume of paper is filed, the State agency feels more confident about the credibility of the claim.
This is another example of why it is important to retain a disability attorney when you apply for SSD. Even though it may seem obvious to you that you are disabled, you cannot get approved without support from your doctors. An attorney who specializes in disability can discern what information is needed from your doctors to get your claim approved. If you are thinking about applying for SSD, please call my office for a free phone consultation. We have offices conveniently located on Long Island in both Nassau and Suffolk counties.Previous Next
