- DISABILITY CLAIM FAQ
We represented two claimants with orthopedic impairments seeking Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits at hearings with administrative law judge (“ALJ”) Patrick Kilgannon today. One was a 49 year old insurance agent from Syosset, and the other was a 33 year old Day Care Assistant from Baldwin. What they had in common were extensive pain management records and diagnostic tests.
It is difficult to prove pain. It is common sense that a pain management specialist is uniquely qualified to determine the extent to which pain affects a claimant’s functionality. A pain management specialist’s opinion regarding the subjective effect of pain is bolstered when there is “objective” evidence of an impairment that can cause pain.
For each claimant, we submitted a significant quantity of pain management treatment notes, electrodiagnostic test reports, and functional restrictions and limitations from the treating pain management specialists. As a result, the ALJ made clear that both claimants would be entitled to receive SSD benefits.
Our clients could not be happier with the outcomes of their claims. One of the claimants retained us after she had applied on her own and was denied. We appealed her claim and took over from there. It is always a wise decision to retain an attorney who specializes in disability if you find yourself in a position where you need to apply for disability.
