Obtaining Assistance With Your Disability Claim From Your Doctor

In order to qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you must provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) with sufficient medical evidence documenting your condition. If you are seeking SSD benefits, working with your doctor is an important aspect of achieving a successful claim.

At Bartels Sherman & Wallace, we represent people who suffer from serious physical and mental health impairments — disabilities that keep them from working. We can give you the information you need about documenting your SSD claim or appeal. Contact us today online or by phone at 870-330-4377 to arrange a consultation with an experienced Arkansas Social Security Disability lawyer.

Documenting Your Disability

It’s natural to downplay our pain and suffering, even when getting medical treatment — a lot of people simply don’t like to complain. However, if you are seeking SSD benefits, it is very important to let your doctor know every detail of your condition such as how it affects your ability to stand, sit, bend and partake in other everyday work activities.

Some doctors are not aware of the SSA’s documentation requirements. We ask our clients to notify us whenever they receive medical treatment. We can communicate with your doctor to let him or her know the type of documentation we need to advance your claim.

Our attorneys have extensive experience handling SSD cases and can help you pursue the benefits you need and deserve.
