One of the hardest parts of being approved for disability is being able to prove a health condition prevents you from working for eight hours a day, five days a week. There can never be too much medical evidence when going through the disability application and appeals process. It is important to make sure all of your medical records are submitted to Social Security. It also helps if your treating doctor can submit a letter or medical source statement form to support your case.? It also helps if you have evidence showing that you have lost previous jobs due to your health. In North Carolina, it is important to contact a Charlotte SSD lawyer to make sure your claim is filed in a professional and efficient manner. The sooner you file a claim, the better.

Ailments Add Up and Prevent People from Working

Some disability cases are due to a combination of health conditions. Other claims are due to one very severe health condition.? Whether you suffer from one very severe health condition or a combination of medical conditions, it does not always mean you will receive immediate approval. Social Security goes through the same five step sequential evaluation process in all cases. SSD standards are very rigid and most cases are denied multiple times before being approved. Medical records must well document the claimant?s impairments, and Social Security?s procedures followed in order to ultimately achieve success.

Speak with Your Doctor

Ask your physician to fill out a medical source statement form or ask them to write a letter in support of your disability case. A medical source statement form identifies your medical conditions and how they limit your ability to do work related activities like sitting, standing/walking, lifting/carrying, etc. An expert attorney is going to have forms available for you that are customized to fit your medical conditions and your case. Asking your doctor to complete the right form that fits your case is imperative. Skilled attorneys are more than capable of choosing the correct form to send your doctor. Most attorneys have a database of forms that apply to all cases.
