As you prepare to go to court regarding your disability claim, you may have a number of questions regarding your medical history. Charlotte Social Security disability attorney can answer many of the common questions and help guide you during the process.

Do They Always Question My Medical History?

Surprisingly, you may not get questioned at all during the proceedings, according to Charlotte Social Security disability lawyer. The judge should already have your medical records from the hospital, doctors and anyone else who has treated you.

How Do I Get the Records to the Judge?

It is your lawyer's responsibility to make sure all your medical records are in the hearing exhibit file. This includes any doctor letters that further explain your condition.

What Kind of Questions Will the Judge Ask Me?

Charlotte Social Security disability attorney knows from experience that many of the following questions may be asked by the judge:

  • How often do you see your doctor?
  • What types of doctors have you seen?
  • Where you hospitalized? If so, when?
  • What type of treatment are you receiving from your doctor?
  • What medications are you taking?
  • How often do you take your medicine?
  • How effective are the medications?
  • Are you experiencing any side effects?
  • Can you describe the symptoms and treatment of your condition since the beginning?

Will I Need to Explain Technical Medical Aspects of My Case to the Judge?

No, you will not, according to Charlotte Social Security disability attorney. In fact, it is better to not even explain or discuss anything unless your lawyer clears it first. However, if you are asked by the judge about what the doctor has told you about your condition and limitations, try to quote the doctor as accurately as possible.
