Disability Attorney

Discusses Medical Evidence 

Our North Carolina disability attorney can explain that your case must be decided based on medical evidence. There are various types of evidence, including the following: 

Medical Records

Your North Carolina disability attorney can explain that the medical records that you provide must demonstrate that you have a medically determinable impairment in order for you to be approved for benefits. However, in some cases, this is all of the evidence that you need if your medical condition is severe enough. These records are especially important because they can help substantiate a claimant's statements.

Medical Statements

Your North Carolina disability attorney can explain that your medical statements provided by your healthcare providers can also serve an important role in your case. Your doctors may make statements regarding your condition and your prognosis. Additionally, they may include statements regarding treatment and the potential likelihood that such treatment can minimize your symptoms. They can also comment on your symptoms and the likely work limitations that your condition would impose. However, a doctor who states that a claimant is "disabled," does not control the determination. Being found disabled is a medical and legal conclusion, and a primary care physician is not in the position to make this decision. With that being said, a doctor's statements can be quite influential. This is especially true if the doctor is the claimant's treating physician because he or she has a history of observing the claimant.

Personal Statements

Finally, the statements that you and people who have observed you are evaluated. You provide answers and statements regarding your condition and symptoms and how these affect your ability to perform work functions and daily activities. Such statements are included in your application for benefits, your medical records and your testimony. Statements from colleagues, supervisors, friends and family may also write letters or provide testimony at your disability hearing. Your North Carolina disability attorney can explain this information can help bolster a case and provide important background information.
