Chronic Pain Cases

If you would like to further discuss disability and chronic pain, contact a Charlotte disability attorney from Bridgman Law Offices at (888) 632-9912.New-Jersey-personal-injury-attorneys-199x300.jpg

A Charlotte disability attorney commonly hears from claimants who suffer from chronic pain. Cases involving chronic pain can often be difficult because pain is not easy to measure on an objective basis. Many of these cases are determined by whether the Social Security Administration finds the claimant's description of the pain to be credible or not. 

Medically Determinable Impairment

It is not enough for you to simply say that you suffer from pain. Instead, you must establish that you have a medically determinable impairment that can possibly cause you pain. This type of impairment is one that exists due to a psychological, physiological, or anatomical abnormality.

Objective Evidence

Your Charlotte disability attorney can explain that objective evidence may help you demonstrate that you have a medically determinable impairment that can be expected to cause pain. Objective evidence is that which is acceptable to the medical community, such as clinical results or the use of laboratory diagnostic techniques. This evidence can help support your own contentions regarding the intensity and persistence of pain. It can also establish how the pain affects your ability to perform certain work-related tasks.

Credibility

Your credibility is a pivotal aspect of your case. Your Charlotte disability attorney can explain that the Social Security Administration bases part of its assessment of your credibility on how consistent your statements are in comparison to medical evidence or other evidence present in your case.
