Our Charlotte Disability Lawyers Discuss the Limiting Effects of Your Pain

For more information about Social Security Disability Benefits in Charlotte contact the Bridgman Law Offices today by calling (888) 632-9912.disability-lawyers-charlotte-nc-300x200.jpg 

If you have established through your medical records that your medically determinable impairment can be expected to produce chronic or severe pain, our Charlotte disability lawyers may be able to help you get this information across to the Social Security Administration. The Social Security Administration will evaluate your information and medical records before determining how the intensity and persistence of your pain limits your capacity for work. 

The decision maker will consider every piece of available evidence, including statements from you and your doctors, before making a decision. The decision maker may even consider statements from people who know you, such as friends, family and co-workers. When the Social Security Administration evaluates your pain, they may consider your daily activities. They may consider the location, frequency, intensity and duration of your pain as well as the cause of your pain or what aggravates it. They will consider the medications you take, including type, dosage and effectiveness, as well as side effects. They may also consider what treatments other than medication you have received for your pain. They will take into account the steps you have taken to attempt to relieve your pain, such as standing up for a few minutes every hour or sleeping on a board. They will consider other factors that concern your functional limitations and restrictions as well, but these are the major factors they will be looking at. However, it is possible that your pain is more severe than medical evidence suggests it should be. For example, medical evidence for conditions such as back pain and arthritis may have a poor correlation with your symptoms. The decision maker will consider your personal statements in these cases instead of outright rejecting your claim. You should work with disability lawyers Charlotte NC residents have learned to trust to prove to the Social Security Administration that your pain truly does keep you from working.
