Your Buffalo disability lawyer will steer you away from the following two major mistakes by claimants:
- Failure to appeal. More than 50% of applicants fail to deny appeals, and many claimants whose request for reconsideration is denied does not request a hearing.
- Failure to receive the necessary medical treatment. This is not common, but it is still a serious mistake. When those who suffer from long term chronic medical problem don’t experience improvements, they sometimes feel let down by doctors and stop doctor visits. But your Buffalo disability lawyer will urge you keep seeing your doctor for both medical and legal purposes. You need medical treatments if you suffer from chronic medical problems, and records from treatments can be used to prove your disability.
You don’t have to send medical records to the SSA, since they will obtain them by themselves. You have the option of sending them a doctor’s letter, but you should discuss this with your Buffalo disability attorney first. A few people do win their cases by using letters written by their doctors, but because medical issues are generally complicated in disability cases, a doctor may mistakenly offer a wrong impression in his letter. It’s always safe to let your lawyer handle acquisition of medical reports.
