The Credibility/Medical Evidence Equation
Chronic Pain Disorder Disability Claims in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia
Many disabling physical impairments can be shown by clear, convincing, scientific medical evidence. Unfortunately, a number of very real and very disabling chronic pain disorders cannot.
Because of this, your own personal credibility may become an important part of the equation weighed by the SSA or the administrative law judge assigned to your case.
At Robert Peirce & Associates, we understand the realities of chronic pain disorders and through more than two decades of experience, have learned how to overcome the medical evidence problem faced by individuals suffering from chronic pain and fatigue disorders.
If you can no longer perform routine daily activities or work because of chronic pain or fatigue, please don't hesitate to call or contact our firm today for a free consultation with an attorney who can help you file for SSI or SSD benefits.
Recognized chronic pain disorders may include or involve the following:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
Because personal credibility can be so important to success with these kinds of disability claims, our advice is that you start keeping a journal about how the chronic pain or fatigue you're experiencing is affecting you're daily life, how intense the pain is, how much you have to rest, and how difficult it has made work.
We also want to be very clear in saying that you should be completely candid with your doctor about what you're experiencing. Don't downplay the pain. Don't exaggerate it either. Above all, take the medications, do the exercises, see the specialists and follow the medical advice you're given.
As part of the process, our lawyers will work closely with your doctor to balance the equation with as much medical evidence as possible and see that any medical information provided will conform to the requirements of the Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income programs.
