Social Security is famous for sending out a large number of questionnaires.
They cover anything from daily activities, work history, headaches, pain to drug and alcohol abuse.
They are very important because the people who review them are using your medical records and your answers on the forms to determine your level of functioning.
This ultimately leads to a decision on whether or not you are disabled.
It is important to know why the questions are being asked.
It is also important to understand how the answers fit into the rules and law and why certain answers may mean you are disabled or not.
Do not attempt to answer the questions on the forms without guidance from an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer.
Misunderstanding a question may result in you being found disabled.
Custom legal services means that your lawyer is sitting down with you and going through the questions with you so that you understand why it is being asked and making sure that you are giving Social Security a complete and honest picture of your limitations and past work history.
It is also important to fax your answers to the Social Security office listed on the forms. This insures timely filing of your answers and that they are sent directly to your electronic file without them being lost.

A lawyer who will meet with you before your hearing is very important.
It makes certain that you are comfortable and prepared for the most important part of your case.
Testimony before the Judge or Arbitrator will be crucial in determining whether you will win your case and the value of your case.
Some lawyers will not meet with you until the date of the hearing.
This will not help you be ready for your case.
Another important factor is to find a lawyer who will travel to your hearing wherever it is.
Many trial sites are spread throughout the State of Illinois.
You must have a lawyer who will travel and be ready to present your case whenever it is necessary.
Legal help that focuses on you gives you confidence and peace of mind.

A couple of examples of what it looks like to get the legal help you need when you are injured.
Social Security sent out two sets of questions with a total of over 15 pages to a lady who experiences severe ongoing pain each day.
I sat down with her and went through each question and made sure that she understood why the question was being asked and how it applied to her daily life and her past work life.
When we were finished I faxed in the forms directly to the SSA office handling her claim so the forms would go directly into her file as soon as possible and not be lost.
Another client was unable to get a ride to his hearing. I took him to the hearing and we were able to go over his testimony once again on the ride to the Judge’s office and discuss what the Judge was looking for and what questions she would ask.
This is what legal help that is important to you looks like and it is crucial because it meets your needs and helps you do the best you can to win your case.
