No matter the type of case you have in Illinois, whether it is a Workers’ Compensation claim, Social Security Disability case, or a personal injury case you need to be believable.
It is important that your testimony is consistent with your medical treatment records.
Your records contain a history of what you tell your doctor each time you receive treatment.
You will need to explain your pain and how it impacts your daily activities.
The Judge also wants to know how your condition permanently limits you.
Even a person with severe conditions can usually do some housework or limited activities. It is important that you can explain how long you can function before you need to take a break.
Being genuine includes having a good work history, explaining clearly the effects of your injury, and how you are limited on a daily basis.
