HOW DOES A DISABILITY ATTORNEY HANDLE BAD EVIDENCE?

Bad evidence comprises of those medical records that are not only unhelpful but at times harmful for the disability case. However from an ethical standpoint, the disability attorney is required to submit all the relevant evidence to the social security.

However, a disability attorney is trained to handle ‘bad facts’. In case the medical reports from the doctor do not support you disability case stating that you do not have the true disability and are unable to work, your attorney will ask you questions aimed at limiting the importance of and/or eroding the accuracy of the doctor’s statement.

Another situation of bad evidence arises when there is a conflict between what you said in your hearing and what you wrote in you ADL function report. It is very important to provide true facts in your ADL function report as Social Security often checks applicants’ function reports to assess exactly what they are capable of doing, in case your function report does not properly reflect what you are capable of doing you need to speak to a lawyer. In some situations, a disability lawyer will want to bring a medical or vocational expert witness to your hearing to clarify when the ability to do certain ADLs doesn’t translate into an ability to work.
