Expect to Get Asked These Questions at Your Social Security Disability Hearing

While every administrative law judge has his or her own way of conducting hearings, there are certain questions that are asked of claimants in every case.

You can expect these questions in your hearing and you and your lawyer should prepare ahead of time by practicing how you will answer. There is simply no reason to end up surprised by standard questions about your physical capacity, your pain level and your activities of daily living.

In this video I offer you examples of questions that you will be asked at your hearing and I explain briefly how you should and should not answer these questions.

I also express my thoughts about how you and your lawyer can best prepare for your hearing and what constitutes an appropriate pre-hearing conference. In my opinion, a lawyer who meets his client for the first time 10 minutes prior to a hearing is not offering adequate pre-hearing preparation.

What To Do When You've Been Injured At Work

Your job is not just something you work hard at but something that is important to your livelihood. That’s why a workplace injury can be so devastating—missed time at work can mean missed paychecks and expensive medical bills.

Enter workers’ compensation. Designed (in many cases) to be the exclusive remedy for injuries that happen on the job, each state is different when it comes to filing claims and collecting these important benefits. The workers’ compensation system can sometimes be complicated with very specific procedural requirements before your claim will be accepted.

For that reason and many others, working with a workers’ compensation attorney can help make sure you get approved for these important benefits.
