Clients and potential clients often ask what is needed to win their Social Security Disability claim. The answer is simple: evidence. Although disability proceedings are much different than the typical court cases depicted on television, they have remarkable similarities when it comes to the need for evidence--simply put, without evidence, it's going to be very hard to prove whatever it is you're claiming.
It may seem obvious to some, but disability applicants often fail to have this one key component. The evidence in disability claims comes in the form of medical records and information from doctors and medical professionals that have treated you. Almost anyone can say they suffer from a debilitating disease. That's the easy part. Proving it is the challenge--and that's why the disability process can often be difficult. Even the best representatives cannot win a disability claim without evidence!
A recent potential client contacted us seeking help with a disability claim. As with every potential client, we gathered his background information regarding his alleged disability. He indicated that he did not have any medical records to back up his alleged disability, and only sporadically saw a health care provider. We explained the process to the potential client, and indicated he would struggle to have a successful claim without evidence in the form of medical records and a supportive opinion from a treating doctor. Apparently, it wasn't the first time he had heard this; he was quick to let us know that all other representatives he contacted had told him the same thing: without evidence, he did not have a case.
