Your Medical Records and Your Social Security Disability Claim

Your medical records are reviewed at the initial application and the reconsideration stage by a medical consultants. What do they do?

They don’t render a diagnosis, but what they do is read your records and determine your restrictions and limitations and your ability to engage in work activity.

The medical consultant is trying to determine whether you have the physical or mental capacity to return to one of your former jobs or to any other type of employment.

Many times, the consulting physician is doing this because in your medical records it is not evident that your doctor has not rendered an opinion about your restrictions and limitations.

At Cavey and Barrett, we submit to your treating physicians forms called residual functional capacity forms for them to complete. We’d rather have your treating physician render an opinion about your physical abilities than a physician who has been hired by the Office of Disability Determinations to review records.

More often than not, these physician consultants will opine that you are capable of doing light or sedentary work and capable of going back to work. That only means one thing- a Social Security claims denial.

If you are applying for Social Security Disability benefits or your claim for benefits have been denied, contact Social Security Disability attorney, Sharon Barrett, who practices in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area.

They will send you a letter confirming receipt of your case and will review it to see whether or not hey can issue a favorable decision without scheduling a hearing. If not, you get to wait in line as your case waits its turn to be prepared for hearing.

You will receive notification from ODAR of the hearing date in the mail 20 days in advance and if you have an attorney, such as Social Security Disability benefits denied attorney Sharon Barrett, they will also be notified.

It is important in this twenty four month period of time that you continue to get medical treatment and that medical records be obtained to document your continuing disability.
