Getting a Lawyer In Your Social Security Disability Case – What Will You Be Asked at Your Initial Appointment | Pinellas County Social Security Disability Attorney

The third area of questions you will be asked in the initial consultation with a Social Security Disability lawyer is about your pain. Pain is a non-exertional impairment under the Grids used at  Hurdle 5: Other Work and your attorney will want to explore your pain in detail. The attorney is not being nosy but needs this information to help develop this non-exertional impairment. These questions will include:

1. When did your pain begin and what event caused your pain?

2. What does you pain feel like?

3. How often do you have pain on a daily, weekly or monthly basis?

4. Does your pain increase, decrease, or stay the same with:

  • lying down
  • sitting down
  • standing
  • walking
  • bending

5. Is there anything else you do that increases your pain?

6. Has any treatment helped your pain? What treatment?

7. Rate your pain on a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 being no pain, on average on a good day and a bad day.

Medications are the next topic that will be discussed in the initial consultation. For more information, and for more help with your claim, click here or call 727-894-3188.
