Understanding Disability

When people are out of work due to a medical condition, they may be worried about how much their disability lawyer will cost. This worry can deter some from getting the help they need. Disability is a complex issue. While great strides have been made in improving accessibility for those with disabilities, much work is still needed. Disability can affect people in many different ways, and two people with the same disability can experience it very differently.

Our Albuquerque disability lawyers at Decker Griffel are dedicated to helping those seeking Social Security disability benefits, and we offer an empathetic approach when working with you. We understand how complex the process can be and will fight to get you the benefits you deserve. We also represent denied claimants at hearings before an administrative law judge.

What is Needed to Prove Disability

The proof for a disability claim is far more complex than simply documenting your limitations. The SSA requires objective testing results, physicians' treatment notes, hospital records, and medical literature. They may also request questionnaires and reports that speak to your specific condition and how it affects your ability to perform work.

Obtaining this information can be a confusing process, especially if you’re unsure of where to start. That’s where we come in—we’ll assist you in gathering the right documentation for your case and help you obtain expert opinions from respected medical consultants to support your case. This can include a detailed analysis of your impairment as it impacts your ability to walk, stand, sit, and carry objects. It can also show how your impairment affects your mental functions, such as attention, concentration, and memory. Decker Griffel in Albuquerque will assist you every step of the way.
