Do I have a good disability case in Springfield Missouri?

Don’t take offense when a Springfield Disability lawyer gives you an honest assessment and tells you your case is weak.

I have spoken to a couple people this week to took great offense when I told them their potential SSA disability case was likely not going to be successful. Believe me these are not conversations that I look forward to. There are many factors that go into the answer of “do I have a good disability case in Springfield Missouri?” Some things that you have to keep in mind.

1) YOU have to PROVE you’re disabled.
It is not SSA’s job to prove you are disabled. If you do not accept this fact, it is likely that your results are not going to be as you hope.

Is it in your medical records? No? You need to document your problems. “My doctor told me…” is going to get you nowhere. Don’t fool yourself otherwise. Document, Document document. This cannot be stressed enough. You cannot have too many medical records.

Poor work history? You need more medical evidence than someone that has a good one.

Think your disability is a “slam dunk?” Don’t count on it.

2) Don’t confuse how bad you need the monthly benefit check with having a solid case.
See #1 above. You have to prove you are disabled. SSA literally deals with thousands of people every day who need the money just as bad as you do.

Don’t fall into the trap of convincing yourself that you have a good case based on your financial need. You need medical evidence and lots of it. Going to the doctor one or twice a year is not enough in 99% of cases before the Springfield Missouri ODAR hearing office.

3) Find ANSWERS to your problems
You don’t have health insurance? As unfair as it is, SSA does not care if you have taken no action to find any. Frankly it proves to them you are not hurting too badly.

Can’t find a doctor. Have you looked everywhere?

Have you applied for Missouri Health Net or contacted your local health department? Have you looked for free clinics or sliding scale treaters? Have you applied for OBAMACARE?

You can’t afford medications. Have you asked about medication plans available through the pharmacy company or local health care providers and pharmacies?

4) Your friend, cousin, neighbor’s successful disability case is irrelevant to yours.

Even though you may believe “there is nothing wrong with them” I can assure you that they had significant medical evidence of their limitations.

Worry about your case, not your neighbor’s.
