When you are called to testify at your Social Security disability hearing, you may wonder what kinds of questions will be asked and how personal they will be. A Greenville Social Security disability attorney can help you understand what will probably happen at your hearing and what will improve your chances of being approved for benefits.
Why Your Medical History Is So Important
Though the crucial subject of the hearing is your medical history and exactly why you are disabled, you may not be asked any questions by the judge pertaining to your medical history. The judge will already have access to your medical records and the records of any doctor or hospital that has treated you, presuming your Greenville Social Security disability attorney has made sure to file your records with your claim and provide the judge with such records ahead of time.
What the Judge Might Ask You
The judge might choose to ask you questions about your medical history, such as how often you saw your physician and what treatment regime your doctor prescribed. The judge may also ask what medications you have been taking, how effective they are and what side effects you have been experiencing, as well as what treatment you have been undergoing and how many doctors you have seen. The judge will not expect technical medical explanations from you, so don’t assume you have to explain what your doctor says or the details of your medical condition.
