South Texas Lawyer Helping Clients Prove Their Disabilities

Your entire Social Security Disability claim rests on proving your impairment to the Social Security Administration (SSA). If the SSA is not convinced your disability exists and that it is substantially limiting you from working, you will not be eligible for disability benefits.

A Local South Texas Attorney Helping Clients Prove Their Disabilities

Attorney Kathleen Day has been representing clients in front of the local Corpus Christi SSA office for almost 20 years. During that time, Ms. Day has developed good working relationships with local SSA office staff, SSA attorneys and the administrative law judges who make benefits determinations. She knows what it takes to prove her clients' disabilities entitle them to benefits and works hard to make sure clients get the benefits they need.

One of the most important aspects of proving your disability is medical evidence.

Our firm has a wide network of medical experts we use to evaluate our clients' impairments and testify on their behalves. Lawyer Kathleen Day also works closely with our clients' treating physicians, physical therapists and psychologists and psychiatrists to gather and present compelling medical evidence that the SSA cannot ignore.

South Texas Attorney Assisting Clients In Providing Evidence Of Impairment

The SSA maintains a list of medical impairments that automatically qualify as disabilities. In order to prove your impairment rises to the level of a disability, you must prove your impairment falls into one of these published categories. If your disability is not included on the SSA list of impairments, additional steps will be needed to prove your impairment entitles you to disability benefits.

Disabilities can be physical, mental or emotional in nature. Due to the vast differences in types of impairments, different techniques are required to prove different impairments exist.

Physical impairments — such as neck and back pain, arthritis, cancer, diabetes and carpal tunnel — are visible to the naked eye or through X-rays and MRIs, and are often easier to prove.

Mental illnesses and emotional impairments — such as schizophrenia, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and bipolar disorder — are more difficult to prove. In order to prove these impairments, more involved, complex methods of proof are required, including medical expert and vocational expert testimony, and work history.
