Open communication among you, your doctor and your attorney is a critical key to any claim, whether workers’ compensation or Social Security Disability. (The same is true in a personal injury case.) Remember how important it is to be able to express yourself and discuss all problematic medical conditions that challenge you when you talk with your doctor or your lawyer.
There may be some condition that you have become accustomed to dealing with throughout your life — such as depression, diabetes or back pain — that could be a critical piece of information strengthening your claim. Every detail about your health may be the critical piece that prepares your attorney to present your case in the best light.
In addition to being very detailed and thorough as you discuss any debilitating conditions with your lawyer and your physician, do not forget to keep them updated if your health status changes. A good attorney will make a continual effort to keep communication channels open so that you will have the opportunity to share facts that could alter your case.
Clear communication will also help ensure that you are well aware of any impending deadlines or requirements that demand your attention. This is another reason why communication with your law firm is important as you prepare to file a claim, attend a hearing or appeal a denied claim.
