How We Analyze Your Disability Case

At the Law Offices of John T. Nicholson, we help people across Ohio understand how the Social Security Administration (SSA) defines disability and how it determines whether an individual qualifies for benefits. Through extensive experience and knowledge of the factors that the SSA employs to make such decisions, we can analyze your situation and put together the best case possible for a positive result.

Every SSD Case Is Unique

Although the SSA uses a consistent protocol to evaluate disability cases, no two claims are alike. Often, perhaps due to the large volume of cases that come through the system, only the most obviously disabled applicants are awarded benefits upon initial application. It is the job of your attorney to look objectively at your case to see where the strengths and weaknesses lie and clearly and convincingly present that information to the SSA.

There Are Many Factors To Consider

The initial interview between you and your Social Security Disability (SSD) lawyer will be the beginning point for analyzing your case. Topics that will be covered include:

  • Your age, work history, education and job skills: There are two reasons for looking at your work history. First, we need to determine if you have sufficient work credits for eligibility for disability benefits. Second, the type of work you have done in the past is relevant in determining what work you may be able to do in the future.
  • Your complete medical history: Supporting evidence, including test results, hospital admissions, medications and all treatment received, is essential information to building your claim.
  • Information from you: How your impairments impact your daily life can be as persuasive in establishing your disability as any other information you can provide.
