During your disability hearing, your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer has an important role to play. Familiarizing yourself with this role is important in preparing for your hearing.
Disability hearings usually take about one hour, although they can run as long as an hour and a half. During that time, your Ocala Social Security disability lawyers will ask many questions.
You will likely already be prepared for these questions because of previous discussions with your Ocala Social Security disability attorney. However, your attorney will sometimes ask additional questions in order to clarify things for the judge, or to further explain issues affecting your case.
Your lawyer will almost certainly ask questions of any witnesses present, including expert witnesses whose presence are required by the judge. However, much of the work with witnesses is done outside the hearing—when medical evidence is being gathered, doctors’ reports are being collected, and other legal and medical investigations are undertaken. Another key part of your lawyer’s role is preparing any witnesses you plan to have at the hearing.
A Social Security disability hearing is an important part of the claims process, and learning how to prepare for it is in your best interests.
