Can You Win Your Social Security Disability Case without Medical Records?
Official Transcript: Can I win my case without medical records?
Hi, I am Sharon Christie your nurse attorney for Social Security Disability Benefits. Let’s talk about medical records and how important they are to your Social Security Disability Case. I have talked to a lot of people who will say to me, well you know I just do not go to the doctors. I do not believe in doctors, or I know they cannot help me. Sometimes I can understand why they are saying that why they feel that way, but for a disability case, that means we have no evidence to prove your case. As I tell my clients I cannot prove your case without medical evidence. It is not enough for you to simply tell the Social Security Administration what is wrong with you and why you are not able to work.
There has to be solid evidence to back it up and by solid evidence, I mean medical evidence that shows that you are going to see a doctor regularly that shows the kind of treatment that you are receiving or that you have tried and perhaps had to stop because it did not work. This shows what your overall response to treatment and what the next step is going to be that is all extremely important information when Social Security evaluates your case so when people ask me can I win my Social Security Disability Case without any medical records my answer is pretty easy, no. You cannot we have to have sufficient medical evidence to prove your case, in order to receive the Social Security Disability Benefits you deserve.
