Social Security Disability Cases & Medical Continuation in Mississippi.
In order to be eligible for social security disability benefits in the state of Mississippi, you must prove that you have a disability that keeps you from working at a substantial gainful activity level for a period of at least 12 months. The disability must have lasted or be expected to last at least 12 months.
Most of the clients I have assisted at Chhabra & Gibbs, P.A. have usually already been unable to work for at least 12 months by the time they apply for social security disability. Many have had previous worker’s compensation or personal injuries and have gone through medical treatment during the course of their treatment for those injuries. It is extremely important not just to rely on previous treatment and to get continuing treatment for the issues that cause you to be disabled. You cannot just rely on a doctor saying once that you can’t go back to work or that you have certain restrictions. You must be able to show that your restrictions or inability to work continues. The only way to do this is to continue treatment for those issues to show social security that you continue to have problems in these areas. Social security judges need to see continuing medical treatment documenting the problems you claim keep you from being able to work in order for them to be able to find you disabled.
Many clients applying for disability have trouble getting continuing treatment, as they are not working and many do not have health insurance. There are low cost and free clinics across the State of Mississippi. We can advise you of which clinics may be available in your area.
