What Is Evidence of a Total Disability?

Does Your Disability Prevent You From Working?

Are you wondering whether your medical condition, or combination of medical conditions, has reached the point of total disability for purposes of Social Security disability (SSD) or SSI benefits?

At Disability Law Office NW we can help you determine whether you are legally disabled from working. Contact us to set up a free consultation with a knowledgeable lawyer. We serve clients throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Northern California.

Exploring Both Options for Proving Your Disability

Before you can qualify for any type of SSD benefits, we will need to show that you have a total disability — that is, that you are completely unable to work. There are two ways you can demonstrate total disability to the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Our attorneys are not in the habit of putting all our eggs in one basket. We will collect all available evidence in support of either of these pathways toward showing that you are totally disabled, and we will present both sets of arguments to the SSA if applicable.

Assembling the Evidence to Support Your Claim

Evidence of total disability is largely established through medical records and doctors’ opinions. Our firm will work with your doctor to make sure your records are complete, providing as much support as possible for your disability claim.

In many cases, it is necessary to show that a combination of several limitations prevents you from working. Our attorneys will document every relevant factor in your case. Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss what we can do to gather evidence in support of your claim.
