I have a PTSD disability hearing, what do I do? How do I prepare for a disability hearing? During my PTSD disability hearing what will they want from me? There are many questions when it comes to a ptsd disability hearing, the first thing is always to understand what you will want to explain to the court. Hearings are limited in time generally to under an hour, it is so important to explain your ptsd and how it effects you within this time frame. Sometimes trying to fit everything into your ptsd disability hearing can be difficult if you don’t have an attorney to assist you.
I prepare my clients for their ptsd disability hearing by explaining that this is the time to explain your condition to the judge. It is not a time to be embarrassed of your condition. Sometimes I find that our meeting before the hearing can alleviate some of the tension. The judge will want to konw what keeps you from working? How does ptsd effect your daily life? Does ptsd prevent you from doing things socially? While many claimants know these things, they just simply get nervous before the judge. My representation of you as a disability attorney seeks to ease those situations, as we can discuss how ptsd effects you in every part of your life, and we can do that before the hearing.
I always meet with my clients at least an hour before their ptsd disability hearing. I explain to the clients that the judge is just trying to determine if your condition keeps you from working. PTSD can be a devastating condition, it is important to explain to the ecourt how it effects you personally, and just talking about your conditions can be a valuable help to the judge hearing your claim.
I look forward to speaking with you.
