his on the job accident or medical care, but it was hugely important to the ultimate decision in his Social Security case.
The Administrative Law Judge found that these “impairments could reasonably be expected to produce the alleged symptoms.” Furthermore, his medications made him “groggy” and tired, and he could only walk a short distance before needing to stop and rest. The Federal judge further found the disabled worker’s statements concerning the intensity, persistence and limiting effects of these symptoms “credible.” A treating doctor opined that the claimant, as the result of his medical problems, “was unable to sustain an 8 hour work day for 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year.” With this record, the judge found the claimant “unable to perform any past relevant work or other jobs that exist in significant numbers in the national economy.”
The Federal Administrative Law Judge awarded three years of back due benefits, as well as continuing monthly payments. The claimant’s state workers compensation claim also remains open. An experienced Workers Compensation lawyer who regularly appears before the Social Security Administration will often coordinate Federal disability benefits for those no longer able to work at their past calling or any other jobs found in significant numbers in the national economy. If you or someone you know or care for has become disabled as the result of a disease or several disabling conditions, it is imperative that you get an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer.
