Stanley Whitehead have a thorough understanding of the claims and appeals process, coupled with a desire to help people just like you to get the benefits they need to survive.
When first meeting with our attorneys, it will be helpful to bring along documentation of your disabling condition, as well as any other documents that may be applicable to your case. Some of the information we will find helpful includes:
Your attorney will need to review your medical records for information to substantiate your disability. To do so, he will need information such as:
- Doctors names/addresses
- Dates of doctor visits
- Lists of medications you are taking
In addition to medical information, your disability attorney will need:
- Current/previous employer information
- Social Security paperwork
- Disability denial or claims paperwork
- Workers’ compensation information (if applicable)
If you have other documentation that you think may be important, it probably is. Taking the time to collect any information you have to bring to your initial consultation with disability attorney can make that first meeting more productive and informative for you and your legal professional.
