Oak Creek Social Security disability attorney

If you or a loved one have suffered physical or mental impairments that have affected your ability to work, you may rely on public benefits to meet your needs. Social Security disability benefits can provide you with much-needed financial assistance, and depending on your age, your work history, and other factors, you may qualify for either Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Unfortunately, the majority of Social Security disability applications are denied. You can appeal the denial of a disability claim, but when doing so, you should be sure to understand the types of evidence that may play a role in your case, including opinions from your doctor or other medical experts.

How Are Opinions from Different Medical Sources Evaluated?

During a Social Security disability case, multiple different forms of medical evidence may be considered. In addition to reports made by one or more doctors or medical professionals that you see regularly, you may also be examined by other medical experts. Physicians, psychologists, optometrists, podiatrists, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, advanced practice registered nurses, and physician assistants may be considered acceptable medical sources that may provide opinions about your condition. The Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) who hears your case will need to weigh the evidence provided by different sources to determine whether you meet the qualifications for disability.



  • Thank you so much Jonathan. I was so tired of waiting almost 2 years for my disability hearing and you told me always stay positive and to not give up. You met with me before my hearing and told me what to expect and when you told me the judge approved my case I was so relieved! The Social Security disability payments I get allow me to keep seeing my doctors and really help us out. Thank you!
