In 2016, our firm was instrumental in helping undo a great injustice passed into law at the request of a few irresponsible employers. The Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down the Opt Out Act on September 13, 2016, as an unconstitutional special law. Dillard’s department store opted out of the Oklahoma Workers Compensation Act when it became lawful to do so on February 1, 2014. Subsequently, many injured workers were denied benefits that would have otherwise been due under the Workers’ Compensation Act. Employers were allowed to deny claims and if the employee sought an appeal the appeal was decided by Dillard’s much like the fox watching the hen house.

SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY

Knowing how the social security disability system in OKC works is key to getting disability benefits. It is important to understand the process, and what will be required to prove your case. Applicants for social security disability can expect no immediate response from the Social Security Administration but rather lengthy delays in the claim process. The key is to include all of the necessary information that helps improve your chances of prevailing with your disability claim.

Here are three tips to help your claim move smoothly through the system and ensure that you have the best chance of winning your disability case.

  1. Apply as soon as possible

The application process for social security case in Tulsa is a lengthy one and can take a year to process. Also, it can take up to a couple of years if you need to request a hearing or appeal an unfavorable decision. Thus, your best bet to win your case is to start out early.

    2.  Hire an attorney

Trying to navigate through your disability claim on your own can prove to be a daunting task. Hiring an attorney betters your chances of a quick and favorable decision, reduces your stress level and improves your chance of winning your disability case, not to mention it’s a cost-effective decision in the long term.

A professional social security lawyer in Tulsa will:

  • Help you understand your case
  • Help you file the paperwork and organize your case
  • Collect accurate medical records for your claim
  • Collect additional information from your physician
  • Work diligently to ensure that your claim is processed quickly and fairly
  1.  Keep careful records of your condition

It is vital to document all your disabling symptoms, including all physical or physiological symptoms. Remember that every symptom may be relevant to your claim. Hence its best to keep all your medical receipts, medical appointments, documents of the medical treatment you have undergone and every prescription you have received. If you suffer from chronic pain keep a careful notebook/diary to record it. Also, if you are experiencing any mental stress or pressure, ensure that you register your mental state in your notebook as well.

The easiest way to help your disability case is to hire an attorney, so you can avoid making mistakes and eliminate any unnecessary stress trying to handle the case independently.
