Boca Raton Social Security Disability Attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq. has represented many Boca Raton residents in appeals of Social Security Disability claims, before Social Security Judges. The laws and rules which govern Social Security Disability, include those for "non-exertional" limitations. These factors must be considered by a Social Security Judge, as to whether an individual is able to return to work within the national economy:
- Mental/emotional or intellectual impairments. These include the ability to carry out and remember simple instructions; to respond appropriately to co-workers and the public and to deal with changes in routine.
- Hearing, Speech and Communications limitations include the ability to hear, speak or otherwise communicate.
- Postural limitations, the need to elevate legs, inability to bend, knee, squat, stand straight can adversely impact many jobs.
- Reaching and handling limitations may eliminate a large number of occupations, especially in which bimanual dexterity is required.
- Environmental restrictions include noise, dust, irritants, pollutants, smoke or fumes, extremes of heat, cold or dampness.
- Visual limitations, although short of blindness, can have a significant impact on the ability to perform work.
In order for a non-exertional limitation to have an impact on a disability claim, the limitation must result in significant functional deficits. Such deficits might arise from weakness, pain, stress, fatigue, limited use of a body part or function, etc. Social Security Disability Attorney and Lawyer, Randy Zeldin, Esq.,will coordinate with his clients and their medical providers, to obtain the best possible documentation of non-exertional impairments, for presentation as evidence to a Social Security Judge.
A Boca Raton Social Security Disability claimant's subjective complaints must be considered by the Social Security Judge. In order to be credible, they should be consistent with the "objective" medical evidence and with the claimant's activities of daily living (cooking, shopping, etc.). Credibility issues can destroy an otherwise great claim. A skilled Social Security Disability Attorney such as Randy Zeldin, Esq. can assist Boca Raton residents in their testimony before a Social Security Disability Judge, in proving that a non-exertional limitation may preclude employment within the United States national economy.
