When you are disabled, the last thing you want to do is file for SSDI benefits only to have your claim denied. When you are preparing to file for benefits, there are several things you can do beforehand that can help your case.
See Your Doctors Regularly
If you see your doctor regularly, you will be able to establish a solid medical history that will allow you to prove that you are disabled.
After an accident, it is a good idea to seek the account of any person that witnessed the collision. However, it is equally important to understand that not every witness account will help your case. In some instances, a witness can hurt a personal accident claim, particularly when it comes to their credibility or lack thereof. Before you put your claim for compensation in jeopardy, make sure you assess just how reliable the witness is.
