As an Augusta disability attorney will tell you, it is very important to communicate with your lawyer about any paperwork that you receive such as forms and medical records. In most cases, your Augusta disability lawyer will obtain your medical records. You don’t need to get your records yourself unless your lawyer asks you to get them.
What to Do If You Receive Paperwork
If your doctor happens to give you paperwork such as a medical record or you receive a disability form for your doctor to fill out, make sure to give copies to your lawyer. If you get a form from the judge that is supposed to be filled out by your physician, let your lawyer know about the form. Your attorney may ask to see the form.
Sending Paperwork Directly to the Judge
In most cases, you should not send anything to the judge without showing it to your Augusta disability attorney first. There is one exception to this rule. Along with your Notice of Hearing, you may receive a document called an Acknowledgement of Notice of Hearing. You can send the acknowledgement back to the judge without showing it to your lawyer. You should show your Augusta disability lawyer any other forms, medical records or documents that you receive.
Forms from the Judge
The judge may send you forms to fill out about the medications you take and your recent medical history. You should complete the forms right away and then give them to your attorney. Your lawyer will look at them and then send them to the judge for you.
