Social Security Disability and Expert Testimony via Telephone
In some Social Security Disability hearings, Administrative Law Judges arrange to have vocational experts or medical experts testify by telephone.
This presents a problem because it is often difficult to hear the expert and the expert’s body posture and demeanor cannot be observed. This makes it difficult for an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer to cross examine the expert.
A recent court decision has given guidelines so experienced Social Security Disability attorneys can handle this problem.
The court finds that timely objection must be made insisting that the expert either be physically present or visibly by video conference. On the other hand one can agree to have an expert’s testimony taken by telephone.
