Be honest: If you have real injury, and is seeing a trustworthy physician, with documented medical findings, then he should have no trouble getting a successful disability claim. Problems occur when there are totally subjective complaints with no objective findings, discrepancies in the history or contradictory multiple examinations by different providers, dr. Shopping, etc.
