Disabilities that Get Social Security Benefits
Social Security pays benefits to our clients for many physical and emotional problems. Our legal team has successfully argued for benefits for disabling low back pain, diabetes, depression, arthritis, MS, anxiety, neuropathy, traumatic brain injury (TBI), joint replacements, PTSD, heart attacks, aneurysms, schizophrenia, kidney disease, and many other medical problems.
Our clients get approved for all kinds of physical problems. A common thread, however, is that your physical problems will significantly impact your day-to-day activities for a year of more. Chores are harder to perform. Even simple walking may be difficult. You may tire easily. Whatever physical problems you have, your doctors need to diagnose and regularly treat you. Our disability lawyers will argue why your medical evidence proves you cannot work.
Our clients get approved for many different mental health issues. Mental health issues serious enough to last a year or more can disrupt your daily life. Depression and anxiety, for example, can significantly impact your ability to get out of your home, care for yourself, or do basic daily activities. Your mental impairments need to be diagnosed and regularly treated by mental health professionals. Our disability lawyers use your treatment records to prove you cannot work.
Physical & Mental Disabilities
Many of our legal clients have both physical and mental problems that significantly affect their ability to work full-time. It is common, for example, to have low back pain that also causes chronic pain. This, in turn, can lead to depression. Our disability lawyers counsel our clients to make sure to discuss all their symptoms with their doctors. If doctors do not know your symptoms, they cannot easily diagnose and treat you. Again, all your medical treatment records become legal evidence of your disability.
