There are many disabling conditions that a person can be stricken with. You need to be protected from additional loss. The financial stress that disability inflicts is severe. The deadlines and procedures that must be met are strict. The burden of proof is on you. And there is no reason to try to meet all of this without an attorney.
Below are a few of the many conditions that warrant disability benefits:
Back and Spine
Social Security often denies claims based on back pain, because only you know how bad the pain actually is. With the right evidence, we can win back pain cases.
Injury and damage to nerves–and the pain that goes along with it–can be hard to measure. This can make a case hard to win. But handled correctly, an appeal can be won.
Seizure cases are difficult. Social Security wants evidence that your seizures have been witnessed by medical personnel–not family or friends. Winning a case requires presenting good evidence.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Chronic fatigue appeals can be difficult. The cause of the disease is unknown, and there is no test that definitively identifies its presence. It takes work.
Social Security denies most claims for psychiatric disabilities. Depression and anxiety, autism spectrum disorder, slowness in thinking–these and others are often denied.
