Have You Suffered a Disabling Injury?
The Social Security Administration considers many factors when determining SSD/SSI eligibility. The largest of these involves a laundry list of mental and physical medical conditions that prevent individuals from returning to work. These impairments may involve injury, illness or chronic pain, and include, but are not limited to:
- Back and neck issues
- Complications from diabetes
- Psychiatric issues
- Cardiovascular problems
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Recently, our firm has seen several cases where a claimant suffers from fibromyalgia. This type of condition can be particularly hard to argue on an application. Though symptoms often mimic arthritis, there is no objective medical evidence or testing available to prove its existence.
If you suffer from fibromyalgia or other medical impairment, the attorneys at our Brandon-based firm will work hard to demonstrate your symptoms and limitations. We will do our utmost to show that your disability is severe enough to prevent your return to the workforce.
We Can Help You Obtain Treatment
Proving the severity of your disability is not always clear cut. Many individuals who cannot afford medical attention often go untreated. While this is most obviously harmful to your health, it is also detrimental to your SSD/SSI application. A lack of treatment translates to a lack of evidence that is needed to support your claim.
The Social Security Administration may arrange for you to undergo a consultative examination. However, these doctors are not always sympathetic to your case. At The Golden Law Group, our lawyers will provide you with alternative care options. These may include county aid programs and free clinics.
