Claims For Physical Impairments Or Mental Impairments
According to the Social Security Administration, disability is legally defined as the inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity because of a medically determinable mental or physical impairment, which can be expected to result in death or, which has lasted, or can be expected to last, for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.
No claim for disability benefits will succeed without proper medical documentation and strong medical evidence. My name is Michael G. Myers and as an attorney, I can help you get the disability benefits you deserve by working with your doctor and by working hard to build the strongest possible case on your behalf. If you suffer from physical and/ or mental impairments that have left you unable to work, contact my law offices.
Does Your Disability Meet or Equal the SSA’s Standards?
Regardless of your mental or physical impairment, what matters to the Social Security Administration is that your disability meets or equals its own definitions of what constitutes a disability.
Mental and physical impairments recognized by the SSA include:
- Spinal impairments, such as back, neck, leg and hand impairments
- Chronic impairments, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease
- COPD and other respiratory disorders
- Auto Immune disorders, including HIV/AIDS and Lupus
- Repetitive stress disorder, including carpal tunnel syndrome from repetitive motion
- Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Depression and bipolar disorder
- Autism and other congenital mental disorders
As your lawyer, I will help you understand the SSA’s definition of a physical or mental disability and how it applies to your situation. I will assist you in getting the proper medical documentation from your doctor and in filling out the Social Security Disability claim application. If you are uninsured, I will also assist you in finding a clinic or a local care facility that can help you deal with your disability and give you the support you need.
You should know, however, that despite my efforts, your SSD claim may still be denied. In fact, most disability benefits are denied the first time around. I will be here to fight for you all the way through the federal disability appeals process, if that is what is necessary to recover the benefits you deserve.
