SSD Benefits For Back Injuries & Arthritis in New Jersey
The Social Security Administration will take a number of factors into consideration when awarding SSD benefits. In order to prove your disability, you must document that your medical condition meets the severity found in the Social Security Commissioner’s Regulations. Proving disability depends on how your disability affects your ability to function on a daily basis. If you are unable to work due to one of the following, we can help:
Orthopedic Impairments: From herniated discs and soft tissue injuries to degenerative changes and Marfan Syndrome, the Social Security Administration considers a number of orthopedic impairments that limit an individual’s ability to work.
Spinal Cord Injuries: Typically caused by a trauma to the vertebrae, spinal cord injuries are frequently debilitating, causing pain in the low back and legs, and preventing nerve signals or messages from traveling along the spinal cord to the brain.
Arthritis: The breakdown of cartilage in the joints, osteoarthritis most commonly affects the hands and knees, but it can strike any joint or the back. The Social Security Administration will review how your arthritis causes a loss of function in activities needed for work.
Rheumatoid Arthritis: Different from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or seronegative arthritis can cause complete loss of function in the joints. It can also cause problems with the eyes, mouth and lungs, due to inflammation. If painful and swollen joints are preventing you from functioning in your daily routine, we can help you get proper SSD benefits.
