Are You Suffering from an Orthopedic Injury?

Published on August 24th, 2018

Did you know that an orthopedic injury may be grounds for obtaining disability benefits? At Jeffrey A Rabin & Associates, Ltd., our Illinois disability lawyers are well-versed in what orthopedic injuries may qualify for disability and we can help you present your case in the best way possible in front of a judge. There are a wide variety of orthopedic injuries that could qualify, especially if they impact the way in which you are able to move and perform simple, everyday tasks. Here are some common orthopedic issues that qualify depending on the severity:

  • Scoliosis, or sideways curvature of the spine
  • Spinal stenosis, or the narrowing of the spaces within your spine
  • Nerve damage
  • Ruptured discs in your neck or back
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Scarring that occurred as a result of previous surgeries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome, or a pinched nerve in your wrist that causes your hand and wrist to tingle and go numb
  • Arachnoiditis, or a pain disorder caused by inflammation of one of the membranes that surround and protect the nerves of your spinal cord
  • Back, arm, neck, ankle, leg, foot or hand injuries/pain

Proof is Key

Pain is subjective, so the Social Security Administration requires specific medical evidence in order to qualify. Our Illinois disability lawyers can help you with this process and make sure that you have everything you need in order to be successful in your case.

Let us help you craft a strong application for social security benefits! Schedule a free initial consultation with us to see how we can help you.
