What Orthopedic Injuries Qualify for Disability?

Published on May 21st, 2018

You may not typically associate an orthopedic injury with disability, but they can have a huge impact on how you live on a daily basis. Our disability lawyers near Aurora have the experience you need to prove your orthopedic injury is more than an injury, rather, a debilitating condition that has severe physical, mental and emotional havoc on your life. Here are some common injuries and how to go about building your case.

Hip Injuries

Hip injuries are especially debilitating because of how much of a factor they play in your body’s skeletal structure. Regardless of your body’s position, your hips carry most of the weight. If you or a loved one has gone through a hip replacement that has failed, you may be eligible for social security disability. Other hip-related disability qualifications include a fractured pelvis or femur as well as arthritis and other diseases that cause degeneration.

Back Injuries

There is a wide variety of back injuries that our disability lawyers near Aurora encounter. Some examples include osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, vertebral fractures, degenerative disk disease, herniated nucleus pulposus and nerve root compression. It’s important to note that your back injury needs to prevent you from working for at least 12 months. Our lawyers can help you navigate the process of building your case, including compiling evidence.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

If your job requires you to repeat a set of motions on a daily basis, there’s a chance you may develop carpal tunnel syndrome. Although it is rare that carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms persist for one continuous year, our lawyers can fight for your case.

Contact our disability lawyer near Aurora if you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating orthopedic injury.
