Physical Impairment Claims
Downey Physical Impairment Claims Attorney
Southern California SSDI and SSI Claim Lawyers
If you are unable to work due to a physical impairment (disability), obtaining benefits from Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) requires more than medical documentation of your injury or condition. You must also show that the impairment has prevented (or is expected to prevent) you from working for 12 continuous months. If you apply too soon, the Social Security Administration will optimistically predict that you will recover within the 12-month period — and deny your disability claim.
At the Law Offices of Judith S. Leland, our Social Security Disability lawyers offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your physical impairment claim. For your convenience, we have offices in Downey, Orange and Ontario in Southern California.
Successfully Handling SSDI/SSI Claims for a Variety of Disabilities
Our Downey physical impairment claims lawyers have successfully handled SSDI/SSI claims for:
- Arthritis and osteoarthritis
- Joint dysfunction
- Knee and hip replacements
- Shoulder injuries
- Neck injuries
- Repetitive stress injury (RSI)
- Carpal tunnel syndrome due to repetitive use of hands
- Back injuries and disc injuries
- Spinal disorder disabilities
- Chronic impairments such as cancer, heart problems, diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson's disease
A physical impairment by itself may not prevent you from working, but it may be disabling when combined with other impairments. One example would be severe arthritis combined with depression. The Social Security Administration must see you as a whole person when deciding your case. Therefore, it is important to tell your disability attorney about all of your impairments.
