SSDI Benefits for Spinal Disability

To qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance, you must be “disabled” according to the Social Security Administration’s (SSA’s) definition. This means you need to have an injury or ailment that prevents you from being able to work (not just your former job, but any substantial gainful employment), and the condition must last or be expected to last at least one year or to result in death. If you suffered a spinal cord injury, you may be able to qualify for disability benefits. Adler Firm, PLLC has decades of experience securing the compensation our clients need after their injuries put them out of work. When you look to our Michigan spinal disability attorney for support, you’ll find that we go above and beyond to put our clients’ minds at ease.

When is a Spinal Injury a Disability?

In the case of spinal conditions, the Social Security Administration (SSA) would consider you “disabled” with one of the following conditions:

  • Nerve root compression, pain, loss of motion in the spine
  • Spinal arachnoiditis, manifested by severe burning or painful dysesthesia, resulting in the need to change postures more than once every two hours and confirmed by a tissue biopsy or medical imaging
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis that results in pseudoclaudication, established by appropriate medically acceptable imaging, manifested by chronic nonradicular pain and weakness, and resulting in the inability to ambulate

If you have a spinal condition that renders you unable to work, there is nothing more valuable for your Social Security claim than an experienced legal team. The SSA has strict and medically complex standards for people looking to qualify for SSDI. At Adler Firm, PLLC, we have more than 30 years of experience. We know how to work your case up from the very beginning and through the appeals stage to help you get the benefits you need.

Medical Terminology

Most petitions for SSDI benefits are denied upon the initial application. A common reason for this involves the medical terminology. A doctor will diagnose a condition that obviously renders the patient unable to work, and everything seems clear and obvious. However, if the doctor doesn’t use the very specific, triggering language required by the SSA, the claim will be denied.

Right from the very beginning of your case, our attorney can work with your doctor to make sure the right terminology is in your medical report. At our firm, we have experience with and an understanding of the medical terminology, so we can help make sure every aspect of your SSDI application is correct, which will greatly increase your chances of obtaining your benefits.
