Los Angeles SSD Back Disorders Attorney
Southern California SSD Disc Diseases Lawyer
Back and neck pain can be the result of an injury, such as a car accident, slip-and-fall accident or failed surgery. It can also be caused by wear and tear and aging. Whatever the cause, back and neck pain can be severe and debilitating.
At the Disability Rights Law Center, we help people with back and neck pain apply for Social Security Disability/Supplemental Security Income (SSD/SSI) benefits. We understand that it can be difficult to prove that disc pain is disabling; however, our attorney and staff have extensive experience with these cases. We can help you provide the evidence necessary to obtain benefits. For a free consultation, please call 213-784-4386 or contact us online.
Disability Benefits for Disc Disorders
Debilitating neck and back pain is most often caused by a problem with one or more spinal discs. Common disc injuries include:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated disc
- Ruptured disc
- Compressed discs
Pain from these injuries is not limited to the neck and back. You may also experience pain in the arms and legs, as well as numbness or tingling in the extremities. Severe pain may make it impossible to sit or stand for more than a few minutes. Pain and numbness may result in a loss of range of motion or reduced muscle strength.
Any of these issues may prevent you from doing your old job or any other job. To get SSD/SSI benefits, however, you must prove this with medical evidence. In addition to a report from your doctor detailing your condition and limitations, you need X-rays, CAT scans or MRIs.
After reviewing your claim, we can make sure you include the necessary medical reports and evidence in your application. Please call our office at 213-784-4386 to schedule an appointment today.
