As Social Security Disability Attorneys, it is our job to help our clients win their Social Security Disability cases. Social Security Disabilty cases are medically driven. In simple language this means that in order to win a Security Disability case you must have medical records documenting the nature and extent of your disability. These records must document a condition that is expected to last at least 12 months. It is a well know fact that Social Security receives more back injury claims than any other type of disability. However back pain tends to be the hardest to prove.

Some of the elements of helping prove a back claim case include but are not limited to:

  1. Claimant’s medical records must show a compelling limitation of motion in the spine.
  2. Documented pain, and muscle spasm.
  3. Radio-graphic evidence of injury including MRI’s, CT scans and x-rays.

The bottom line-If you want to win a back case you must go to the doctor, investigate your injury, treat with the doctor, follow doctors order and comply with any testing ordered by the doctor. Look at it through the Judges eyes. The Judges are overwhelmed with a back log of cases some of which are not well documented. If you do not think you are injured enough to regularly treat with a doctor for your pain, how do you think we can convince a judge to award you disability benefits. Your relationship with your doctor is important because we may need his help in assisting you to get benefits. That’s why its important to treat your doctor and his staff with honor and respect. If you have a legitimate injury, treat regularly and are a compliant patient, then in most cases a doctor will stand behind efforts for benefits and your chances of successfully proving a disability claim are greatly enhanced.

We are here to help you win your Social Security Disability…the more proof that we have from your doctors, the more support we have toward your case. If you or anyone you know is trying to accomplish receiving Social Security Disability benefits please pick up the phone and call us. We are here to help you.
