Disability from Spinal Cord, Neck or Back Injury
The human spine is a marvel that we take for granted until an injury occurs. The lost sensation, impaired mobility or chronic pain from a back injury makes everyday life one challenge after another. As a result, returning to the workforce may not be possible.
The law firm of Rogers, Hofrichter & Karrh has represented hundreds of clients in their Social Security disability claims for spinal cord injury, back injury or neck injury. We serve the Metro Atlanta area and are able to handle cases across Georgia. Call us today at 877-572-3949 for a free consultation.
SSDI and SSI Spinal Injury Claims
If you were recently injured or have not been able to recover from a back or neck injury, we can help you document a claim for Social Security disability. If your claim has already been denied, we provide the proven legal advocacy to fight for the benefits you need. Our attorneys bring 20 years of focused experience in spinal cord and spinal column injury claims:
- Paralysis (paraplegia, quadriplegia, hemiplegia, paraparesis)
- Herniated disc
- Degenerative disc disease
- Fractured vertebrae (cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral)
- Ligament damage
- Pinched nerves and sciatica
- Chronic, debilitating back pain
We are intimately familiar with the anatomy and medical jargon of spinal cord and spine injuries, the common therapies and surgical interventions, and the profound impact on our clients' lives. If your disability is permanent or will keep you from working for 12 months, Social Security disability kicks in. We coordinate all your claims, such as long-term disability coverage or workers' compensation benefits.
Documenting the Disability
A spinal cord injury or neck or back injury does not automatically entitle a person to benefits — many paralyzed people lead productive lives and many people work again after surgery. We help clients prove that they are not merely limited but physically unable to sustain work because of the injury itself or the domino effects on their health. We work closely with surgeons, neurologists, pain specialists, rehabilitation specialists and vocational specialists to demonstrate that our clients meet the criteria for Social Security disability or SSI.
Spinal cord injury and back/neck claims make up about one-third of our SSDI cases, so we have probably handled (and won) a claim very similar to yours. Our lawyers are knowledgeable, proven and committed to fighting for the benefits you deserve. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.
