Physical Injuries and Disabilities


Many physical injuries and disabilities such as amputations, cerebral palsy, eye sight problems, nerve disorders and spinal injuries are recognized by the Social Security Administration (SSA) as qualifying conditions for receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. However, other disorders such as chronic headaches are not automatically recognized, but you or your loved one still may qualify for benefits.

The Social Security Administration evaluates each physical injury or disability case individually to determine whether or not the effects of the injury, disability or treatment would preclude you from doing any kind of work for a period of at least twelve months. We’ve listed many of the qualifying conditions on our website, but the circumstances of each injury and disability are unique.

At the Law Offices of Harold W. Conick & Associates Ltd., we are experienced in handling social security disability claims related to physical injuries and disabilities including but not limited to chronic headaches, amputations, cerebral palsy, eye sight problems, nerve disorders and spinal injuries. We understand what the SSA is looking for when evaluating claims, and are here to be your tough advocates regardless of the level of your appeal.

We also realize that this is a difficult time, and are here to answer your questions. For more information or to schedule a free consultation, contact us today.
