Gaining Benefits for Back and Neck Injuries
Our law practice was established in 1991 and Social Security Disability lawyer has been helping people throughout southeast Michigan obtain benefits since 1998. We know from experience that back and neck injuries are one of the most prevalent causes of disability from work and their impact spans across many occupations.
If you have severe back or neck pain that will keep you from working for a year or longer, please call our lawyers at (734) 485-7000 now. We are prepared to offer sound counsel on your eligibility for DIB or SSI benefits — and to pursue an appeal if your valid claim has already been denied.
Well Over a Decade of Success Appealing Claim Denials
A high percentage of initial applications for Social Security Disability benefits are denied, necessitating well-prepared appeals of these decisions. Among the most common reasons for denial is insufficient medical evidence that the injury or condition qualifies as a severe, long-term disability. We succeed for clients suffering from severe neck and back injuries by:
- Obtaining and presenting objective medical evidence of serious physical disability — often including x-rays, CT scans and MRI results that may show herniated disks, vertebral damage or other clear and objective medical problems
- Calling upon physicians and vocational experts as needed to establish that your pulled back or wrenched neck prevents you from working
- Meeting all SSA procedural requirements while preparing thoroughly for our appearance before an administrative law judge or the Appeals Council
