Legal Guidance After Serious Leg, Knee and Ankle Injuries
If you have suffered a severe knee injury, ankle injury or other leg injury that prevents you from getting around without help and performing on a job, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. In deciding whether you qualify, a government evaluator will consider factors including how long you will be seriously impaired and whether you can handle any type of work.
If you have applied for benefits and received a claim denial letter, your next step should be to call us at (734) 485-7000 for help. This happens with a high percentage of initial claims, and we have proven hundreds of times that our efforts can make the difference at the reconsideration phase or on appeal.
Determined Advocacy for The Disabled
We will carefully evaluate your claim denial and the likelihood you can win benefits on appeal for a disability related to conditions and procedures such as:
- Injuries calling for joint replacement or total knee or hip reconstruction
- Amputation of your foot or leg
- Fractures of bones such as the femur or tibia, such that movement and weight-bearing capabilities cannot be restored through surgery
For you as the victim of a severe knee, ankle, or other leg injury, it can be important to recognize that:
- A decision-maker in your case may require conclusive evidence that you will be unable to walk without aid for 12 months or longer.
- Evidence of severe chronic pain and other aspects of your overall medical condition may be relevant to your case.
- Submission of objective medical evidence such as MRI results, X-rays and an ongoing treatment record showing marginal or very limited improvement may also be critical to the success of your claim.
