Obtaining Benefits for Spinal Cord Injuries
Whether due to injury or disease, damage to the spinal cord can be life-changing and career-ending. Loss of function and mobility may be isolated or widespread depending on the extent and location of the injury. Severe pain can restrict activities and prevent the spinal cord injury sufferer from performing work that was once routine.
If you cannot work for a year or longer due to a spinal cord injury or debilitating spinal condition, you may be entitled to Social Security disability benefits. An initial DIB or SSI claim denial does not mean you are out of options. At William C Babut PC, an experienced attorney is prepared to analyze your eligibility for benefits or actively pursue an appeal on your behalf.
Medical Knowledge to Understand Your Spinal Cord Injury or Condition
Our Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti spinal cord injury lawyers maintain offices throughout Southeast Michigan to help people obtain government benefits critical to their basic well-being and continued treatment. We are here to help you pursue your valid benefits claim arising from:
- A back injury such as a ruptured disk or herniated disk, resulting in debilitating pain that can worsen with time and activity
- Any spinal cord injury — most often caused by trauma — that seriously restricts mobility or prevents feeling/sensation
- Diseases such as polio or spina bifida that cause ongoing loss of function and other impairments
- Neurological impairments due to spinal cord injury or disease
Proving That Your Disability Qualifies You for DIB or SSI Benefits
The way ordinary people talk about their injuries is not the same as the way doctors do. Further, maintaining a comprehensive system for judgment of whether millions of people’s highly specific injuries are disabling is a real challenge. We have extensive experience gathering and presenting medical evidence that meets SSA criteria and can lead to success with your claim.
