For yourself and others like you — people who are prevented from working by serious back or spinal disorders — navigating the Social Security Disability benefits process can feel like adding insult to injury, an additional burden when you already face pain on a daily basis. It doesn't have to be this way. People throughout the Pacific Northwest (including Washington and California) have found compassionate, experienced advocates in the Portland disability benefits lawyers of JP Law, PC, who specialize in helping those with back injuries. We understand that your claim is about more than filling out paperwork: It is your chance to tell your story of how your pain has impacted your ability to work and provide for yourself and your family. We strive to take the confusion out of this complex process, which is why SSD and SSI claims are the only types of cases that our firm handles.
Experienced Help For SSD For Spinal Disorders
SSDI benefits are available for people who cannot work because of severe back and spinal conditions. Some of these include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Herniated disks
- Soft tissue injuries
Regardless of the specific injury you have, the strength of your claim will come down to how well we can document your back injury or other condition and how it has affected you. This can involve records from doctor's visits as well as X-rays, MRIs, medical opinions and other test results. Your Portland disability benefits lawyer for back injuries will prepare your claim as thoroughly as possible to minimize the time required for you to receive your benefits if you have an eligible impairment.
Fewer than half of all SSDI claims are approved the first time around, which is why having an experienced Portland disability benefits lawyer on your side, especially when you suffering from a back injury, is important. If necessary, we will help you at every stage of the appeals process, giving you as many chances as possible to get the benefits you need.
