Was Your Life Changed By A Spinal Injury?

Few things impact your life as completely as injuring your spine or spinal cord. While these injuries are mostly commonly associated with car accidents and other blunt trauma, they can also result from disease. When applying for federal benefits, the most important aspect is not what caused the injury, but what impact the injury has had on your ability to work.

At Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, we will carefully evaluate your medical history, recommend additional follow-up if necessary, and guide you through the entire process of applying for Social Security Disability. We have successfully secured benefits for clients throughout Wisconsin, and we hope to do the same for you as well.

Different Spinal Injuries, Different Eligibility

Spinal injuries have a wide range of impact, from full paralysis to compromised motor function to cognitive disability. Many kinds of spinal injuries automatically qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, but not all of them do. Here are some different qualifying scenarios for this physical condition, though there are certainly others:

  • Muscular disability
    Some spinal injuries affect your ability to move because of chronic pain and weakness, such as degenerative disk disease, spinal stenosis and osteoarthritis. In this case, you must show that your condition causes sufficient discomfort and motion restrictions that you cannot work.
  • Neurological disability
    Other spinal injuries impact your nervous system. This includes paralysis and loss of limb function, but also covers situations in which someone cannot process information effectively.
  • Residual functional assessment
    For spinal conditions that do not fit neatly into other categories, you can still qualify for benefits if you can show that the sum total of your limitations prevents you from resuming previous employment or performing any other job that may become available.

Diagnosis Is Not Enough – You Need Impact Documentation

It may seem like being diagnosed with a spinal injury should be enough to qualify for Social Security Disability, but it is not. While diagnostic medical records are a crucial part of the process, you must also provide verifiable documentation about exactly how the injury impacts your life. Our attorneys will work with you to procure the appropriate documents for your specific condition. When the impact is presented correctly to an SSDI or SSI evaluator, it can make the difference between receiving benefits and being denied.

Get The Help You Need For Your Disability Claim

While the application process for federal disability benefits is complex, our lawyers know the landscape well and can avoid common pitfalls. Email us to discuss your situation or else call our office: 1-855-NICOLET.

We practice throughout Wisconsin, including Hudson and Eau Claire.
