What Physical Injuries Or Impairments Are Covered?
To obtain SSDI or SSI benefits, you must have a physical or mental disability that significantly impairs your ability to work. As a general rule, the disability must be expected to last a year or more. A qualifying physical disability claim may include one or more injuries, illnesses or medical conditions, provided they are sufficiently serious to impair your ability to sustain employment.
Common injuries that form the basis of an SSDI application include:
- Back, neck and spine impairments
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Hand and arm impairments
- Damage to internal organs (kidney, liver, heart, lungs)
- Loss of hearing or vision
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue
- Disabling injuries (car accidents, work accidents and other)
If you have suffered a serious injury, do not delay. Contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible to expedite your SSDI application process.
