What it Means to Have a Disabling Arm Injury
Proving that your arm injury is a disability is our advocates' responsibility once you hire us. But once the disability is proven, in cases with little likelihood of recovery, the responsibility for the financial costs involved in the review process shifts to the government.
If you have an arm injury and you would like to obtain Social Security Disability benefits, your doctor must state that you are unable to work a normal, five-day-a-week, eight-hour-a-day job. Your doctor's opinion must be supported by "medically acceptable clinical and laboratory findings." Unfortunately, many genuinely disabling conditions are difficult to diagnose through objective testing. Our advocates can help you apply for disability benefits — unlike many attorneys, we get involved early in the process to lay the groundwork for a successful claim.
Your disability must last or be expected to last for at least one year in order for you to qualify for Social Security Disability. This is a strict requirement of the Social Security Administration.
