If Back Pain Keeps You From Working, Seek SSDI/SSI Benefits

Severe back pain can make a normal job an excruciating experience that has to be endured every single day. Fortunately, severe back pain does qualify as a disability and if it prevents you from working, you may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability Insurance/Supplemental Security Income (SSDI/SSI) benefits. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to prove to benefit administrators that you are actually suffering from acute back pain.

If you have questions about filing a claim for SSDI/SSI benefits for back injuries, please call Howard M. Hyman, Attorney at Law, at 215-725-1950 or contact us online. We offer free initial consultations. We have offices in Philadelphia, Jamison and Cherry Hill.

Proving Your Back Pain Is Real

To qualify for SSDI/SSD, you must present objective evidence of your back injury. To that end, we help our clients by scheduling X-rays, MRIs, CAT scans, electric testing and other tests to determine whether there is a visible nerve injury, bone injury or neurological damage causing the pain.

It's Difficult To Seek Physical Disability Benefits — We Understand

Back pain often does not stop at the back — it can radiate throughout the body, bringing numbness or pain to the arms, hands, legs, feet, fingers, toes, neck and shoulders. It can cause a person who was once entirely self-sufficient to become almost fully dependent on others.

At the office of Howard M. Hyman, Attorney at Law, we have helped many clients in this exact position. Mr. Hyman is both an aggressive lawyer and a compassionate counselor who understands and appreciates how legal and personal issues are often inseparable. Rest assured, he will help you take the necessary first step to secure the compensation you deserve.
