Back Injury

Do Back Injuries Qualify For Social Security Disability?

If your back pain makes it impossible to work, you may be entitled to benefits from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Unfortunately, qualifying for disability benefits for a back injury can be difficult. It often takes a lawyer’s help to be successful.

At Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler in Charlotte, North Carolina, our SSDI lawyers are committed to helping people fight for the SSDI benefits that they deserve. We have been helping clients secure the SSDI benefits for back injury and other disabilities since 1979. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

What If I Was Turned Down For Disability Benefits?

Most adults have some degree of spinal degeneration after a certain age. However, some people end up with excruciating and chronic back pain that makes it impossible for them to show up for work five days a week.

To qualify for SSDI benefits, your doctor must provide a diagnosis of your qualifying disability. The Social Security Administration (SSA) is very particular about how supporting medical information for your back injury is presented. Our attorneys understand what the SSA is looking for and can help your doctor understand how to present your back injury diagnosis and supporting medical information in a way the SSA will accept.

For example, many people with back injuries have pain in their legs. These people often have to lie down and elevate their legs for 30 or 40 minutes a day on an unscheduled basis, which no job would accommodate. Back pain sometimes leads to depression as well, which can exacerbate the challenges the person is facing.

Our lawyers can help you through the challenging process of applying for SSDI and appealing a denied claim.
