How Does The VA Rate My Arthritis Disability?
 
03:24
U.S. soldiers and veterans have been significantly affected by osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when cartilage—the connective, structural tissue in the body—breaks down. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that attacks the lining of the joints. Both types of arthritis are painful and sometimes debilitating. Soldiers are at an increased risk for osteoarthritis because the wear and tear on their joints can be extreme and excessive. Those on active duty face rigorous training, multiple deployments, and carry heavy equipment and body armor that can create intense pressure on joints and contribute to arthritis. In the early years of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, service personnel carried between 80 and 120 pounds of gear. Additionally, combat wounds such as joint injuries from shrapnel and broken bones from roadside bombs can eventually lead to osteoarthritis. In active service personnel under 40, osteoarthritis is the leading cause of disability and medical discharge, and those on active duty as well as veterans are two times more likely to suffer from osteoarthritis than civilians. Because arthritis is so prevalent in soldiers and veterans, the VA has determined that this condition is service-connected if diagnosed within a year of discharge. However, if symptoms of arthritis present themselves in later years, you may still be eligible for VA disability. If you have service-connected arthritis, a VA rating specialist will look at the following factors when determining your rating: functional loss, instability and pain. . If you have service-connected arthritis, a VA rating specialist will look at the three main factors when determining your rating. The first is functional loss. This factor focuses on the limitations of the joint’s range of motion. For example, the VA rating specialist will evaluate an arthritic knee by its ability to perform normal, working movements. The second factor the VA will look at is instability. The VA rating specialist will categorize instability of the joint in three ways: slight (10%), moderate (20%), or severe (30%). And the last factor is pain. Most veterans with arthritis experience pain. While the VA rating system doesn’t usually recognize pain as a disability, it may be factored in for arthritis—especially if it affects the knee. The VA may recognize that the pain is impacting your ability to use that joint If you suffer from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, and your symptoms make it difficult or impossible to sustain gainful employment, you may be eligible for VA disability benefits. Call us at Cuddigan Law for a free evaluation of your situation. And if you have applied and were denied benefits, don’t give up. We can also review your case to see if you have grounds to appeal the denial.

Winning VA Disability Benefits for a Joint Injury
 
01:46
Leg, knee, ankle, hip, and shoulder injuries are among the most common types of injuries suffered by military personnel. One study found that almost 60 percent of injured Army veterans who were unable to resume their military duties after an injury were suffering from a muscle, bone or joint injury. Situations like rough helicopter or aircraft landings, vehicle accidents, and the onset of arthritis are just a few of the causes of debilitating joint damage which can happen to a service member. Because many veterans have lived an active lifestyle joint injuries can be especially discouraging. If a service-connected injury is keeping you living the life you once enjoyed, you may be eligible for VA disability benefits. VA claims for joint injury can be complex because range of motion plays a huge part in the evaluation of your disability. Disability rating for injuries to all joints—leg, knee, ankle, hip, and shoulder—are based on range of motion, not the degree of pain the injury causes or the dosage of medication needed for relief. If you have a service-connected joint injury and were turned down for VA disability benefits, it is important to get immediate help with the next step, which is an appeal of the initial decision. And we can help. Call us at Cuddigan Law for a free evaluation of your case.

According to the VA 2015 Annual Benefits Report, over 395,000 veterans currently receive VA disability benefits for degenerative arthritis of the spine. Injury and joint overuse, both common among veterans, can contribute to degenerative arthritis.   It is important to note that both degenerative arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis  may be eligible for presumptive service-connection if symptoms appear within one year of discharge from military service. A veteran only needs to show that the condition is at least 10 percent disabling, and that symptoms began within one year of discharge. ★ JOIN US IN OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU AND OUR FELLOW VETERANS ★ ▶ facebook.com/VET2VET ▶ twitter.com/VET2VET ▶ youtube.com/c/VET2VET

If you know someone who needs to see it, share it.Leave a comment below with your thoughts. “Chronic Pain Syndrome with Depression” A Lifestyle Impact Claim is a high-value secondary claim that many veterans are eligible for due to one or more primary service-connected disabilities. Most veterans, lawyers, and VSOs DON’T know about secondary claims, which are eligible for compensation under the law. A Lifestyle Impact Claim provides a veteran with additional compensation if a current primary service connected disability has impacted or limited your life in some way. This could be occupational, social, or recreational impairment. To qualify for a Lifestyle Impact Claim, you must have a primary service connected disability rated 0% or higher, and that primary disability must be significantly affecting your life in a negative way. For example, you may have chronic pain due to your service connected back problems. Because your back pain is chronic and reoccurring, you can no longer run, lift weights, bend over, or golf. The result of this chronic pain is that you’ve become depressed, have gained weight, and no longer enjoy recreational activities. A Lifestyle Impact Claim is actually a mental health claim, which will be classified under the law as “Chronic Pain Syndrome with Depression.” We can help you file for and win your Lifestyle Impact Claim.

Patellar Tendonitis VA Disability Rating - Patellar Tendonitis - NEObracex
 
03:53
Click Here: http://neobracex.com/p/pt5809/ For a great offer on Patellar Tendonitis Va Disability Rating Patellar tendonitis is a common overuse injury, caused by repetitive stress on your patellar tendon. The stress results in tiny tears in the tendon, which your body attempts to repair. But as the tears in the tendon multiply, they cause pain from inflammation and weakening of the tendon. Constant jumping, landing, and changing direction can cause strains, tears, and damage to the patellar tendon. So kids who regularly play sports that involve a lot of repetitive jumping-- like track and field (particularly high-jumping), basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, running, and soccer-- can put a lot of strain on their knees. A combination of factors may contribute to the development of patellar tendinitis, including: Physical activity. Running and jumping are most commonly associated with patellar tendinitis. Sudden increases in how hard or how often you engage in the activity also add stress on the tendon, as can changing your running shoes. Tight leg muscles. Tight thigh muscles (quadriceps) and hamstrings, which run up the back of your thighs, can increase strain on your patellar tendon. Muscular imbalance. If some muscles in your legs are much stronger than others, the stronger muscles could pull harder on your patellar tendon. This uneven pull could cause tendinitis. In jumper's knee, the patellar tendon is damaged. Since this tendon is crucial to straightening the knee, damage to it causes the patella to lose any support or anchoring. This causes pain and weakness in the knee, and leads to difficulty in straightening the leg. For mild to moderate jumper's knee, treatment includes: Resting from activity or adapting a training regimen that greatly reduces any jumping or impact. Icing the knee to reduce pain and inflammation. Wearing a knee support or strap (called an intrapatellar strap or a Chopat strap) to help support the knee and patella. The strap is worn over the patellar tendon, just beneath the kneecap. A knee support or strap can help minimize pain and relieve strain on the patellar tendon. Elevating the knee when it hurts (for example, placing a pillow under the leg). Anti-inflammatory medications, like ibuprofen, to minimize pain and swelling. Massage therapy. Minimum-impact exercises to help strengthen the knee. Rehabilitation programs that include muscle strengthening, concentrating on weight-bearing muscle groups like the quadriceps and calf muscles. Specialized injections to desensitize nerve endings and reduce inflammation. Patellar tendonitis can worsen without proper treatment. It will eventually result in degeneration of the tendon. This condition is common in many athletes and affects more than 20 percent of all jumping athletes. Full recovery takes anywhere from six to 12 months after physical therapy. The most important factor in preventing jumper's knee is stretching. A good warm-up regimen that involves stretching the quadriceps, hamstring, and calf muscles can help prevent jumper's knee. It's always a good idea to stretch after exercising, too. Patellar tendonitis is a common overuse injury, caused by repetitive stress on your patellar tendon. As the tears in the tendon multiply, they cause pain from inflammation and weakening of the tendon. If some muscles in your legs are much stronger than others, the stronger muscles could pull harder on your patellar tendon. In jumper's knee, the patellar tendon is damaged.

VA Disability Benefits for Nerve Damage
 
02:40
Commonly known as "nerve damage," peripheral neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves outside the spinal cord and brain. A person with nerve damage can experience prickling or numbness in the fingers and toes that may spread to the feet and hands. In later stages, the condition may cause shooting pains, burning, or throbbing. It's also possible to lose balance and coordination. Thousands of veterans have been disabled because of neuropathy: a condition that has many causes, but can result from exposure to toxic chemicals, infections, and traumatic injury during military service. Proving your eligibility for Veterans' disability benefits is often a challenging and complicated process. And you must prove your condition is service-connected. For those veterans who were exposed to Agent Orange--a chemical used to destroy crops and trees during the Vietnam War--you qualify for presumed disability. Because it's likely that exposure to this chemical caused certain diseases, these diseases are considered "presumptive diseases," and the VA accepts that military service caused the condition. Diabetes is the most common cause of neuropathy, resulting in diabetic neuropathy disability. Because of nerve damage, a person may not sense pain in his toes or feet, and this can result in sores or open wounds that aren't noticed right away. If these sores aren't treated, the person can experience infections that can become quite serious. \n\n Vietnam veterans may qualify for presumed disability caused by exposure to Agent Orange if their condition is brought about by diabetes. Veterans diagnosed with early-onset type 2 diabetes and whose symptoms include nerve damage are eligible. If early-onset peripheral neuropathy occurred within one year of exposure and a veteran is at least 10 percent disabled based on the VA rating schedule, it is assumed that military service caused the condition. If you are a veteran suffering from peripheral neuropathy and need VA Disability compensation benefits, or if you have been denied disability benefits, contact us for a free evaluation of your situation. At Cuddigan Law you have a team of professionals in your corner who will fight for your rights.

Compensation 101: How did I get this rating?
 
03:20
VA uses the Combined Ratings Table to determine a Veteran’s disability rating. VA makes this determination about the severity of a disability based on the evidence submitted as part of a claim, or that VA obtains from military records. VA rates disability from 0% to 100% in 10% increments (e.g. 10%, 20%, 30% etc.). See the Combined Ratings section below for information about how VA calculates disability percentage for disabilities here by visiting http://www.benefits.va.gov/COMPENSATION/rates-index.asp#combined.
Veterans, Don’t Overlook Secondary Disabilities
 
03:44
All too often, veterans applying for disability benefits overlook secondary disabilities and miss out on much-needed benefits they are entitled to. You’re eligible for secondary disability benefits if your illness or injury has caused another different or separate condition. For example, a secondary disability might be depression caused by the loss of a leg in combat. Or suppose a Vietnam veteran is eligible for VA disability benefits because they have diabetes from Agent Orange exposure. Any medical condition that is caused by diabetes is now considered a secondary service-connected impairment. There are two separate categories of secondary disabilities--secondary service connection and secondary service connection by aggravation. Secondary service connection means that a service-connected illness or injury directly caused another illness or injury. For example, diabetes is all-too common among vets. A veteran may be eligible for compensation for a number of conditions that are judged as secondary to Type 2 diabetes such as diabetic neuropathy, coronary artery disease, hypertension and a list of other conditions. These conditions are all eligible for benefits starting when the disease first occurs. To win benefits for a secondary disease or injury, there must be evidence that a service-connected disability directly caused a secondary illness or injury. You’ll need medical evidence and a doctor’s opinion that prove this. Secondary service aggravation is a little different. It is not a condition that is directly caused by a service-connected illness or injury, but was aggravated by it and has now become a medical problem on its own. Let me give you an example. Let’s say you suffered a knee injury while on active duty. These types of injuries are among the most common suffered by military personnel. Then we fast forward several years and you are diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. While arthritis is genetic, your knee injury may have aggravated your arthritic condition. Proving secondary service-connected disabilities can be tricky and unfortunately, the VA often denies secondary service-connected disabilities. To win your case for secondary benefits first you must prove that your initial disability was service-connected, that is, directly caused by your military service. To establish this proof you will want to submit evidence of your diagnosis, medical tests, treatments, and any other relevant evidence. Then you will need to provide evidence of nexus—a connection—between your primary and secondary disabilities. Here it is critical that you have testimony or reports from medical experts to back up your claim. Because filing for disability can be complicated and sometimes frustrating, it’s important to hire an experienced VA disability attorney to help with your claim. There’s no easy formula for addressing veterans’ claims, especially for secondary disabilities. At Cuddigan Law, we examine each case individually, develop the best strategy, and work with you to submit your claim or file an appeal if it’s been denied.

How Does the VA Rate Back Cases?
 
02:33
Back pain is a major cause of disability for veterans. VA disability benefits are available for several types of back and spine disorders. Just like in the civilian world, the major causes of service member back injuries are trips and falls. Because military personnel often work around dangerous equipment and under difficult conditions injuries from falls are common. Sometimes back pain may not develop until years after an injury. Another common cause of back pain is osteoarthritis. Soldiers are at an increased risk for osteoarthritis because the wear and tear on their joints can be extreme and excessive. Those on active duty face rigorous training, multiple deployments, and carry heavy equipment and body armor that can create intense pressure on joints and contribute to arthritis. Other causes of debilitating back pain can include spine issues like herniated discs, bulge discs, and compressed discs. Many veterans think their back pain must be from an activity directly related to training or from wartime experiences. But that’s not the case. For example, if you injured your back in car crash while on active duty you may be eligible for benefits. It does not matter whether or not the crash occurred in a military or private vehicle or whether or not it occurred on or off base. If your back pain interferes with your ability to work, you may be eligible for Total Disability Individual Unemployability benefits. Individual Unemployability benefits pay the same as a 100 percent veterans benefits rating. However, you do not have to have a 100 percent VA disability rating to qualify for Individual Unemployability benefits. Winning VA benefits for back and spine issues can be complicated. But if you have back pain which you believe is related to your time in the service, we can help. Cuddigan Law’s accredited VA attorneys are ready to fight for your rights.

Can you Get Disability Benefits for a Back or Spine Injury?
 
04:09
http://www.disabilitydenials.com/back-disability.html In this video Marc Whitehead, Board Certified Disability Attorney, discusses whether or not it is possible for someone to receive benefits because of a back or spine injury. Some type of back disability effects most people at one time or another, inhibiting their ability to work. While the bulk of back injuries are short term and workers are able to resume their employment, for some people a disability back problem can turn into a life time of pain that effects their quality of life. Back disability claims are routinely challenged by disability insurance companies, The Social Security Administration and The Department of Veterans Affairs. If this has been your experience it may be time to seek legal help, in order to prove you are indeed disabled. If your disability claim is based on a group employee benefits plan or private disability insurance plan the insurance company will do their best to deny your claim based on insufficient medical records and many other arguments. Employee benefits and Private Disability Insurance are governed by very different laws. Determining whether your claim is governed under federal ERISA law is extremely important. The ultimate issue will be whether you can still preform your own occupation, or in some cases whether you can preform any occupation that will pay a certain percentage of your former salary. The Social Security evaluation is different, in that it doesn't focus on a persons diagnosis. Social Security Disability is based on the functional limitations the claimant has. Your back disability must be judged sever enough to prevent you from preforming substantially gainful activity for 12 months or more. The Social Security Administration explains their complex disability determination process in their publication known as The Listings of Impairments. Most back cases are evaluated under section 1.04 of The Listings. Veterans suffering from service connected Back injuries are often denied VA Disability Benefits. If the Veterans Claim is approved it's common for them to be assigned an unsatisfactory disability rating. Neck and Back injury cases are some of the most demanding and disputed VA Disability Cases. The VA offers Veterans an exhaustive guide that describes how back disability and other impairments of the muscular skeletal system are determined and rated. You can find it in the VA publication known as The Schedule for Rating Disabilities. What Type of Back Conditions might qualify for Disability Benefits? While a back disability may refer generally to an injury or disorder of the back and spine area, spinal injuries are back disorders that entail specific damage to the spinal itself, including Nerve Damage to the Spinal Cord. Progressive conditions that often result in spinal injury and back disability are things such as: -Degenerative Disk Disease - Scoliosis - Spinal Stenosis - Bulging or Herniated Disk - Osteoporosis - Sciatica Sometimes the treatment for back and spine injuries can worsen the condition. Pain medications or treatments can also cause disabling side-effects and debilitating symptoms.

Because it is so common, disability insurance companies are more likely to deny these claims. Although it's possible to provide objective diagnostic evidence to prove you suffer from osteoarthritis, such as x-rays, what is more difficult to prove to the disability insurance companies is the extent or severity of your symptoms and why you are disabled from performing your job as a result of the condition. Often, instead of considering the documentation contained within your medical records, they will focus on the lack of information, such as, the doctor is not treating you aggressively enough or why aren't you taking stronger medications if your pain is so severe. One thing claimants can do to help with their claim is to keep a pain journal to document daily pain episodes and triggers. The pain journal can then be presented to your doctor and the doctor can incorporate that information into your medical record. Another challenge is that osteoarthritis is a chronic condition and the disability insurance company may ask, what changed? Why can you no longer work even though you have had this condition for years? Making sure your physician is properly documenting your symptoms and complaints will help overcome this challenge.

Does Fibromyalgia Qualify you for Disability Benefits?
 
05:32
In this video Marc Whitehead, Board Certified Disability Attorney, explains whether or not Fibromyalgia qualifies you for disability benefits. Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that effects about 5 million Americans. Patients suffer intense pain and aching in the muscles and soft tissues throughout the body including specific tender points. Symptoms also include: Fatigue Cognitive Dysfunction Irritable Bowel Syndrome Depression Anxiety The exact cause of Fibromyalgia is unknown and may involve different factors that, when working together, can effect the way the brain processes pain. Events or conditions that are likely to trigger Fibromyalgia are genetics, emotional and physical trauma, and certain illnesses or infections. While Fibromyalgia does not damage the joint or organs the constant pain and fatigue can inflict a devastating impact on your life. Although the pain associated with Fibromyalgia disability is real, there is no lad test or x-ray to measure the findings of Fibromyalgia. Doctors diagnose Fibromyalgia based on the patients symptoms and physical exams. For this and other reasons getting approval for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration, the Department of Veterans Affairs, or your Long Term Disability Insurance plan could be problematic. Social Security Disability Claims Based on Fibromyalgia: If Fibromyalgia prevents you from working, you may be entitled to Social Security Benefits. However winning disability under the SSA disability program can be difficult. The SSA blue book which is the SSA reference manual containing the approval of medical listings of specific impairments does not even include Fibromyalgia. Since there is no medical listing, the Social Security Examiner will attempt to equate your disability with an existing medical listing. They will also consider and give value to accompanying impairments that may be involved, such as: Osteoarthritis Degenerative Disk Disease Lupus However the determining factor for qualifying for Social Security Disability benefits is whether Fibromyalgia or any other impairment effects your ability to work. Long Term Disability Insurance Claims Based on Fibromyalgia: LTD Insurance Benefits for disability based on Fibromyalgia are available under most policies. However many insurance companies are unsympathetic towards policy holders who submit claims based on Fibromyalgia. Insurers tend to view these claims with skepticism. Common reasons for claim denials include characterizing that Fibromyalgia is treatable or, without specific diagnostics to show cause, there is no reason to consider you disabled from sedentary work. Insurance providers often lead you to believe that your case is defeated and you'll have no alternative. They will apply misleading tactics using their own medical records or vocational evaluations to dispute your claim. They may delay the process by not responding or making continual additional demands for information. Also, they may even hold out until forced by the court to give you the benefits that you are entitled to. Veterans Disability Claims Based on Fibromyalgia: Veterans can claim disability based on Fibromyalgia if they can prove it was connected to their service in the military. The VA Schedule for rating disability lists that evaluation criteria for Fibromyalgia under the muscular skeletal system. Disability claim approval and rating levels vary according to several criteria. Such as whether the symptoms are wide spread, on both sides of the body and above the waist, constant or episodic or require continuous medication. Any disability including a mental disorder that is medically determined to be secondary to Fibromyalgia can be separately evaluated. With over 700,000 troops serving in the Persian gulf beginning in august of 1990, countless Veterans came home with symptoms of muscle, joint and bone pain, debilitating fatigue, memory and thinking disorders, emotional distress, and other symptoms indicating Fibromyalgia. As of 2009 the VA identified Fibromyalgia as a presumptive disorder for Gulf War Veterans who meet the criteria of the Va schedule for rating disabilities. These Veterans do not need to prove a connection to their military service and Fibromyalgia in order to receive their benefits. Although Fibromyalgia is considered a presumptive illness securing disability compensation can be tremendously difficult. Many veterans who served in other locations are also disabled by Fibromyalgia.

Does Fibromyalgia Qualify for VA Disability?
 
03:08
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that’s characterized by tenderness and pain in the muscles, tendons, and other soft tissue. Often, there is unexplained, widespread pain throughout the body that can last for long periods of time. Fibromyalgia is a condition that affects approximately five million adults, but studies show that veterans, particularly those who served in the Gulf War, are more frequently diagnosed with fibromyalgia that non-Gulf War veterans and civilians. To qualify for VA disability benefits, a veteran’s fibromyalgia symptoms must have initiated while on active duty in the Southwest Asia Theater of military operations or before December 21, 2021. To diagnose fibromyalgia, a doctor will give you a physical exam where he tests the sensitivity of the your trigger points. There must be widespread pain that has lasted over three months in 11 of the 18 possible points. You must feel pain above and below the waist and on both sides of your body. If you suffer from widespread pain and tender points—with or without accompanying fatigue, stiffness, headache, sleep disturbance, and other symptoms—you will be given a rating of 10, 20 or 40 percent depending on how severe your symptoms are and how well your condition responds to medication and therapy. It’s important to note that you can suffer from other conditions along with fibromyalgia. If this is the case, it’s unlikely that you’ll win a claim unless your fibromyalgia continues after your other conditions have been treated and stabilized for at least six months. The bottom line is if you suffer from fibromyalgia, you may be eligible for VA disability benefits. However, the VA application process can be complicated and sometimes frustrating, so you may want to hire a legal expert to help you. The VA accredited attorneys at Cuddigan Law help veterans obtain the disability benefits they deserve. We understand compensation for conditions like fibromyalgia, and we assist veterans because we appreciate the sacrifice and service they’ve made to our country. If you’re a veteran who experiences flare-ups of widespread pain, stiffness, and trigger-point tenderness, you may be eligible for VA disability benefits for your fibromyalgia condition. We are here to help you. Also if you’ve applied and were denied benefits, call us at Cuddigan Law. We’ll schedule an appointment to discuss your eligibility for compensation.

#SE2E9 The Peripheral Nerves of the Low Back and Legs
 
30:21
The Peripheral Nerves of the Low Back and Legs is one of the most common claims made by Veterans for service-connected disability.  That is because back injury is so common during military service.   Peripheral nerves are the nerves that travel from the spinal cord to the rest of the body. Peripheral nerves that are in the lower back travel into the legs and feet. VA disability claims involving nerves in the lower back and the legs can be complex due to the fact that the larger nerves split off into smaller nerves as they go down the leg. ★ JOIN US IN OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU AND OUR FELLOW VETERANS ★ ▶ facebook.com/VETOVET2 ▶ twitter.com/VETOVET2 ▶ youtube.com/c/VETOVET2

Winning Strategies for Back Pain Disability Cases
 
12:47
How to Win Your Back Pain Case before a Social Security Disability Judge Social Security disability claims arising from back pain are the most common types of cases seen by SSA administrative law judges. If you expect to win, your case needs to stand out - in this video I discuss the factors that are most convincing to judges. Realize as well that because spinal injuries are common, your judge may have undergone back surgery and recovered completely. Of course, judges likely have access to very expansive health insurance with access to top doctors and thorough rehabilitation before returning to a non-physical labor job. When applicable, I focus on my client's long and consistent work history - and I have my clients testify that they would not have left a long and fulfilling career to sit at home for 2 years hoping to collect $1,500 per month from Social Security. I also encourage my clients to try to work - in my experience one or more "unsuccessful work attempts" serves as compelling evidence that you want to return to work and you were willing to try to push through pain and discomfort. The better cases have a thick medical records file. You should seek on-going treatment with an orthopedist, neurosurgeon and/or pain doctor and continue to seek treatment. You should comply with all of your doctor's recommendations - even painful or difficult suggestions such as physical therapy, weight loss and smoking cessation. Your record should contain multiple MRI reports or CT scans showing an on-going problem. A 3 year old X-ray is not sufficient. And prior to your hearing you should meet with your lawyer to practice testimony - avoid using phrases like "I can't sit for very long or lift very much." You want to testify with as much specificity as you can about your capacity to engage in exertional activities. If you'd like to learn more about how I prepare back pain cases for hearings along with several case studies detailing my experiences in actual hearings, please visit my web site at http://www.georgiasocialsecuritydisabilityattorney.com/case-strategies-and-case-studies/back-pain-winning-social-security-disability-strategies/.

Knee Disorders Long Term Disability Claims Help & Information
 
04:51
We are available nationwide: call 855-319-4421 or email: https://www.diattorney.com/free-consultation/?referrer=yt Disability attorneys Gregory Dell and Stephen Jessup discuss short term and long term disability claims resulting from knee conditions. The types of knee conditions often seen in the context of disability claims are those which are often very severe and the claimant has high levels of chronic pain associated with the knee disorder. These types of chronic knee conditions are often treated with injections or even total knee replacement surgery. Other types of knee conditions are those caused by accidents or injuries. A common challenge when making a claim for disability as a result of a knee disorder, is when the claimant has a "sedentary" or "light" occupation and the disability insurance companies are quick to deny claims on the basis that a knee condition should not prevent a claimant from performing primarily seated work. They fail to consider the constant pain the knee conditions cause, regardless of whether the claimant is sitting, standing or walking. Often a knee condition will progress over years, worsening until the claimant can no longer bear to work. These claims are commonly denied because the disability insurance company will ask "What changed?" As with any other disability claim, it is vital for your treating doctors to properly document your condition, treatment and work restrictions.
