Document Any Sitting, Standing And Posture Limitations
If you are struggling with physical disabilities, simple movements like walking, sitting, standing, lifting or crouching can be severely limited or even impossible. These restrictions can have a serious impact on your ability to do your job — whether you sit at a desk or are on your feet.
At Bridgman Law Offices, we help people in Charlotte and the surrounding communities understand their options for obtaining Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits to help cope with the financial and physical challenges of dealing with a disability and being unable to work.
Understanding Your Limitations Is Key When Applying For SSD Benefits
It’s important to thoroughly document your ailment when applying for SSD benefits. The medical evidence and personal testimony you provide are key factors the Social Security Administration (SSA) considers when reviewing an application.
Whether you’ve been dealing with pain for a long time or you’re just starting to notice the effects and their impact on your work, below are some questions you can ask yourself to determine whether your issue could qualify for SSD benefits:
- Is the pain keeping me from getting out of bed in the morning?
- Can I still perform my job duties or is my performance suffering?
- Am I unable to focus on my work or other daily tasks due to the pain?
- Has my mobility become limited in an unusually short period of time?
- Am I asking for help with basic tasks that I normally handle on my own?
As your representatives, attorney Daniel A. Bridgman and his team can help you gather your medical records, pursue treatment if you haven’t already and help you develop a strong case when applying for benefits or filing an appeal if you have been denied.
The Consultation Is Free, So What Do You Have To Lose?
If you’re struggling with bending, crouching, sitting, standing, walking or other basic physical movements, it’s time to call a lawyer who can help you determine whether you qualify for SSD or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
