Representing Clients in Different Types of Disability Cases
After a determination by the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you are not working at a substantial, gainful activity and that your medical condition is “severe,” they will then decide if your condition is a “listed” disabling disease.
For Social Security claims, a list of conditions is kept, which if met exactly, will qualify someone for disability. Meeting a listed impairment might sound easy, but in actuality, meeting and proving a listed impairment is quite difficult.
Our Social Security Disability attorneys know that the impairment list is long, complete, and a great deal of medical information is needed for SSA to find that your medical condition meets a listing.
The list is separated into categories of similar medical conditions but be sure to check all categories before assuming which one is correct for your symptoms.
Our Social Security Disability attorneys will help you assemble the evidence necessary to prove that your condition meets a listed impairment or navigate the next stage of the application process.
If your condition does not meet exactly a listed impairment, the SSA will determine if your severe impairment prevents you from performing past work and whether your condition prevents you from adjusting to other work
