Common Causes of Disability in Los Angeles

Anyone could become disabled at any time, as a sudden illness or injury could cause you to become unable to work or to do normal daily activities like dressing yourself or bathing. You should be protected from financial loss caused by a long-term disability because the Social Security Administration (SSA) should provide you with monthly income through Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Unfortunately, many people who are disabled have a hard time getting their benefits claim approved. You need to know what kinds of disabilities can entitle you to benefits and should get help from a Los Angeles disability benefits attorney in case you become disabled. 

Common Causes of Disability

There are many different conditions that could leave you severely disabled, and many of those conditions should entitle you to receive Social Security Disability benefits. According to WebMd, some of the most common reasons why people become disabled include:

  • Arthritis
  • Pain in the back
  • Cardiac problems
  • Depression
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes

For some of these conditions, getting disability benefits is easier than others. For example, for many types of cancer, you can get expedited approval for a Social Security Disability benefits claim because many types of cancer are on a list of Compassionate Allowance conditions that entitle you to easier and quicker approval of your benefits application. For other conditions, like back pain, it can be harder to prove you are entitled to receive benefits. 

Whatever your specific condition, a Los Angeles disability benefits lawyer can provide the help you need to try to convince the Social Security Administration (SSA) to pay you the benefits that you deserve.

The Effect of Back Pain – Los Angeles Social Security Disability Attorneys

A new study suggests that doctors should take into account the social ramifications that back pain can have on an individual.  A team of researchers at Warwick Medical School found that low back pain can lead to problematic relationships, people withdrawing from society and isolation and depression.  These external effects must also be taken into account by the Social Security Administration and the judges when assessing an Social Security Disability claimant’s case. Indeed, the ramifications from experiencing pain are much greater than the pain itself.  As attorneys practicing Social Security Disability, we have seen these consequences and have heard your stories.  We understand that pain can affect so many aspects of your life.  That’s why we fight for you to get the Social Security Disability benefits you need and deserve.  It is also why we understand that you may not be able to complete this process without assistance and advocacy and we help you through each step of the process.  If you have severe low back pain that keeps you from working, contact us or any experienced attorney to determine if they can help you receive Social Security Disability (SSDI or SSI) benefits.
