011Do you have a serious back injury or related disease that prevents you from working? You may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. Back injuries are very common, and can be disabling. Whenever your back is injured, or a spinal disease causes severe pain or injury, you could be out of commission long-term or permanently. The Social Security

Administration, which processes applications for disability benefits, may grant you Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI) because of your back injury or disease. However, navigating the benefit application can be an intimidating or even impossible task if you apply by yourself.

The Law Offices of Bemis, Roach & Reed can help you apply for SSDI benefits or appeal a denied application. Many applicants have little or no experience working through the complicated process and too often do not receive the benefits they need to survive. Call our experienced Austin, Texas Social Security Disability lawyers today to schedule a free initial consultation. We will help determine if your back injury or disease can qualify you to receive federal benefits, and if so, we will work with you to complete the application.

Back Injuries & Diseases May Qualify for Benefits

The Social Security Administration qualifies back injuries or spine diseases as “musculoskeletal system” disabilities. This means that your injury or diseases affects your muscles, tendons, nerves, spine, or joints. Disabling back injuries can be a result of an auto accident, a work accident, or a flare up of another injury or disease. For example, degenerative disc disease, a disorder that affects the way your spinal discs function, can cause debilitating back pain. Minor injuries, like muscle sprains or broken bones, which lead to back pain will not qualify you to receive Social Security Disability benefits. However, back pain resulting from herniated or compressed discs, rheumatoid arthritis, scoliosis or similar spinal injuries and diseases are considered debilitating and can qualify you for disability benefits. To qualify, you must prove that your back injury or disease has impaired your ability to work.
