Frank's understanding of the medical issues relating to Social Security disability is extraordinary. In the time he has helped my patients, I have seen numerous individuals who have been denied previously receive full disability benifits. Bruce B. Shafiroff, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Over the years, we have represented individuals with almost every conceivable kind of medical disorder. When putting together a disability claim, we analyze most medical problems the same way. It is our basic job to determine how a given disorder restricts our client's ability to function in a work setting, and then present persuasive proof of that to the Social Security Administration.

All significant medical disorders produce symptoms that impose functional limitations on the people afflicted by them. Most of the time, it is those symptoms and limitations that determine whether or not a person will be awarded disability benefits.  

In this section, we have provided basic information about several categories of medical disorders that give rise to claims for disability benefits. We discuss some of the common symptoms of these disorders and explain how those symptoms can affect an individual's ability to work.

These summaries are not intended to be definitive.  Social Security is constantly updating and revising its listings of disabling disorders, just as medical science is constantly developing new and innovative means of diagnosing and treating them.  If you have specific questions regarding your own medical disorder, and whether or not it might warrant an award of disability benefits, we encourage you to consult with us.  We don't charge for consultations of this sort.
