Some form of back disability affects most people at one time or another, inhibiting their ability to work. The bulk of back injuries are short term, and workers are able to resume their employment. Yet for some, a disabling back injury can turn into a lifetime of pain that tears at the quality of life.
Back disability claims are routinely challenged by insurance companies, the Social Security Administration (SSA), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
If this has been your experience, it may be time to seek legal help in order to prove you are indeed disabled. Don’t risk losing your disability benefits on a technicality, or at the hands of a shrewd insurance company or an imperfect government program.
