There is no charge for your initial consultation with a Katherman, Briggs & Greenberg personal injury attorney. This allows you to explore your options and determine whether moving forward with your case is the best decision for you on a risk-free basis. An initial consultation is the all-important first step to getting the results you deserve.

How Does Social Security Decide If You Are Disabled?

The U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) is responsible for the social security disability, and your state has social security disability offices in place to process your state’s applications. Millions of applications and requests work their way through the system each year, which is why the SSA has systems in place to determine whether your injury qualifies as a disability.

The SSA List of Impairments

The SSA List of Impairments is a compilation of the conditions for which people often seek disability requirements. The list defines which conditions qualify for disability benefits and outlines how severe a condition must be to qualify for benefits. If you have a condition or been injured, consult the current SSA List of Impairments to determine whether your condition qualifies.

Residual Functional Capacity (RFC)

If your condition is not listed on the SSA List of Impairments but still prevents you from working, the SSA will base their social security disability decision on an RFC, which evaluates your ability to do your current job with your injury or condition.

If an RFC shows you cannot do the job you did before your current diagnosis, you will be given a medical-vocational analysis. The goal of the analysis is to find out whether you could be retrained for another job, or if there is another job you could do with your condition. If there is not, you may still qualify for disability benefits.

Showing evidence of a disability can be daunting — especially if your condition is not on the SSA official list of impairments. If you need assistance proving or appealing your disability claim, contact KBG Injury Law for a consultation. Our attorneys would be pleased to assist you.
