A back injury can derail a person’s career

On Behalf of | Dec 2, 2015 | Social Security Disability Benefits for Injuries

In a prior post, this blog discussed back pain and the fact that nearly 30 million Americans suffer from it at some point in their life. For many people in Houston, this might mean chronic aches and pains that worsen over time. For others, back pain can be a more immediate and severe problem. In either case, back pain can greatly affect a person’s life, leaving them virtually helpless when it comes to doing the things that they are used to doing on an ordinary basis.

When back pain becomes so severe and pervasive that the person suffering from it cannot work, they may be able to seek Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. Whether a person sits in an office chair and works at a desk all day long, or works in one of Houston’s various businesses related to the oil industry, extensive back pain can make performing their daily job-related tasks virtually impossible.

Our Houston-based law firm helps people in this situation. Attorney David Dopkin has two decades of experience in assisting injured people with applying for SSD benefits. Our firm’s website contains a multitude of helpful information and resources for people who think that they might want to pursue SSD benefits. While the website is a good source for preliminary information, it is not meant to replace the legal advice that only an experienced attorney can provide.

When a person is hurt and cannot work, they need help paying their everyday living costs, not to mention medical expenses. SSD benefits for an injury are designed to support those who cannot work due to an injury. This assistance may be sought regardless of whether the person was injured on the job or doing something unrelated to work.

David Dopkin knows how to represent and help people through all stages of the SSD benefits process. From the initial application to an appeal of a denied claim, our firm knows the particular steps to take to help an injured person pursue SSD benefits.

Back pain can be more than just a hindrance; it can completely alter a person’s life. When back pain stops a person from working, we can help them with seeking SSD benefits.
