Orthopedic Injuries

Help When Joint Pain Prevents You From Working

Orthopedic injuries and joint pain can be severe and long-lasting. In some cases, your injury may be so severe that you simply cannot work. Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits may be available if you cannot work full time because of injury.

At the Rochester, NY Law Offices of Kenneth Hiller, PLLC, you will find  Social Security Disability attorneys who understand how to document your condition and gather evidence that the Social Security Administration needs to decide in your favor.

About Joint Pain

Orthopedic injuries and joint pain can limit your ability to stand, sit, walk, reach or lift objects, actions that are required for most types of work. Your knees, ankles, shoulders, hips and other body parts may be affected. If your condition prevents you from working full time, you may be eligible for SSD or SSI benefits. Our lawyers have represented clients with a wide range of orthopedic and related injuries, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Injured ligaments and tendons
  • Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Bursitis or joint inflammation

Musculoskeletal and orthopedic injury disability claims can be challenging to prove. Some conditions such as lupus can be similar to fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. A lack of medical evidence often leads to claims being denied. Our attorneys will work with your doctor to document your condition and its effect on your ability to work — information that the SSA needs to make a decision about your case.
