Kansas City Back Injury Attorney

The good news about back and knee injuries in regard to filing for Social Security Disability benefits is that they are common medical conditions that are familiar to administrative law judges who review claimants' appeals.

The not-so-good news about these injuries is that it can be difficult to accurately quantify how debilitating a back or knee injury actually is, and thus it may be more challenging to have a disability claim approved.

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Sharon J. Meyers in Kansas City, Missouri, understand how to work with doctors to document your condition and gather the information that the Social Security Administration (SSA) needs. Denied claims often are the result of lack of medical evidence. Our ability to present this information accurately maximizes our clients' chances of recovery.

Overland Park Knee Injury Lawyer

If your knee pain has persisted for more than 12 months, or if it can be shown that it is expected to persist for more than 12 months and is great enough that it prevents you from engaging in work, you may be eligible for disability benefits.

Both back and knee pain can manifest themselves in numerous ways, and every individual may experience these symptoms differently. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the cause.

If you have back or knee pain, it is important that you are being treated for it. If you state that you are experiencing pain but do not have medical documentation to support your allegation, SSA cannot grant you benefits.

Our experienced legal team will help direct you to receive the proper treatment and assemble the right medical records to prove your disability case. We have won cases for clients that involved the full spectrum of back and knee injuries, including:

  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Herniated disc (slipped disc)
  • Degenerated disc
  • Ligament injuries (including ACL, MCL and PCL tears)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Knee bursitis
