While it isn’t necessarily easy, getting Social Security benefits for chronic pain or a related condition is oftentimes a critical step for an Osceola County, Florida, resident who is struggling with the condition.
Many times, this condition keeps a person from being able to work in a job that calls for his or her qualifications. In the worst-case scenario, it can keep a person from handling basic life functions.
Moreover, chronic pain can affect the chemical balance in one’s brain, reducing the amount of a chemical called dopamine. Without enough dopamine, a person could develop depression, which makes it doubly hard to manage the underlying pain and get back to work.
The reason these sorts of cases are hard to prove from a disability perspective is that they, although very real, are hard to observe. In other words, a person suffering from these conditions may seem “fine,” even though they are in fact not able to work and support themselves.
Our law office accepts as clients disability claimants who are seeking financial help because of their chronic pain condition, as well as any related physical or mental conditions, including depression. We represent clients throughout the area of central Florida, including in Orlando and the Tampa area.
The most important task we have is to convince the Social Security Administration that our clients’ chronic pain, especially if it is one of several medical conditions our clients struggle with, indeed qualifies them for disability benefits. We work hard to make sure we obtain the necessary documentation of our clients’ condition so we can present the most effective case possible.
