Social Security Benefits For Those With Spine Injuries, Hip Injuries And Other Musculoskeletal Disorders

In an ideal world, you would be able to keep the job you enjoy until retirement. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. Many industrious Americans are forced to stop working long before retirement due to serious injuries and disabilities. If you can no longer work due to a back injury or other orthopedic condition, you may qualify to receive Social Security benefits early.


Florida Disability Advocates assists individuals throughout the state with Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims. We want to help you, too.

Chad Lawrence, our Tampa and Orlando attorney for back injuries and other disabling conditions, has a wealth of legal knowledge gained over 25 years of practice. He offers every client personal attention and empathy from the initial consultation to the conclusion of each case.

Types Of Potentially Disabling Orthopedic Injuries

Orthopedic injuries, sometimes called musculoskeletal injuries, include damage to a person’s bones, joints or muscles. Florida Disability Advocates counsels and represents men and women throughout the state who are unable to work for at least 12 consecutive months because of orthopedic injuries. Such cases may include:

  • Back injury
  • Hip injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Joint disability
  • Knee injury
  • Ankle injury
  • Degenerative disk disease
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Spinal curvature

Even if your specific injury or combination of injuries is not included in the Social Security Administration’s listing of impairments, you may still qualify for SSDI or SSI benefits. The Administration does not consider the name of the condition or injury to be as important as how it affects your ability to work.

Our law firm can help present your case to the Administration in a way that clearly shows the full extent of your injuries and how your condition affects your employment opportunities.
