Atlanta Back, Neck & Spine Injury Lawyer
Social Security Disability Lawyers in Atlanta
People who have suffered back, neck, and spinal cord injuries often report incredible difficulty returning to work for any length of time. The severity of their injury does not automatically qualify them for Social Security Disability benefits, however. A case still needs to be brought to and approved by the Social Security Administration (SSA), which could be denied for a variety of reasons that can be difficult to follow.
If you need to bring a case to the attention of the SSA but are worried it will be denied, perhaps due to a general lack of understanding of the SSD process, you can set aside your concerns when you retain the help of Stevens & Sullivan, LLC. We have focused our practice on helping people manage their SSD cases and finding a more comfortable life after serious injuries. Contact our Atlanta Social Security Disability attorneys today.

What happens if I hurt my back at work?
If you hurt your back while performing duties for your employer, you may have a workers' compensation claim. This means that you will receive medical treatment paid for by workers' compensation insurance for your injury. You should not have to spend any money out of your own pocket. There are no co-pays for appointments or doctor visits.
Disabling Effects of a Back, Neck & Spine Injury
When someone suffers a serious injury to their back, neck, or spine, considerable physical impairment is nearly expected. The sensitive nature of the spinal cord means that a slight impact or laceration could cause a permanently disabling condition, such as paralysis of one or all limbs. Total or partial paralysis should not be the only back injury consequence that warrants Social Security Disability benefits.
Other consequences of back, neck & spine injuries include:
- Chronic aches and soreness
- Stiffness of joints
- Pain when sitting or lying still
- Difficulty walking
- Unsteady hands or motions
- Sharp, random episodes of pain
A person learning to live with a serious back injury may not have the energy or ability to also continue regular work functions. When this is the case, SSD benefits or income can help them make ends meet after their accident.
