Harrisburg Disability Attorneys Talk About Severe Impairment & Social Security Disability
Posted Scott B. Cooper on Jul 11, 2012 in General
May 21, 2012 – When applying for social security disability, a person must know that an application will be granted only if the applicant has a “severe impairment”, not just any impairment. This generally means a medical condition which significantly limits your ability to do a job. The problem can be physical, mental or a combination of both. The limitations must preclude you from physical functions such as standing and walking; or understanding remembering and carrying out simple instructions; or responding appropriately to work situations.
The Social Security Disability attorneys Cook and Melissa Leininger with Schmidt Kramer Injury Lawyers can answer any questions you may have about whether you have a “severe impairment”, and applying for and qualifying for social security disability. Contact Melissa if you have any questions or need a social security disability lawyer.
