The list of physical disabilities that can qualify one for social security disability benefits is almost endless. However, your condition must prevent you from working. If you have been injured or infected with a disease, you may also qualify for benefits, if you are unable to resume daily activities for a minimum years’ time. Here at the offices of Richard Sly, Attorney at Law, we want to help you understand which physical and mental disabilities could potentially qualify for benefits. Keep reading to learn more about examples of disorders that can be “disabling”.

Back, Neck, or Spinal Cord- Whether this condition is temporary or permanent, you could receive benefits due to a back, neck, or spinal cord injury. If you are suffering from one of these injuries, you should call us.

Multiple Sclerosis- This condition is also known as MS. Common symptoms of this progressive disease include severe fatigue, numbness, and speech impairment.

Fibromyalgia- This condition causes severe pain all over the body making it very difficult to continue working. The slightest touch can be very painful.
