Physical Impairment & SSD Benefits
Counsel from a Medford Social Security Disability Lawyer
When you can no longer work due to your physical impairment, you can apply for
Social Security Disability benefits. You must demonstrate to the Social Security Administration that
your injury is so severe and debilitating that it is preventing you from
performing your job duties, lasting at least 12 months or is a terminal illness.
The Administration oversees each type of illness or injury and provides
a list of requirements necessary for the applicant to qualify. If you
do not qualify, the Administration will review whether or not that person
can perform other work, such as ones that require less physical strength.
What Types of Injuries Does SSD Cover?
There are 14 body systems listed in the requirements. These include respiratory,
cardiovascular, digestive, neurological, endocrine, immune, and musculoskeletal systems.
The most common types of impairments may include:
- Mental disorders
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Hearing loss
- Heart conditions
- Asthma, COPD, and other breathing conditions
Other conditions may include digestive problems, blood disorders, and much
more. At Brooks Law, our Medford social security disability attorneys

history. This is crucial in demonstrating that you are unable to work
