If you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, it may be impacting your ability to work. To learn if you qualify for Social Security disability benefits, contact an attorney who has experience handling these types of cases.
Carpal tunnel syndrome does not usually qualify an individual for Social Security; however there may be other ways you can still obtain disability benefits such as through:
- showing evidence that you are unable to work because of physical limitations;
- proving that symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome may fall under another listing of impairment; and
- presenting medical evidence that demonstrates your limitations through a variety of tests.
Most initial claims for Social Security are denied. It is more than likely if you do apply for disability, you will need to appeal that decision and may end up in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) for a hearing. Having a Morristown Social Security disability attorney on your side can improve your chance at a successful outcome.
Carpal tunnel syndrome can be a very painful condition. It can make basic tasks difficult, if not impossible to do. For this reason, you could end up qualifying for Social Security disability.
