Newark Back Injury Attorney

A back injury or degenerative condition can make it painful or physically impossible to work a full-time job. It's not simply the pinching, burning sensation, shooting pains or numbness. A chronic condition in your back affects your mobility, strength, stamina and ability to concentrate at work. You may even find it unbearable to sit for long periods or difficult to sleep at night.

Many people who suffer agonizing back pain are nonetheless turned down for Social Security Disability. At Abromson & Carey in Newark, New Jersey, we have a successful record of winning benefits for a wide range of disabling conditions because of our focus on the medical evidence.

Medical Evidence Of Back-Related Disorders

Attorney Glenn Carey has practiced in disability law for 27 years. His high success rate is due in large part to his in-depth knowledge of the Social Security Administration's medical criteria. He can often recommend specific diagnostic tests and documentation required to meet the SSA listings or to provide further evidence of disability.

For example, X-rays, MRI or CT scans may reveal dislocation or degradation of a disk. An EMG nerve conduction test (electromyogram) may support claims of back pain, loss of sensation, muscle dysfunction or other symptoms of the disorder. Lastly, the doctor may be able to observe or verify chronic pains, discomfort when standing or sitting, lost range of motion, and inability to bend, twist or lift objects of moderate weight.
