SSI, SSD Injuries, Impairments, Conditions and Diseases
Common injuries and conditions, uncommon injuries and conditions, physical conditions, diseases, mental health issues — the truth is that almost any serious condition or illness has the potential to be disabling.
Unfortunately, the fact that you are actually disabled won’t matter much unless you can convince the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you cannot work.
At My Philadelphia Disability Lawyer, our entire practice is dedicated to helping people obtain Social Security disability insurance (SSD) and supplemental security income (SSI) benefits. It is the only work we do. Our attorneys previously worked for the SSA for years. Now in private practice, they can use that knowledge and perspective from the inside to help you succeed.
The Consultation is FREE and we never charge a fee until we win your case! Call (215) 464-7200 or contact us Now!

These two lists are not a complete listing of the common disabling conditions, injuries, diseases and impairments recognized by the Social Security Administration. These are only examples. In other words, if your condition or impairment isn’t listed, do not worry or assume that you won’t qualify for benefits.
The important thing to take away here is that simply having one of these injuries or conditions is not enough. The impairment must be carefully described so that it fits within one of SSA’s accepted definitions of a disabling injury, illness or condition. Our disability lawyers know what SSA and their administrative law judges are looking for when they review a claimant’s materials and can help to prepare your case accordingly.
