The attorneys of Chermol & Fishman, LLC, regularly represent clients who have become disabled due to a neck or back injury or other medical condition involving the spine or the discs that separate the spinal vertebrae.

We frequently represent people who have worked in occupations that require heavy lifting or repetitive motions that have, over time, left them disabled even if they never had a specific accident or injury.

Our Social Security disability lawyers help people suffering from disabling neck and back injuries and related conditions, including:

  • Bulging or herniated disc
  • Disc compression
  • Degenerated disc
  • Pinched nerves or nerve impingement
  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Lower back strain
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spondylosis
  • Spondylolisthesis

We know that back or neck injuries and related medical conditions can result in chronic pain and total disability — even in cases where the symptoms of the condition do not show up on objective tests, like X-rays and MRI scans.

Our legal team will talk to you about your condition and how it affects your daily life. We will ask about your past medical treatment and the results of the treatment for this condition. If you have not seen a doctor for your neck or back problems, we will encourage you to do so in order to establish a record of treatment. We will also inquire about other physical or psychological conditions that may contribute to a finding of disability.

To discuss SSD and SSI claims or appeals, please call us at (215) 464-7200 or email the attorneys of Chermol & Fishman, LLC. The initial consultation is free, and we never charge a fee until we win your case.
