Are You Unable To Work Due To A Serious Back Injury?

Back pain, whether stemming from an accident or continued stress over time, can be debilitating and prevent you from working. If you are coping with severe or chronic back pain, but were denied Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, the Law Office of Todd R. Worthley can help. We have extensive experience helping clients in Portland and throughout Oregon obtain the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) they deserve.

Why Are Claims So Frequently Denied?

The Social Security Administration’s (SSA) laws are complex, and it can justify denying a claim based on the smallest detail. Most often people are denied benefits because they did not adequately document their injury or illness and prove that the condition prevents them from working. This is especially true in back pain cases where the injury may not be readily apparent.

  • Talk with your doctor to understand the extent of your injury and suffering from back pain
  • Give you clear advice regarding the type of information you need to better substantiate your claim
