Physical Disabilities

If you have a disease, illness, or injury that has lasted (or is expected to last) for at least twelve months or is expected to result in death, you may be eligible to receive Social Security disability benefits. Conditions that affect your body and limit your daily physical activity can be considered physical disabilities. These disabilities include:

  • Conditions that affect the functioning of limbs, motor ability, or mobility; or
  • Visual impairments, hearing impairments, or respiratory disorders.

To gauge your ability to work, the Social Security Administration will use medical records from your doctors, consultative examinations, and other medical forms that measure the physical functioning of your body using various objective and subjective tests. Some of these tests determine how long you can sit and stand during a workday, how much weight you can carry, and other postural, manipulative, visual, or environmental limitations that you may have due to your condition.

If a medical condition is affecting your ability to manage daily life or maintain employment, the Law Offices of Eric A. Shore is here to assist. Our attorneys serve clients across the country.
