Major Dysfunction of a Joint

A dysfunction of a joint can cause such significant pain in your joints that your ability to perform work related activities is seriously inhibited. If an area of your body necessary for activities such as pushing, pulling, walking, or lifting is consistently in pain, your ability to do those things may be extremely difficult or impossible. If this is the case, you may be eligible for social security disability benefits to help you cope financially when you are unable to work.

If you or someone you love is unable to continue working due to a major dysfunction of a joint, an Indianapolis Social security disability attorney from the Hankey Law Office may be able to help you obtain social Security benefits. To schedule a free consultation, contact us today at (800) 520-3633.
