Common Medical Conditions and Disabilities

Attorney Richard A. Jaffe Will Fight For Your Rights

The Social Security Administration's "blue book" includes a listing of impairments that are considered severe enough to prevent an individual from doing any gainful activity. The impairment must have lasted or is expected to last for at least a year or result in death. If we represent you, we will fight for your Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claim or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim.
