We help people seek disability benefits for the following hip injuries:

  • Degenerative diseases affecting the hip
  • Osteoarthritis

Many hip injuries take a long time to heal. Some require surgery and hip replacement. Even when a hip injury heals, mobility may be affected and chronic pain may be an issue.
