People With Muscle and Bone Disorders Such as Arthritis and Muscular Dystrophy Could Receive SSDI or SSI

Individuals who have a muscle or bone disorder and are unable to work as a result may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits are available to individuals whose disability prevents them from working for 12 months or more.

At the law firm of Tim and Sean Cuddigan, we help clients in Omaha and throughout eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa who are seeking disability benefits for a muscle or bone disorder. Contact an Omaha muscle and bone disorders attorney to learn how we can help.

Muscle and Bone Disorders

Our law firm represents clients who are seeking Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for the following:

  • Muscle disorders: Including fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy, myositis, tendonitis, and torn ligaments
  • Bone disorders: Including arthritis, osteomalacia, bone disease, bone marrow diseases, scoliosis, Paget's disease, bone cancer, and osteogenesis imperfectus (brittle bone disease)

A muscle or bone disorder can cause widespread pain and weakness. Research has shown that muscle and bone disorders can affect each other, so when one muscle, bone or joint is affected, other areas of the body may also suffer.

If you meet or equal the Social Security Administration's listing for a muscle or bone disorder, you are eligible to receive disability benefits. It is important to work with an experienced lawyer who is familiar with the disability application and denied benefits appeal processes.
