Arthritis and Social Security Disability

A recent study shows that nearly 48 million Americans have a disability, which is a significant increase from the reported 2 million a decade ago. Arthritis tops the list as the most common cause of disability. It is expected that baby boomers will, as they age, cause a rise in the prevalence of arthritis by 40% as of 2030.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report published a detailed study in an article describing the increasing impact of arthritis today.

Our clients applying for Social Security Disability confirm the accuracy above statistics. We welcome the opportunity to assist individuals seeking disability benefits, and are happy to support the Arthritis Foundation in support at their upcoming walk on May 16, 2009 in Dallas.

Last month we enjoyed supporting the Lupus Foundation’s walk and were glad to see that the number of walkers had increased to over 800!

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
