About degenerative joint disease and how we can help:
- Degenerative Joint Disease
-- Also known as
degenerative arthritis and osteoarthritis. A clinical
syndrome in which low-grade inflammation results in pain in the
joints, caused by abnormal wearing of the cartilage that covers
and acts as a cushion inside joints. As the bone surfaces become
less well protected by cartilage, the patient experiences pain
upon weight bearing, including walking and standing. Due to
decreased movement because of the pain, regional muscles may
atrophy, and ligaments may become more lax. OA is the most
common form of arthritis.
if you've been disabled and are not able to work for at least
twelve months, then you should apply immediately as the social
security disability and (or) SSI Disability claims process takes a
long period of time to complete.

How Much will I get for my Disability Claim?
The dollar amount Social Security Disability or SSi benefits an
individual will get depends on how much that individual worked in the past
and earned during that time or in the case of SSi it depends on the
individual's claim circumstances . For disabled widow's, it depends on how
much the spouse earned and for a disabled child, it depends on how much
the parent earned.

(good reason why it is wise to have an experienced disability attorney).
40% of the claims are approved at that stage sometimes less. The next stage,
Disability Reconsideration, about 20% of the individuals win at that stage. The last
stage, the Hearing stage is where the individual actually has a hearing in
front of an Administrative Law Judge. The social security disability or
ssi disability hearing is informal with only
the judge, his secretary and often times the judge will have a vocational
expert present to testify as to what jobs the individual can perform.
