This case serves as a compelling example that even if your Social Security benefits have been denied in the past, there is always room for hope and possibility. The client in this case, a 58-year-old school custodian with multiple severe medical conditions, had been denied twice by the Social Security Administration before seeking help from Marcus Vaden Law. Her conditions consisted of degenerative disc disease on cerebral regions of her spine, right carpal tunnel syndrome and degenerative joint disease in her left shoulder.
Her SSDI application was rejected because medical records did not support her claims of pain and weakness. However, the team at Marcus Vaden Law was able to carefully review and analyze her medical records to build a strong case for her disability claim.
We highlighted how she had consistently reported her symptoms to doctors over the years and had sought treatment through various methods such as medication, injections, and even surgery. We also pointed out multiple abnormal diagnostic tests that revealed the severity of her conditions.
Our team was able to prove that the written description they had of her current job as a school custodian was only a few hours a week and did not involve any of the strenuous duties that were typical of that particular occupation, which further supported her claim for disability.
Thanks to our efforts, the Social Security Administration reversed their decision and awarded our client with past due benefits of $56,938 and a current monthly benefit of $1,490 through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).
