Durham Disability Lawyer and Greensboro Disability Lawyer: The Definition of Disability

Today’s Durham Attorney and Greensboro Attorney blog post is going to be the first in a series of posts about Durham Social Security/Disability Law, Greensboro Social Security/Disability Law, and North Carolina Social Security/Disability Law. The Kreger Brodish Law Firm has offices in Durham, North Carolina and Greensboro, North Carolina, and represents clients across the triangle and triad in social security cases and disability cases. If you are looking to discuss your Durham disability case or Greensboro disability case with a Durham disability attorney or Greensboro disability attorney, then give us a call at (888) 820-5885 or send us an email at info@kregerthacker.com.

The first question to be answered in any Durham disability case or Greensboro disability case is are you disabled. To answer that question, we must look at how the law defines the word disability. In a Durham disability case and Greensboro disability case, the definition of disability is: a condition or combination of conditions which is serious enough to keep you out of work for at least 12 months or is expected to result in death. That is the minimum threshold, and if you can not prove that your condition is serious enough to keep you out of work for at least 12 months, then you do not qualify for social security benefits or disability benefits. So, the first conversation you will have with our Durham social security attorney or Greensboro social security attorney will be about what condition and/or conditions you have, and how your condition(s) is/are affecting your ability to work.

Tomorrow’s post will discuss how you prove you are disabled. Specifically, tomorrow’s post will discuss the test used to prove that your disability is keeping you out of work for at least 12 months.
