Royal Palm Beach and West Palm Beach Social Security Disability Lawyer and Attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq., is proud to have been serving the West Palm Beach and Royal Palm Beach communities for over 25 years.

One common medical issue in Social Security Disability hearings, common in West Palm Beach, is lumbar or back injuries. Lumbar injuries account for a significant portion of all lost time from work across the United States and in Florida. Some claimants have severe spinal arthritis, surgeries and persistent chronic pain, from both sitting and standing. Surgeries are notorious for causing chronic back pain problems and often these individuals may show scarring around nerve roots. MRI scans and CT scans are the type of objective medical evidence used to demonstrate these problems.

As a result of lumbar injury, a claimant may be restricted to less than sedentary work, if his or her functional capacity is severe. Other claimants may be limited to sedentary work, but be required to frequently alternate sitting and standing and may periodically have to lie down supine on the floor or a couch. Chronic lumbar injuries also result frequently in "good days" and "bad days," the latter being a cause of total or partial absence from work. Regular and frequent absence from employment due to a back injury can be the basis for the award of Social Security Disability benefits. It is difficult or impossible to locate employment, when absenteeism is frequent and regular.

In West Palm Beach, many individuals are employed in the construction and repair trades, which are unfortunately a common precipitator of lumbar injuries. Randy Zeldin, Esq. has represented West Palm Beach individuals with lumbar injuries who have been electricians, plumbers, roofers and swimming pool maintenance workers.
