What Conditions Can You Get Disability Benefits For?

John Tucker and the other Disability Attorneys of Tucker & Ludin, have handled disability claims and lawsuits involving many different conditions. Keep in mind that you are not disabled just because you are diagnosed with a disease or have an injury. Each condition you suffer from can cause symptoms that create disabling restrictions and limitations. The following list reflects some (but certainly not all) of the medical disorders that Mr. Tucker has seen while handling disability cases for nearly 20 years.
