Disability Benefits For Soft Tissue Or Burn Injuries

Burns and soft tissue injuries can qualify for Social Security disability benefits.  As both burns and soft tissue injuries may range in severity from minimal to disabling or even life threatening, the Social Security Administration will evaluate your medical conditions to determine if your conditions are severe enough to qualify for benefits.

  • sprains
  • strains
  • contusions
  • tendonitis
  • bursitis
  • stress injuries
