Brief Answer: Would surely love to be of assistance sir Detailed Answer: Hello sir and welcome. Thank you for writing to us. The disability resulting from your injury would be: -Inability to use affected arm -Limited and/or restricted range of motion -Inability to lift arm or objects -Constant pain, weakness and tenderness making movements painful -Inability to conduct any basic activities like reaching anterior or posterior parts of the body, pulling, lifting or sleeping on affected side Description of disability: -Constant pain, weakness and tenderness of the entire arm making movements painful -Inability to conduct any basic activities like reaching anterior or posterior parts of the body, pulling, lifting or sleeping on affected side I hope this information is what you were looking for sir. I have helped many patients with their social security claims and so I am hoping this helps you as well. I somehow feel the system is flawed though, as a physical examination and a statement from the claimant is not taking, which helps describe the disability most accurately. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to be of assistance. Best wishes.
