K.B. was a 43 year-old PTF Clerk for the U.S. Postal Service in South Carolina. While employed, she developed several back conditions, including a bulging disc, a herniated disc, tenderness in her lumbar region, and a limited range of motion. These back problems would also cause radiating pain down both legs, and a numbing in the toes of her left foot.
Because of back injury, she had not worked since 2007. Her back injury took a lot of her life away from her in addition to preventing her from performing her job as a USPS Clerk. Before her injuries, K.B. had been very active and had many outdoor hobbies that she enjoyed.
These conditions forced K.B. to apply for Federal Disability Retirement in 2009. She hired Harris Federal Law Firm for assistance with her claim through the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Her application was granted and she is now receiving her earned annuity.
