not to irritate anyone but this article might, but check it out on cbs web site where a senator tom cobrum from oklahoma stated that his research showed that 50% of disability claims are fraudulent where 20% are downright fraud and 25% are very questionable. He blames this on the disability lawyers. so take it or leave it but don't shoot the messenger. it shows one the perception of patients trying to get disability and what the public's perception is for people especially ones with back pain. it is an interesting read.
