37. husband was denied once
and that is with being struck by a car driven by a guy who tried to kill him because he was a deputy sheriff. The whole thing was on tape and the guy got 25 years to life BUT my husband was only 30 at the time. He did however get hit in the front and then hit again in the back. His spinal cord was jarred and he now as autonomic imbalance(dysfunction). Remember that term. You won't get that from a regular "doc" but you need to see a neurosurgeon. Does she have problems with her Blood pressure? Does any part of her "automatic" bodily functions not work the way it did before she injured her back? Did she hurt her back from trauma?

After a few years dicking around they finally award disability to him and got full back pay. We did get an attorney but he didn't have to go to court. Our lawyers secretary just talked to the judge and got awarded. NO LIE. It was just because of his age. He also got money from the Federal govt being injured in the line of duty but that took 3 years but again he got it without an attorney.

Don't give up. She will get it if she doesn't give up.
