Social Security Disability Benefits for Injuries Archives

Seeking SSD benefits in conjunction with workers' comp benefits

It is clear that some work industries are more dangerous than others. Some workers in New Jersey are faced with risks such as workplace injuries and illnesses. While these might be known risks or not, when they occur they can greatly alter a persons ability to function, work and enjoy life. Thus, when an individual is disabled because of a work injury, it is vital to understand what recourses are available to you and what benefits you could recover.

Helping you understand your SSD benefits rights

No one intends to be involved in an accident. In fact, almost all accidents are sudden and unexpected. Thus, the resulting harms caused by the accident are equally as surprising. In some incidents, a victim could suffer serious and even debilitating injuries. This could result in the injured victim suffering a long-term disability, making it impossible to work.

Watch out when diving in New Jersey waters this summer

Nothing beats the summer heat in New Jersey like a trip to the beach or pool. Swimming is not only a fun way to cool off, but it is also a great way to relax and exercise. Some swimmers may also enjoy diving. However, when it comes to diving, swimmers need to be careful. Diving into shallow water could lead to a life-altering spine injury.

Understanding the severity of brain injuries

Tackling your disability alone may be difficult

If you find yourself struggling to deal with a disability, the last thing you want to deal with is paperwork and forms and hassles. This is true for someone who has a mere cold or flu; things can be especially difficult if you are suffering from a serious condition that is preventing you from working long-term.

Multiple ex-NFL players pledge to donate brains for research

The two made their announcement in conjunction with their annual Brain Trust: Pathways to innoVAtion event.

Social Security Disability is designed to help accident victims

If you have suffered from a serious injury as a result of an accident or work-related injury, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI. In order to qualify, you must prove that your injury is serious enough that you are unable to maintain gainful employment for at least a year, or that your condition is so serious that it is expected to end in death.

Traumatic brain injuries are not always easy to detect

Newark residents may be surprised to hear that approximately two million people in the United States annually will sustain a traumatic brain injury. Moreover, around 5.3 million people in the United States currently have a disability that relates back to having sustained a TBI. However, detecting such an injury can be difficult, leading to TBIs being called a "silent epidemic" by one physician.

Study looks at spinal manipulation’s effectiveness on lower back pain

When a person thinks of treatment for lower back pain, they might automatically think of medications. However, there are a wide range of methods out there, including many non-medication methods, for trying to treat this type of pain.

Brain injuries can lead to significant disabilities for a victim

The brain is one of the most important organs in the body. It is also one of the most fragile. The human body protects the brain with a solid and strong skull, but any impact to the head could still prove to be costly with the potential of causing a brain injury.
