Social Security Disability Benefits for Injuries Archives

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.

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.

Making sure your application is correct is crucial

It appears that winter is over and spring is finally here. The weather is warmer, there are robins out and about and trees and plants are starting to bloom throughout the north New Jersey area, including the parks in and around Newark. As the weather continues to warm up, people will start to be outdoors more, often enjoying various recreational activities such as jogging, biking or participating in sports.

Qualifying SSD benefits for injury undergoes change

When a person in Newark applies for Social Security disability benefits for injuries, they often rely on reports by their doctors documenting their medical condition. After all, the doctors who were treating them may have the best understanding of the person's injury, and can give a perspective on the person's health from a professional standpoint. However, there has recently been a change in regulations that affects how these reports will be used when determining whether or not to award a person SSD benefits.

Accident injury can render one unable to work until rehabilitated

When it rains, it pours. Those that have suffered accident injury may well understand the truth behind this saying. When a person suffers an unexpected accident injury, it can send your life into a tailspin. First, the immediate medical care and the costs associated with it. Then the lost hours or wages at work. Finally, the rehabilitation time can compound these two factors.

What are some common causes of a brain injury?

The Social Security Administration recognizes that traumatic brain injuries could be a disabling condition. However, Newark residents may wonder how pervasive are TBIs in our nation and what causes them?
