Social Security Disability Benefits for Injuries Archives

Can I get SSDI benefits for brain injury?

For New Jersey residents who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), the damage can go beyond the brain and impact many different areas of the body, hindering their ability to work. With the variety of problems that accompany a brain injury along with the medical expenses, the inability to work should be accounted for by applying for Social Security disability benefits for injury. With TBI, knowing how the Social Security Administration evaluates it and what criteria must be met to be granted benefits is integral to a case.

What is a spinal cord injury?

Whether it is because of a fall at work, an automobile collision or any other form of accident, suffering an injury to the back can be serious. It can be so serious that it can cause a person to suffer a disability. An injury to the back could impact the spinal cord, even making it impossible to move some of one's body temporarily or permanently. Because of this, those living with a spinal cord injury may find it impossible to care for him or herself, do the things they once could or even work. This is where Social Security disability benefits could be resourceful and necessary.

Back injuries and risks for long-term disability

We all get aches and pains from time to time. This is typically because we have overdone it at work, the gym or at home. These pains will often go away with rest and home remedies. However, these pains, especially those of the back, can be debilitating when a serious injury to the back occurs. This can make for a painful and challenging life, as this can disrupt one's ability to maintain a normal life and even hold down a job.

Seeking SSD benefits for injuries suffered in an accident

Because we are not invincible, injuries happen. While many of the injuries individuals in New Jersey and elsewhere suffer are minor, other injuries can be severe. So severe that it causes difficulties in the person's everyday life. It can be so difficult that an individual is unable to return to work. Such a situation can be problematic, as it can cause financial hardships. Thus, it is important to explore options, such as collecting Social Security disability benefits.

Early therapy doesn't improve pain-related back disability

We all suffer from aches and pains from time to time. Maybe you ran a half marathon, spent a day doing yard work or had to shovel the driveway. Whether it is because of doing housework, work or a leisure activity, when an individual suffers from back pain, it can cause major impacts to one's health. In some cases, the pain can be so severe that it can be disabling, making it difficult to leave the house or hold down a job.

Can you recover SSD benefits following a brain injury?

Much like one does not expect to suffer great harms in an accident, one also does not expect to be unable to work because of this serious injury. Unfortunately, however, tragic accidents can happen. People are suddenly and shockingly disabled by a severe injury, such as trauma to the head. Such an injury not only impacts a person cognitively, but a brain injury could also impact a person's ability to move his or her body or control their reflexes.

Work credits and Social Security disability

Let's face it. Suffering an injury is painful. Even something minor can cause very noticeable and distracting pain for weeks at a time. Thus, when an individual in New Jersey or elsewhere suffers a serious injury, he or she is likely to endure much pain that impacts many facets of his or her life. In some cases, an injury could be so severe that it is difficult to lead a normal life and impossible to hold down a job. This can present many financial challenges.

SSD benefits following a workplace injury

For some individuals in New Jersey, he or she has been disabled since birth due to a birth injury, birth defect or a genetic condition or disorder. Others acquire a disability later in life. Specifically, a person is disabled because of an event, such as an accident. Due to the dangers faced in some work environments, a workplace injury is a growing cause for individuals suffering from disabilities.

Spinal cord injuries and added complications

Risks and dangers exist everywhere you walk. Whether it is at home, at work, in the park, at the store or any other public place, accidents could occur at anytime. While these could be simple trips or crashes, others could be serious with severe injuries. Whether it is a serious accident at the workplace or an automobile collision, a serious injury such as one to the spine could be life altering. A spine injury is one that could leave a victim permanently disabled, requiring extensive and ongoing medical care.

SSDI benefits and the need for vocational rehabilitation

Suffering a serious injury is anything but easy. Not only is the individual dealing with the event that caused the injury, he or she is now attempting to recover from the injury. For some severe injuries, taking time off to heal or seeking medical treatment is not enough. When an injury is debilitating, whether temporarily or permanently, this not only means extensive medical care but also being unable to work for this timeframe.
