When an Injury, accident or Debilitating Disease Leaves You with a Permanent Disability
After surgery, a debilitating disease or an accident, physical injuries may leave you with a permanent disability that makes it impossible to return to work. To make sure hardworking Americans are not left without a means of support, the U.S. government established the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program. SSDI is not welfare. It is a system in which workers contribute a portion of their earnings to build up an annuity account in the event of disability.
Common types of qualifying physical disabilities that are frequently denied upon initial application include:
- Back injuries and spinal disorders such as herniated disks
- Neck injuries and shoulder injuries
- Traumatic brain injury from concussions
- Injuries that reduce physical mobility or dexterity
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries
Were you injured at work?
We also assist workers who have been injured on the job and qualify for workers' compensation benefits. In many cases, injured workers should begin the process of applying for SSDI immediately, in the event they are unable to return to the workplace.
Other types of physical impairments that qualify for Social Security benefits include:
- Orthopedic injuries
- Heart disease
It's You Against The Government. Put An Experienced Lawyer On Your Side.
If you have worked over the previous 10 years, chances are you qualify to claim benefits for your disability. Although your physical disability may qualify, though, the Social Security Disability Determination Services often see things differently. A high number of initial claims for physical disabilities such as back injuries, knee and joint injuries and repetitive stress damage to ligaments, tendons and joints are rejected.
