Suffering an injury could mean you are eligible for SSD benefits

There are millions of people in America who receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. For most of these people, SSD benefits are a crucial financial lifeline, since the individuals who are eligible to receive SSD benefits are no longer able to work, for the most part. Alabama residents may find that they are eligible to receive SSD benefits for a variety of reasons. Suffering an injury could be one such reason.

Many people who suffer some type of injury usually expect to recover, at some point. However, injuries may be so severe that people simply do not make a full recovery, through no fault of their own. Every day people are injured in car accidents, workplace accidents and even due to "premises liability" incidents, in which a dangerous property condition on another person's property led to the injury. No matter the reason, though, significant injuries can change a person's life.

In order to determine if an injury is serious enough to make a person eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits, the Social Security Administration will examine whether or not the injury has caused a medical condition that is expected to last for 12 months or more, or result in the person's death. The disability must prevent the applicant from being able to maintain "substantial gainful activity" in order to earn an income.

At our law firm, we work with Alabama residents who have suffered an injury that might make them eligible to receive SSD benefits. Before applying, potential applicants should understand the ins and outs of the application process and, potentially, the appeals process.
