Have you ever been at the wrong place at the wrong time? Or had an issue with your health, maybe related to a nagging injury or a work-related injury? Being injured isn’t anyone’s first choice. Some injuries become so pervasive that they impede every facet of a person’s life, including their ability to work. For injuries resulting in an inability to work for one year or more, Social Security Disability benefits are a benefit the injured should seek out.
Many people worry about the effort put into making the request for Social Security Disability benefits for injuries, only for the possibility for them to be denied. We cannot let a potentially unwanted outcome stop us from seeking the benefits one so desperately needs. Even if a claim is initially denied, one can try again. The denial could have been for a reason as silly as missing paperwork or other missing criteria the Social Security Administration needs in order to approve one to receive disability benefits.
At Gardberg & Kemmerly PC Attorneys at Law, our knowledgeable staff is here to support those who are seeking SSD benefits. Injuries can really step in the way and disallow a person from making a living wage. For those that paid into Social Security wages in both time and money, according to SSA thresholds, those funds are there to support injured workers. Seeking those benefits is an injured person’s right.
In all honesty, those suffering from a debilitating injury may have few options available to them. That’s why it’s considered disability insurance – it is meant for those who are otherwise unable to fend for themselves. Consider an injury-related disability and how it can negatively impact a person’s life. Receiving Social Security Disability benefits for injuries is a potential bright spot to give the injured the support they need.
