Don’t drain your savings account after an accident injury

by | May 17, 2018 | Social Security Disability Benefits For Injuries |

When a person in Alabama is down-on-their-luck, what does this mean exactly? Really, it can be anything that is throwing a person’s life out of whack. For some, this means life-altering injury. An injury affects a person’s health and well-being, and thus affects every facet of their life.

Take, for instance, one’s ability to provide financially for their family. An injury can easily keep a person out of work. It could mean an inability to do the job they once performed with relative ease. In addition, injuries can rack up costly medical bills, even with the help of health insurance. If an injury has kept a person out of work for a year or longer, they may have a case for Social Security disability benefits for injuries. Social Security disability benefits help those who are otherwise disabled due to an injury or illness that has changed their life. The injury must last for one year or longer — there is no support from this source for short-term injuries (lasting less than one year). It is very possible that a person’s savings account will not be able to support them once a person is out of work due to injury.

With living expenses what they are today, it can be jarring to see the way a person’s finances can be destabilized after an injury incident. When it’s your own finances or your loved one’s finances, it can be even more harrowing. Understanding what your new life situation may be after injury can be a tough pill to swallow. However, one must take action in order to get to a better place financially. Attorneys, such as those at Gardberg & Kemmerly PC Attorneys at Law, can provide more information for those wishing to learn more about Social Security disability benefits.
