Disability due to a work-related injury may qualify you for Social Security Disability benefits under Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The Social Security Administration defines disability as the inability to perform "substantial gainful activity" for a period which has lasted or is expected to last 12 continuous months. Applications for SSDI that are incomplete or have errors may result in delays in adjudicating your claim. Bring your paperwork in if you would like to have us assist with the process of filing a claim or appealing a denial.
Social Security Disability Claims may result from a wide range of factors. Examples include:
- temporary or permanent disability from back injuries, whether caused by an accident or repetitive trauma
- mental disorders, including depression secondary to physical injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder
- construction accidents and shipyard accidents
- pulmonary disease caused by exposure to asbestos or other dangerous chemicals
- failure of heavy equipment and power tool accidents
- and, accidents and injuries that happen to people in everyday life including automobile accidents, heart attacks, or other physical injuries sustained by working individuals
