Brain injury victims may qualify for social security disability benefits

The human brain is incredibly complex and fragile. When a blow or jolt to the head occurs, it's likely that an individual's brain is somehow adversely affected. In some cases, a brain injury may be considered minor. However, research shows that even brain injuries suffered while playing soccer or falling off a bike can take a toll and impact an individual’s memory and ability to process information. In cases where an individual suffers a brain injury in a car or work accident, the symptoms may be more severe and result in permanent disabilities.

Expenses associated with raising autistic children, often costly

Many Georgia residents likely know a family that's been affected by autism. According to the non-profit organization Autism Speaks, an estimated two million men, women and children in the U.S. have been diagnosed as having some form of autism. However, despite the prevalence of the mental disorder, scientists have yet to definitively determine its cause, although both genetic and environmental factors are believed to play a role.

Individuals applying for disability benefits face challenges

An adult or child may be rendered disabled for a number of reasons. Some children are born with genetic conditions that may affect them physically or mentally. Others may become disabled later in life as the result of a work or car accident in which an individual suffer a traumatic brain injury or spinal injury. In other cases, a serious illness or medical condition such as cancer, an autoimmune disease or mental illness may also result in an individual becoming disabled.

Social Security expediting disabled veterans SSDI claims

Veterans in Georgia who are living with a disability should be aware of a new program that could help them receive Social Security Disability benefits faster. The Social Security Administration recently announced a new program to expedite SSDI claim decisions for veterans with disabilities.
