Recognizing the dangers of construction sites

Many people who walk or drive past a construction site are intimidated by the massive equipment and supplies being used, moved and installed at the site. It comes as no wonder that if an accident were to occur at a construction site, the results often leave victims with serious or catastrophic injuries.

An overview of spinal injuries

One of the most sensitive and vulnerable parts of the human body is the spine. The spinal cord contains nerves that connect from the brain to the rest of the body. Protecting the nerves are vertebrae, which are rings of bone that form the back bone or spinal column.

Spring means active people, potential for injuries

The signs of spring are all around us, and while many people embrace the change of seasons and the warmer weather that comes with it, it also means that people will be more active while enjoying their outdoor recreational activities.

How could back pain affect an Atlanta resident's ability to work?

Back injuries are fairly commonplace and can be very incapacitating for workers in Atlanta. Many people find that their ability to work is severely compromised by a back injury. Often, a back injury will manifest itself as severe back pain. This blog post will provide a little bit of information on back pain. Individuals suffering back pain should visit a doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

The relationship between age, work injury and social security

Most Georgia residents will work full-time jobs the majority of their lives. A popular age to retire is often age 65. If an adult works full time from the age of adulthood, 18-years-old, until age of retirement, which is often 65, they will have worked 47 years. In those 47 years, it is very possible to assume that one may become injured, ill or otherwise unable to work. Some workers suffer injury or illness due to an incident or exposure at work and it can impact the rest of their lives.

Navigating SSDI for work-related injury and others

The legal system can be a difficult place to navigate for Georgia residents who have not encountered it before. Making matters worse, people are often thrust into the legal system at an unexpected time and not by their own choice. This is typically the case when individuals present a claim for disability benefits after they have suffered a work-related injury.

Are SSDI benefits offset from workers' compensation benefits?

Every month, many Georgia residents face financial difficulties when paying their bills. It can be hard to stretch a paycheck to meet a person's monthly obligations even when times are good, but this challenge becomes much more troublesome when a person suffers a work-related injury that leaves him or her unable to work.

For work-related injury, SSDI benefits may be lifeline

Georgia residents work hard to provide for themselves and their families. It can take many weeks, months or even years to establish a successful career in one's given field, but all of this hard work can be compromised when an individual suffers a work-related injury that leaves the person unable to work.

ALJ's denial of disability benefits overturned on appeal

Georgia residents place a great deal of trust in their doctors and other medical professionals. Unfortunately, this same level of trust is not always followed by others during the process of evaluating a claim for Social Security disability benefits.
