Social Security Disability Benefits for Injuries Archives

Can I return to work on Social Security disability?

To qualify for Social Security disability, the disabled individual must suffer from a disability that is so severe it prevents them from working. Some disabled individuals, however, may want to see if they are able to return to work but unsure if they can do so and may wonder if they will lose important disability benefits for trying. Social Security disability (SSD) insurance pays out to disabled individuals the money they paid into the program during their working years.

Rehabilitation options for Social Security disability recipients

After being injured on the job, it may be possible to obtain Social Security disability (SSD) benefits to help with everyday expenses. In addition to the other benefits provided by Social Security disability insurance, the program may also help disabled individuals return to work through vocational rehabilitation options. The Social Security Administration reimburses State Vocational Rehabilitation agencies for the costs of the services they provide to SSD recipients under certain circumstances.

How do brain injuries affect victims?

Many scientists throughout the world agree that the human brain is one of the most complex systems known to man. It is crucial to human life, and we have only just begun to get an understanding of just how complex it is and how it works. But, like every other part of the human body, it can be damaged, and a damaged brain could lead to very serious or catastrophic results.

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.
