There are few things valued more by Georgia residents than personal health. A serious injury can wreak havoc on one’s life, not only in one’s personal life, but also in his or her ability to continue working and earning an income.
When these serious situations arise, individuals need to know where to turn for help. Fortunately, some help may arrive in the form of Social Security disability benefits, which can provide a much needed financial lifeline after a person is unable to continue working.
In order to obtain disability benefits, however, individuals must ensure they meet all of the eligibility requirements and follow the correct process. This can be tougher than it sounds, because the Social Security Administration may look at different kinds of evidence for different kinds of injuries.
For instance, recently this blog discussed the type of evidence that will be considered by the agency when evaluating someone who has a musculoskeletal injury. The agency will typically examine the individual’s record to determine the severity and expected duration of the musculoskeletal impairment. This type of evidence is important because musculoskeletal impairments may improve over time.
Our firm understands the evidence that must be provided to obtain disability benefits for different kinds of injuries. Whether it is a neck injury, spine injury or another kind of injury, we work closely with our clients to examine the facts and circumstances of each case, and put together a compelling argument for disability benefits.
