Social Security Disability is for those who cannot work

Sustaining a serious injury on the job is life-altering. You need to deal with medical costs and lost wages as you recover, however long that puts you out of the job. When you come back to work, you may not be able to perform your duties and responsibilities as easily or efficiently as you once could. Your employer may find it necessary to move you to a different work area. In the process, your wages or your hours could be compromised. Indeed, an injury has consequences well beyond the scars or pains of your body.

While many injuries heal with time and proper medical treatment, sometimes, the pain does not completely go away. After trying everything, you may find that you will never be able to work in the position you once did, or maybe even at all. As the time limit on your workers' compensation approaches, you may find yourself wondering where to turn.

Thankfully, Social Security Disability is in place. This program was created specifically for individuals who are unable to work because of things like mental and physical disabilities as well as chronic or long-lasting injuries that prevent you from going back to work. Social Security Disability provides the necessary financial assistance that you may find yourself needing after an injury on the job.

However, in some cases, attaining these benefits can be a real challenge. Many initial applications for Social Security Disability are denied. After everything, you may need to appear before a judge to get the benefits you deserve. This can be overwhelming and frightening. What information do you need? What will the judge ask you? How do you schedule a court date? How long will it take?

Social Security Disability is made for individuals who can no longer work. However, you may need the assistance of a lawyer to help you get these benefits and answer these questions, and more. In any case, your case will have a better chance of success with an experienced professional on your side.
