Social Security Disability Benefits for Injuries Archives

Guiding you through the SSD benefit application process

No one expects to suffer a serious injury. In fact, even when a tragic accident occurs, individuals in Tennessee and elsewhere are probably under the impression that they will quickly recover and return to their normal life. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Whether it was due to an automobile collision, slip-and-fall incident or a workplace accident, if you have suffered a debilitating injury this could greatly impact your life. In some situations, it could be impossible to work, thereby causing you to suffer financial hardships.

Traumatic brain injury and eligibility for SSD benefits

Brain injuries can have a devastating effect on people. It's not uncommon for those with brain injuries to have a very difficult time continuing to work after suffering their injury. Although traumatic brain injuries, or "TBIs," has taken a terrible toll on people's lives in Tennessee, there may be options for those who are no longer able to work. One of these options may be Social Security Disability. It is important for victims of brain injuries to get more information on how the government determines whether a person with a TBI is eligible for SSD benefits.

Helping Tennessee residents with SSD claims

Many residents of Hamilton County, Tennessee, live with physical impairments such as back, neck or spinal cord injuries; knee, hip and joint injuries; heart disease; strokes; and traumatic brain injuries. Physical impairments can also include multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, cancer, arthritis, epilepsy and respiratory disease. One thing these conditions all have in common is that people who live with them may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.

What physical impairments can cause inability to work?

When it comes to ailments that may affect how a person feels and how they operate on a day-to-day basis, there are an endless number of conditions that could affect a person. The Social Security Administration details information on the type of physical impairments that can qualify a Chattanooga resident to receive social security disability benefits for injuries. This information is thorough.

SSDI benefits and the inability to ambulate effectively

Residents of Chattanooga and throughout Tennessee who have suffered an injury that has resulted in an inability to work need to understand how the Social Security Administration defines and assesses certain issues when the person applies for Social Security disability benefits. It is these federal requirements and the failure to fully grasp how they work that can frequently lead to a denied claim of Social Security disability benefits for injury when providing the proper information could have led to an approval.

Brain injury victims benefit from SSDI attorney assistance

Life after a brain injury can be scary and confusing, both for an injured Tennessean and his or her family. A traumatic brain injury will require that an individual and his or her family adapt to a new normal. A patient's new normal may involve exhaustive therapy and rehabilitation appointments as the victim learns how to navigate life under a different set of circumstances. Accordingly, a person with a brain injury may have extensive and overwhelming medical expenses.

Why might Tennesseans receive denied claims for SSD benefits?

Just as there are many reasons why a Tennessee resident might need Social Security disability benefits, there are many reasons why the Social Security Administration might deny an applicant's claim for benefits. It is important to understand some of the reasons that an applicant might receive a denied claim, as this may help some Tennesseans avoid an initial denial, and others to subsequently revise their applications and receive an approval for benefits.

Can victims of traumatic brain injuries receive SSDI benefits?

When a Tennessean suffers an injury, the best case scenario is that he or she will recover fully and quickly, and with as little medical intervention as possible. Unfortunately, however, that is not always the case, and some Tennesseans suffer injuries that leave them permanently disabled. One particularly damaging form of injury that can forever alter a person's life is a traumatic brain injury.

SSDI benefits may be available for Tennessee car crash victims

A Tennessean who has been in a car accident may be reeling from the effects of the accident. Between pursuing a potential personal injury lawsuit, obtaining vehicle repairs and missing time away from work, there can be many repercussions following an accident. Car accident victims may be interested to learn that there may be help for them in the form of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. Depending on their nature and severity, accident injuries may be qualifying injuries for purposes of SSDI benefits.
