Can I pursue disability benefits after a disabling car crash?

A car crash is always an unexpected event. If it renders one of the victims permanently disabled, it's even more unexpected. In some of these situations -- and depending on the nature and extent of the disability -- the problem could be a lifelong condition that prevents the injured party from working. In cases like this, you might be able to receive government benefits by pursuing a Social Security Disability (SSD) claim.

What are some of the most difficult problems veterans face?

After serving our nation and risking their lives, United States veterans often end their time with the military without the preparation they need to readjust to civilian life. These problems are difficult -- if not impossible -- to overcome without help and assistance from medical doctors and psychologists in their communities. This is why it's so essential that veterans receive all the medical care and other veteran's benefits that they deserve.

A history of the Social Security Disability program

The Social Security Administration is a vital aid to people with mental and physical disabilities. These individuals, if they are unable to have jobs and earn incomes, may be able to receive benefits to help them pay for their living expenses. In order to qualify for these benefits, however, applicants need to have worked and paid into the Social Security system an adequate number of years.

Can a discharged veteran with war-related mental illness sue?

There is nothing worse than risking life and limb to defend your country, but when returning to the United States, being treated like a second-class citizen, denied the care you require and being forced onto the streets. Nevertheless, this has happened to countless U.S. war veterans who developed mental health problems from their military service careers. Some of these individuals may have the right to sue the military.

Why does Social Security want to know about my work history?

Through the process of applying for Social Security disability benefits, applicants will be required to complete various forms to the Social Security Administration (SSA). There are forms that ask for information about medical treatment and providers. The SSA wants this information in order to determine if the applicant is receiving treatment for disabling conditions and to obtain records from these facilities. The SSA will also ask applicants to complete a form that asks a series of questions about their symptoms and the manner in which their disability(ies) interfere with daily life. This form is intended to allow the applicant to describe in their own words the impact of their disability. Additionally, the Social Security Administration will ask you to complete a questionnaire regarding your work history.

Digestive System Disorders and Disability

The United States Code of Federal Regulations contains an enumeration of disabling conditions and the clinical criteria that must be demonstrated for each condition. Satisfying these criteria should amount in an award of disability benefits. These impairments are known more colloquially in disability law circles as the "listed impairments".
