Social Security Disability Benefits for Injuries Archives

Knee Problems

The knee is the largest weight-bearing joint in the body, carrying most of the body weight when standing or walking. A chronic and severe knee condition can greatly impact the ability to work, though many knee problems are short-lived as they are easily managed through physical therapy, surgery, or medication. To be awarded disability under the Social Security Act, the impairment must persist or be expected to last for twelve months or longer. Diagnoses of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or gout are commonly occurring causes of chronic knee pain.

Blindness doesn't always mean a complete lack of vision

When people think of blindness as a disability, they often imagine it to be absolute. They understand that vision issues like farsightedness or nearsightedness can make it more difficult to see without corrective lenses, and they assume blindness is just the extreme end of the spectrum, where someone's vision has deteriorated -- or been damaged -- so that they can't see at all.

Do I automatically qualify for disability benefits for my burns?

Suffering from burn injuries does not automatically qualify you for Social Security Disability benefits. Just as with any other disability, there are criteria that you must meet to have your application successfully approved.

A brain injury changes you: Get the SSD benefits you deserve

It does not matter how good of shape you were in. If you sustained a serious head injury, you may no longer be able to work. Some traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can require around-the-clock support, and some TBI sufferers may have difficulty walking or talking.

Disability facts you should be aware of

Understanding disabilities in the United States starts with breaking down the statistics and looking at the facts. This can help you form an accurate picture of what disabilities look like, whom they impact, how they change lives and what types of assistance different individuals need.

CDC says 25% of Americans have a disability

If you are living with a disability, whether this is a new development in your life or something you have been living with for some time, you should know that you are not alone. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about 25% of Americans, or one out of every four, have a disability.

A disability is about more than an injury

The Social Security Administration (SSA) carefully evaluates every single case that they get when people claim they are disabled and can no longer work. Every case has its own set of facts and important details. Do not assume that any two cases are the same or that an injury will absolutely qualify just because you know someone else with a similar injury or you read a news report about that type of injury.
