There is still much to learn about spinal cord injuries

If you suffer from a serious spinal cord injury, one of the first things that the doctor is going to tell you is that it may never fully heal. They're not trying to be negative or make you feel like it's impossible, but they want to be honest with you about the prognosis. Many times, these injuries do not ever heal. People wind up dealing with them for life.

Can you get Social Security Disability for a broken limb?

Accidents happen and it doesn't take much more than a trip over a curb to wind up with a broken limb -- or maybe two broken limbs. If you suddenly find yourself with both arms or both legs in a cast, however, you can't count on Social Security Disability benefits to help you out unless there are extenuating circumstances.

What are the most common Social Security disabilities?

There are many types of disabilities that could qualify someone to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. These disabilities range in severity from permanently disabling to life-threatening conditions. If you feel that your medical condition is preventing you from being able to do your job for at least a year, or could result in your death, you might also be able to qualify for Social Security benefits.

Proving your disability is a must to obtain compensation

When you suffer an injury, you may not initially think that it will lead down the path to Social Security Disability (SSD). Usually, people think that they will recover, and in many cases, that's true.

Children may qualify for Social Security benefits

When you suffer an injury that results in temporary or permanent disability, you should have the right to seek Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. One thing you may realize is that as a worker who is obtaining Social Security, your children also have a right to obtain it, too.

How much is spent on Social Security Disability each year?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) admits that workplace injuries and illnesses result in many of the disabilities seen in the United States today. As a result, it's important for workers' compensation programs to run in workplaces and to have other safety nets for people who suffer injuries at work. Workers' compensation programs provide close to $60 billion in benefits each year to those who suffer illnesses and injuries.

Social Security wait times delay disability benefits

When there aren't enough people to help with Social Security claims, time becomes the enemy for victims who need benefits. It's tiring to know you deserve and need benefits but you have to wait time and time again for the process that could finally bring you relief.

Social Security Disability Insurance and private insurance facts

If you get hurt on the job, you probably already know that you have a right to workers' compensation as an employee. What you may not be clear about is when you should seek out Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) versus your private disability insurance.
