Social Security Disability Insurance is an expansive program that may provide injured or disabled Michigan residents with benefits. A person who is unable to work, whether due to a brain injury, a neck injury, or, as this blog reported in a previous post, a spine injury, may qualify for SSDI benefits.
Just because a person has suffered from a spine injury, however, does not automatically mean that he or she will qualify for SSDI benefits. An injured person must document his or her disability and demonstrate that it meets the federal requirements for disability. Specifically, he or she must establish that he or she is not able to work at any substantial gainful employment, and that his or her medical condition will last for more than a year, or result in death.
Adler Stilman, PLLC, is well-versed in the requirements that the SSA considers when evaluating spinal conditions, and has helped prepare Michigan residents’ applications such that they will accurately reflect their disabling medical conditions and their need for benefits.
The attorneys of Adler Stilman, PLLC, recognize that it can be difficult for some Michigan residents to compose an application for SSDI benefits while they are also dealing with the ramifications of serious and painful injuries. The attorneys of Adler Stilman, PLLC, who have more than 45 years of combined legal experience, have assisted clients as they applied for benefits, whether in an initial application or through the appeals process. They have tirelessly advocated for clients seeking Social Security disability benefits for injuries, whether spinal injuries or other injuries.
