Social Security Disability Benefits for Injuries Archives

Does Social Security disability pay for physical therapy?

After a personal injury resulting in disability, you may have the option for physical therapy either as part of your recovery or to prevent further degradation and pain caused by your disability. When selecting a Michigan-area physical therapist, you may find yourself worrying about costs incurred by regular physical therapy sessions. If you are on Social Security disability benefits, do you have the option of seeking coverage for your therapy through Social Security?

Is Social Security disability enough for injury-related expenses?

In a scenario you never hoped to deal with in your life, a workplace injury has left you temporarily or permanently disabled. While workers' compensation under Michigan law may be an option for medical expenses, what if you need long-term care well beyond what any monthly pension or settlement payment can cover? Can you find appropriate coverage for your medical expenses with Social Security disability benefits?

Social Security disability benefits and spine injuries

Spine injuries can happen over time from degenerative disorders, or can be the immediate and catastrophic result of injury. Anything from a workplace incident to a motor vehicle accident on the streets of any Michigan city can leave you incapacitated, and in need of support from Social Security disability benefits. At Adler Stillman, PLLC, we understand the pain and suffering that can come with loss of capability, loss of independence, loss of income and loss of quality of life associated with spine injuries.

Obesity and SSDI requirements

Although you may think that obesity is not a disability, it is sometimes viewed as one by the Social Security Administration. There are certain requirements a case of obesity usually needs to meet to qualify for disability benefits. We at Adler Stilman, PLLC, know it is important for you to understand these requirements.

When joint disease is eligible for disability benefits

If you have joint pain in Michigan, you may think that this automatically allows you to qualify for benefits through SSDI. This is usually not the case, though, and we at Adler Stilman, PLLC, know that it is beneficial for you to understand when your joint pain can qualify for disability benefits.

Social Security disability qualifications for arthritis

When you suffer from arthritis in Michigan, you know that this disease can have a far-reaching impact on your life. You may not realize, though, that if your case of arthritis is particularly severe, it may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. At Adler Stilman, PLLC, we know that sometimes it is difficult to tell whether or not your arthritis meets the requirements.

The federal requirements for Social Security disability benefits

People in Michigan who believe they may qualify for Social Security disability payments need to have a realistic sense of the type of aid that may be available to them. The US Social Security Administration provides several types of disability benefits to eligible applicants. Each type of benefit requires different criteria to be met for eligibility.

Receiving Social Security after a brain injury

After sustaining a brain injury in a car accident, some Michigan residents may find that they need to take time off from work to heal. A previous blog discussed common symptoms of these wounds. Social Security Disability benefits may sometimes be available so that people can keep up with expenses in the weeks and months it takes to heal. We at Adler Stilman, PLLC, understand that applying for disability benefits can initially seem confusing.

Qualifying for disability benefits with a heart condition

When you think of conditions which qualify for Social Security Disability for injuries, you may not initially think of heart problems. However, some cardiovascular diseases are considered to be disabilities. At Adler Stilman, we understand that SSDI benefits can sometimes seem complicated.

Did you suffer a spinal cord injury? Stand up for your rights

Whether you suffered a serious spinal cord injury in a work accident, car accident or some other accident that was due to the negligence of another person, you have rights. This type of injury affects you for the rest of your life. Even if you make a full recovery, it could take a significant amount of time and resources.
