Social Security Disability Benefits for Injuries Archives

How can you return to work with a spinal cord injury?

Workers in Michigan who suffer from spinal cord injuries may feel like returning to work is next to impossible, which adds to all the other life changes they have to consider. For those who want to return to work, there are numerous accommodations that employers can, and are required, to make to assist the employee in coming back and earning an income again. The services and support are provided in a number of ways.

How to get benefits for a traumatic brain injury

Residents in Michigan who have had trauma to the brain more than likely suffer from some type of a brain injury. While these can vary from mild to severe, it can be scary for anyone dealing with the repercussions. Those with severe traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are more than likely not able to function at normal capacity, resulting in the inability to work and earn income. Help for these sufferers may come from social security disability benefits.

Can you get disability benefits for mental issues?

Living with a mental illness can be challenging, and it can also make it difficult to work on a regular basis. Employees in Michigan who suffer from long-term and persistent mental issues may be able to receive social security disability benefits if they meet certain criteria.

How do survivors' benefits work for Social Security Disability?

Social Security offers a program called survivors' benefits in which the surviving spouse of someone receiving Social Security benefits may be eligible to receive their benefits on death. If your spouse has passed and you are left figuring out how to cope with life alone in your Michigan home, you may need the help benefits can provide. If your spouse was receiving Social Security Disability benefits, however, how does that change your eligiblity for survivors' benefits? Are you able to apply to receieve your spouse's disability benefits as a widow or widower?

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.
