Social Security Disability Benefits for Injuries Archives

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.

Differences between benefits programs

Michigan workers may think that benefits programs such as Social Security Disability for injuries and Workers' Compensation are essentially the same thing. However, there are some important differences that employees should be aware of.

What options are available for long-term care?

After a severe injury at your Detroit job, you may find that you need long-term care. Your financial obligations do not go away simply because you are not working; however, there are options that allow you to have money so that you can still manage financially. These include Social Security Disability and private insurance.

Social security and back pay

When you are injured and it leaves you disabled there is a serious adjustment process that takes months, not days or weeks, to sort out. Life doesn't pick up neatly the next day and sometimes putting all the pieces back together takes a long time. Opportunities and resources may not come to mind or maybe you are too busy with physical therapy and family matters to attend to the necessary paperwork. Re-learning the basics is a chore, and swimming through bureaucratic red tape is at the bottom of the list.
