Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer
When a person sustains a physical injury that prevents him or her from working, that person may be entitled to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. These benefits are designed to financially help people who can’t work because of a physical injury. There are many types of physical conditions and disabilities that would qualify for SSD benefits – they include back pain, fibromyalgia, heart conditions, arthritis, seizures, stroke, Crohn’s disease, cancer, and diabetes. This list is by no means all inclusive and is only a partial list to show the wide range of disabilities and conditions that are covered. If you are uncertain if you qualify, contact Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, Tony Adderely today for a free case evaluation.
Unfortunately, the biggest flaw with the social security system is in the system’s application review process. The Social Security Administration (SSA) is notoriously strict when it comes to requiring proof of a condition or disability. In fact, the SSA is so strict, that a large number of the applications which the agency denies belong to those with very real and very serious medical conditions.
As a general rule, the SSA only approves applications for benefits when the applicant’s reported disability or condition will prevent or is expected to prevent the person from working for at least 12 months. Even though they may be diagnosed with a qualifying condition, SSD applicants may be unsure or confused about the application process, or how to go about compiling the evidence required to appease the SSA’s application review officials.
