Understanding the impact of a traumatic brain injury

Over the summer this Charlotte-based disability benefits legal blog offered its readers a post on how concussions may serve as the bases of claims for disability benefits. Concussions are a form of brain injury and brain injuries can range in severity from minor to life-threatening. This post will address what traumatic brain injuries are and why they may avail their sufferers to support from the Social Security Administration's disability benefits' programs.

Does having lupus qualify you for disability benefits?

Certain types of illnesses and medical conditions may keep you from working, which may leave you with significant financial concerns. It can be particularly difficult when you are dealing with an illness that is below the surface, such as one that others may not be able to see. This includes lupus, which is a type of autoimmune condition that affects various functions of the body. 

What does it mean to be bipolar?

Everyone has fluctuations in their mood throughout the day. A person may feel frustrated and angry while dealing with a work problem but then may feel happiness and peace a few hours later when they are home playing with their kids. Working through different emotions is a part of practically every North Carolina resident's day, and for most managing emotional variation is a relatively easy process.

Seeking benefits for disabled adult children

When a new baby is born into the world their parents may be overjoyed by the new addition to their family. While many North Carolina parents are able to transition into parenthood without any significant problems or challenges, others may be devastated to learn that their new children have arrived with serious and sometimes life-threatening conditions. While some affected newborns may suffer from treatable illnesses and disorders, others may have to learn to live with their conditions for the rest of their lives.

Keep ambiguity out of your application for disability benefits

A disabling accident or injury can leave a Charlotte resident with years of recovery and the inability to work. This devastating combination can create financial as well as physical hardships in that person's life and may cause them to suffer as they work to find normalcy. However, not all men and women who endure these serious incidents are able to get back to their jobs, and when an injury-based disability claims someone's ability to hold down a job they may need to turn to the Social Security Administration's disability benefits' programs for help.
