Previous posts here have provided our readers with information about applying for disability benefits, ensuring that those benefits continue and taking action if benefits are stopped. One topic that can relate to all of these categories of interest is the capacity of a disabled person to perform some form of work.

There are aspects of serving in the military that are difficult and traumatic. For some people who serve in active duty assignments or in certain types of high-stress roles, the mental effects can be serious.

Serious injuries can leave victims with life-long pain and suffering. Whether a North Carolina resident suffered harm in a vehicle accident, while performing the duties of their work or in another situation, they may discover that even with medical intervention they are still severely limited in what they are able to do.

Charlotte residents who follow the news may have read stories in the last few months about the long waits that some Americans are facing as they apply for Social Security disability benefits. Men, women, and children who suffer from disabling illnesses are forced to endure months of waiting to find out if they have been approved for the assistance they need to live their lives. Those whose claims are denied may have to appeal the decisions of the Social Security Administration and start their waits over to find out if their decisions will be reversed.
Children are born into loving North Carolina families every day. These families are prepared to provide those kids with whatever love and support that they need to thrive. While many infants enter the world healthy and fully developed, others suffer injuries, illnesses and other problems that affect their capacities to grow and mature. Issues that arise while babies are in utero or during their births can significantly impair their future abilities to learn and live independently.
