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.

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.

Severe burn injuries and disability benefits applications

A significant injury can cause a Charlotte resident to experience life-long pain and suffering. They may not be able to work due to the harm that they have suffered, and as such they may struggle to find ways to make ends meet. As previously discussed on this North Carolina disability benefits blog, injuries can, in some cases, form the bases of disability benefits claims.

Disability benefits for spinal cord disorders

There is no such thing as a good injury but North Carolina residents may be aware that damage sustained to certain parts of their bodies may result in more significant impairments than harm endured to other body parts. For example, a person who suffers a shoulder injury may find that they have difficulty moving their arm or performing lifting duties; a person who suffers a spinal cord injury, however, may lose complete function of their arms and even their legs depending upon the severity and location of their wound.

Help for when an injury keeps you out of work

Getting hurt and not being able to work can be very hard on a Charlotte resident. If their injury is something that they can recover from and that will eventually allow them to get back to work, they may have short-term options for getting financial help until they are back on their feet. If, though, their injury is permanent and disabling they may need a long-term option for staying financially afloat.

Can I get disability benefits after a concussion?

Every year thousands of Americans suffer injuries to their brains when they are involved in accidents and incidents such as falls, vehicle collisions and work-related traumas. While some brain injuries will resolve themselves and will allow Charlotte residents to go back to living their normal lives, others can have devastating and long-lasting effects. This post will discuss traumatic brain injuries and how they may qualify someone for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration.

Can I get both workers' comp and SSD benefits?

As this blog has discussed on previous occasions, a Charlotte worker who gets hurt on the job and winds up with a permanent disability as a result may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits for her injuries.

A disabling injury can be expensive for someone who can't work

Minor injuries are a common occurrence in the lives of Charlotte residents. The daily bumps, bruises and cuts that individuals often accidently self-inflict can cause significant short-term pain but rarely manifest into serious injuries that keep people from meeting their professional responsibilities. From time to time, though, serious accidents and incidents happen that inflict major injuries on their victims and that force hardworking men and women from keeping up with their jobs.

Disability benefits after a back injury

Back injuries can be debilitating conditions for Charlotte workers. They can affect anyone, from laborers who lift heavy objects during the course of their work to office workers who spend much of their time in front of computers. When a person suffers a serious injury to their back they may not be able to get back to the job that they need to provide for their loved ones. The Social Security Administration recognizes a variety of ailments that may affect individuals' backs in its disability listings.

Work-related injury and illness information you need to know

Work-related accidents that result in fatalities usually make the news in Charlotte, so our readers probably know when those events occur. But what some people may not realize is that nonfatal injuries and illnesses that occur due to on-the-job causes are much more common than fatalities.
