Most people do not have the luxury of staying out of the work force. In fact, many Atlanta residents want to work, in some capacity. Most workers imagine that they will be working until approximately the average age of retirement. While most make it this long, some people suffer an injury along the way that makes it difficult or impossible for them to perform work. This makes keeping or securing a job nearly impossible.
Injuries that render Atlanta residents unable to work can happen anywhere at any time. With a family to support, this can be an incredibly challenging situation.
The good news is that Social Security Disability benefits may be available for those who are injured and unable to work. For example, many people suffer from back injuries that can develop into serious persistent conditions that can even result in nerve disorders. For these types of persistent injuries and symptoms, working can be out of the question. At our law firm, we do our best to help our clients apply for and receive Social Security Disability benefits for injuries.
We recognize how challenging an injury can be in terms of performing work and the strain that even daily activities can have on an injured person. Securing SSD benefits begins with an application to seek benefits by the hopeful recipient, or someone representing the would-be recipient. If you are unable to work for 12 months or more, you could qualify for injury benefits. There is a long-list of injuries that commonly qualify for SSD benefits.
