SSDI Lawyers for Auto Accident Victims
The impact of an auto accident on your life does not end after the crash. The injuries you sustained may be minor or severe, but almost any injury could potentially prevent you from holding gainful employment.
Without being able to work, the hospital bills, medical costs, and other expenses associated with the accident may be difficult to pay, but Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) can help.
If you were in a car accident and need disability benefits, Phillips Disability, P.C., will fight for what you deserve. Our team of highly trained legal professionals specialize in recovering compensation for you when your car accident leaves you too injured to work.
Injuries That May Qualify For Benefits
Many people worry about whether they qualify for SSDI benefits, as the Social Security Administration is historically rigid in making this determination. Below are a few of the types of car accident injuries that qualify for SSDI:
- Arm injuries
- Back and spinal injuries
- Brain damage
- Hip injuries
- Leg, knee and ankle injuries
- Neck injuries
If you or someone you love sustained any of these injuries from an auto accident, you may wish to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. Leg injuries specifically have a higher chance of qualifying you for disability if the injury prevents you from walking. However, if your physician has told you that you are unable to work SSDI benefits may apply regardless of the injury.
Am I Eligible For Benefits?
No matter what type of injuries you're suffering from, its important that a licensed medical health professional determine that your injuries are severe enough to prevent you from holding gainful employment. This determination can bolster your claim for compensation.
If you're suffering with a physical or mental injury, a doctors prognosis is crucial in the decision Social Security will make about your claim.
Claims of mental or emotional distress may be severe enough to prevent you from working, but you will need a recommendation from a mental health professional, such a psychiatrist, to gain disability benefits because of it. Not all injuries are visible to others. A condition like traumatic brain injury (TBI) can easily be disabling if you are unable to complete tasks, have memory problems or more.
