Workplace Related Accidents
About 4 percent of those receiving SSDI have suffered workplace injuries, many more suffer from some acquired workplace illnesses.
Some common types of workplace accidents that lead to a disability include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Falls from scaffoldings
- Vehicle accidents
- Falling object accidents
- Accidental exposure to dangerous chemicals
Although accidents are a common cause of workplace disability, some injuries are caused by repetitive motions and constant exposure to certain elements, such as loud noises or dangerous chemicals.
Disabilities Recognized By The SSA
One of the ways in which the Social Security Administration (SSA) determines if you may be eligible for benefits is by checking if your condition is found in the list of disability conditions. These conditions are considered so severe that they automatically mean the individual is disabled.
Some recognized disabilities include:
- Soft tissue injuries, such as sprains, strains
- Chronic joint pain and stiffness
- Hearing loss
If your condition is not on the list, the SSA determines if it is of equal severity to the condition on the list. Even if your condition is not listed, you may be entitled to file a claim for SSDI.
