Spinal column injuries are extremely serious health problems which frequently lead to lifelong disabilities and complications, creating a significant impairment to your ability to work. The financial hardship imposed by such a situation can be difficult to manage, but in many cases the Social Security Administration (SSA) can offer Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, which help to offset your lost income. These benefits can often allow you to live reasonably well, despite your injury. If you are unable to work due to a back, neck or spine disability, please contact the Social Security disability attorneys at Lowenthal & Abrams, Injury Attorneys for help. Our experienced lawyers are committed to helping you recover the compensation to which you may be entitled.
Eligibility for SSDI
The degree of impairment suffered from a head, neck, or spinal injury can vary greatly from case to case, so it is essential that your application clearly demonstrates that your injury has led to a condition which prevents you from earning a living on your own. The following must all be true for you to qualify:
- The injury prevents you from working for a living
- Your condition is expected to last for at least a year, or has lasted for a year already
- You have paid Social Security taxes on your income for a sufficient amount of time.
A skilled attorney will be able to more clearly and effectively demonstrate that you meet these criteria in your application, giving you a strong chance of approval.
