The impact of a neck or back injury

If you've suffered any type of neck or back injury, you know one thing to be true: This can make it extremely difficult for you to go on with your normal life.

Those who find themselves in this position may find it difficult to go to work every day. For this reason, they immediately begin to consider their eligibility for Social Security Disabily benefits and workers' compensation.

While both of these options should be considered, it's important to note that there are limitations. For example, only a small number of specific medical conditions will make you eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.

Not only must you have a qualifying condition, but it must also be expected to remain a problem for a minimum of 12 months. This can include things such as spinal stenosis, an inoperable herniated disk, or nerve root compression.

Did you suffer an injury on the job? In this case, you don't want to focus your time on Social Security Disability benefits. Instead, it's time to learn more about the process of making a workers' compensation claim.

Nobody will ever deny the pain and suffering that comes along with a serious neck or back injury. However, there could be a time when you are denied benefits associated with this type of injury.

At our law firm, we take great pride in helping people who have suffered a neck or back injury and are unable to work. With so many complications and challenges, we urge people to get professional help if they're in this position. This can go a long way in receiving benefits without delay.
