If you think about worker's compensation, you may think that it is only available for injuries such as falls from ladders or loss of fingers in a machinery accident. Although these sudden injuries certainly qualify for workers' compensation, what happens if you have spent years working your job and slowly develop injuries as a result? Fortunately, you may also qualify for compensation in this case.

Medical marijuana bill passes Pennsylvania House

When an employee is injured on the job, the treatment for his or her injuries is usually very specific. A cut might require stitches; a broken bone may require surgery to set it. However, when workplace illnesses arise, there is often less known about these conditions. In many cases, the treatments that really do work might be new or experimental. One may wonder if the medical marijuana bill that just passed the Pennsylvania House would have an effect on various workplace illnesses.

Which conditions qualify for SSD benefits?

If you have a medical condition that prevents you from working, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. However, before you are able to receive benefits, you must first prove that you meet the definition of "disabled" under the law. In general, you must show that you are unable to do any substantial work because of a medical condition that has lasted or is expected to last at least one year, or is expected to result in your death.
