What You Need To Know About Disability

By Mark T. Flickinger, JD on June 11, 2019

 

Accidents happen. In today’s world, danger can be found anywhere you look. Unfortunately, many adults find themselves in the terrible situation of realizing they are unable to work and support their family due to an accident, negligence, illness, or injury. What would you do if you found yourself in that position? Do you have enough savings to pay medical bills and support your family?

For many Americans, there is disability set in place. Social Security offers some compensation and support for individuals facing injuries or illness that prevent their being able to hold a steady job. Some life and health insurance may also provide relief in the circumstance of disability. In a select number of situations, legal intervention may be necessary to get you the help and compensation that you deserve.

What is Disability?

To qualify for a disability you have to prove that your condition prevents you from substantial gainful activity or SGA for short. This means that your condition, whatever it may be, prevents you from getting or holding a job that can support your needs or your family. Disability can be caused by a variety of things, from injury to physical or mental illness. The severity is key in determining if you qualify for disability.

The process of qualifying for disability can be long and complicated. There is extensive paperwork and documentation required from everyone from medical professionals to current and past bosses. Proving disability can be difficult, especially if the disability has been caused by the mistake or negligence of another party.
