Millions of people all across the country suffer debilitating injuries and illness that keep them from earning a living. An inability to work can be financially devastating for accident victims and their families. Fortunately, Social Security Disability benefits are available to people suffering from a variety of medical conditions and injuries.
Many people eligible for SSD benefits suffer from back injuries and conditions such as herniated disks, osteoporosis, and compression fractures. A variety of injuries to the hip, knee, leg, arm, and elbow are also covered. However, physical injuries are not the only ailments covered. Those suffering from neurological disorders, heart conditions, autoimmune diseases, and other illnesses may qualify for SSD benefits. Even those individuals suffering from migraine headaches and chronic fatigue syndrome may qualify for benefits.
