Millions of Americans find out as they age that their bodies don’t react in the same way that it used to. If a person is injured at 25 their recovery time could be significantly shorter with far fewer repercussions than after the age of 50. As a person is heading towards retirement age, it is not only the severity of the injury that is important, but the effects on them for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately for many they do not realize these risks until it is too late. If you or a loved one is injured around or after the age of 50 it is important to recognize some of the risk factors that could keep them from working again. These can include:
- Severe back injury that can cause difficulty standing or even sitting
- Foot injury that can affect mobility
- Injury of the hand or hands that could affect the ability to use certain tools
- Brain injuries that could cause dizziness, constant headaches, or inability to function in a workplace
- Tearing of muscles needed to stand or lift objects
As you or a loved one approaches retirement age, you should not have to worry about injury around every corner and its repercussions. If you do suffer one of these mishaps, make sure that you have an attorney that can assist in determining your ability to work and is able to fight for you if you are disabled.
An injury or illness can turn your life upside down. Many people do not realize that social security offers a safety net. They have several programs in particular. One is social security disability income otherwise know as SSDI. Another is Supplemental Security Income commonly called SSI. Both of these program can pay you money under the right circumstances.
The Social Security Administration does a fair job of explaining these programs. What they do not do is explain How to win your social security disability claim in detail. What follows are some resource pages from the social security disability web site with hot links to take you there. Always remember that applying with out the advice of an experienced lawyer could cost you dearly. So make the free call now before it is too late.
