If you or a family member is straining at work in ways that you have not experienced before, it may be due to a longstanding condition partially affected by age. The body changes after 50, as do the rules regarding social security disability. Perhaps there is a nagging pain or dizziness even while doing the same job that you have been doing normally for twenty years. Perhaps there are changes in how you do your job and it is causing increased stress. No matter what the case, it is important to look into what could be causing these issues and what could happen if ignored.
No one wants to be injured. There can be severe repercussions with any determination. If you are now in your fifties, the same behaviors that got you through your 20s and 30s may not apply. Working with severe strains could lead to far more severe problems down the line. If you are working with high blood pressure, the chances of heart issues and strokes considerably increase. When working with arthritis, the chance of making errors at work, including those that could cause severe injuries also go up. That strain in your back or side may not just be something that will pass. Aging also brings on increased chances of hernia, stones, and other ailments. If you believe that yourself or a loved one is injured, make sure to contact your family doctor and schedule an appointment. If you have serious, chronic issues you may need to contact an attorney to see if you are disabled.
