The Federal Government has set up a safety net for people who are seriously injured. This is known as social security disability. If you believe that you are unable to work, either as a result of an injury on the job or a combination of an injury and a pre-existing condition, you may qualify for social security disability benefits. As a general rule, you need to have worked 5 of the last 10 years, but that is not set in stone.
If you qualify for social security disability, you will receive money for your injuries and medical care. It is best to speak with an experienced attorney for legal advice, but you should maintain records of medical documents, as well as correspondence with your employer and the insurance company.
If you or a loved one has been injured at work in New Jersey and believe you might be eligible for social security disability, please call New Jersey workers' compensation attorney Manfred Ricciardelli at 877-360-0183 to get straight answers about your rights and a free consultation.
