Oftentimes, a person who is injured in an accident and believes that they will no longer be able to return to work heads straight for the Social Security disability process. Unfortunately, the system is created to prevent this type of event from occurring, and only a skilled
Raleigh personal injury lawyer will be able to help you with your claim. If you filed an application for
Social Security disability benefits or
Supplemental Security Income and found that your application was
denied, you are not alone. In order to obtain Social Security benefits, you must have an injury that has lasted over a year or one that will result in
death. If your injury just occurred, you may be able to seek
workers' compensation or a
personal injury lawsuit to recover the financial compensation you need during the current time.
When a person is injured at their place of employment or due to the negligent actions of another person, they may be eligible to recover a different type of temporary benefit. If the injury persists for over a year, then the victim may be able to file for benefits through the Social Security Administration. After being involved in an accident, do not hesitate to contact a Raleigh personal injury attorney from the Whitley Law Firm. The legal team can inform you on your rights to seek temporary compensation to cover medical expenses and loss of wages until you can qualify for disability benefits.
