A sudden injury or accident can be an overwhelming experience. Not only is an individual dealing with the pain associated with the injury, but he or she is also stuck dealing with the medical bills associated with the medical treatment required following the incident. And, in some cases, these injuries are so severe that people are unable to work for an extended period of time. This can be extremely impactful, as it can be challenging to pay the bills.
In these matters, Social Security Disability benefits can be especially valuable, as they can help address medical bills and lost wages while an individual recovers from a disabling injury. The purpose of SSD benefits is to ensure a person can meet his or her basic living needs while unable to work due to a disability.
