Will you have your SSDI claim accepted the first time?

Even if you love your job, it is not the place you want to be if you are sick or in pain. While you depend on your paycheck to pay your bills, you may wonder if that benefit is worth the effort it takes to get out of bed and get yourself to the workplace. In fact, many days it is almost impossible for you to complete the duties required of your position at your job, and you don't think you will be able to continue long enough to retire.

Should you seek workers' compensation or disability benefits?

If you are unable to work due to an accident at work, you likely need financial support. Missouri readers know they are entitled to certain benefits in the event they suffer an injury in a work accident or because of an occupational illness. However, if you are unable to work for an extended period because of your condition, you may be unsure whether you should file for workers' compensation or disability benefits.

Your rights as an injured worker in Missouri

In Missouri, injured workers have the right to a full recovery after suffering injuries in a workplace accident. You may be aware that you have benefits available to you through workers' compensation, but it is beneficial for every worker to fully understand his or her rights and what to expect from the insurance claims process. 

Seeking disability for chronic migraines

It's not just a headache. Anyone who has ever experienced the debilitating pain of a migraine will agree that your world comes to a crashing halt, and there is little you can do except to ride it out. Millions of people suffer from chronic migraines, and many like you have symptoms that are so severe they can't get out of bed. Often, these symptoms occur several times a month.

Fighting for workers' comp benefits after a denied claim

If you suffered an injury at work, you know how important it is to have financial support. You have medical bills to pay and a family to support, and a work accident can be a significant threat to your financial well-being. However, injured Missouri workers may find that it can actually be quite difficult to secure benefits after a work accident.

The long-term impact of your car accident

A Missouri car accident can change your life in an instant. In one moment you can be driving along, and in the next, you could find yourself with life-altering or debilitating injuries. The injuries you may find yourself with after an accident may be serious, and dealing with the aftermath of a traumatic accident can be even more complex when you were hurt because of the reckless or negligent actions of another driver.

Does chronic pain leave you eligible for disability benefits?

You may be aware of the fact that you could be eligible for disability benefits if you are unable to work due to a medical condition or a serious injury. Sometimes, a disabling condition is the result of an accident or the diagnosis of a serious illness. For you, however, your condition may develop over time as the result of a previous injury.

The real military threat may be in your marriage

There are many factors that contribute to a successful marriage. Certainly, some common items may include open communication, trust, time together and common goals. Trauma and tragedy often stress a marriage to the breaking point, and couples facing such obstacles either come through stronger and more dedicated to each other, or they become distant and withdrawn from one another.

The basics of SSDI and SSI and how it relates to diabetes

Suffering from debilitating effects of diabetes makes your life a challenge. Your daily life consists of the pain, accommodations and maintenance requirements of your condition. In addition, you may worry that you can't adequately provide for yourself or your family anymore. This could lead to depression, anger and other negative consequences, even though the situation may be out of your control.
