New Jersey residents who have sustained a back or spine injury, or those who have witnessed a loved one suffering from a back or spine injury, would understand how difficult life can become after that injury. For many people, even the most basic day-to-day tasks can turn into a huge challenge, let alone hold down a full-time job. The challenges are greater for those people who are unable to afford the necessary expenses for the long-term care that victims of spine or back injuries require.
Fortunately, such people can choose to file a claim for Social Security disability benefits provided that they worked for a certain amount of time and paid Social Security taxes. The Social Security Administration includes a number of back and spinal cord conditions on its list of impairments that qualify for SSD benefits. Some examples include vertebrae fractures, herniated disks, cervical disk disease, radiculopathy, spinal stenosis, degenerative disk disease and some other similar conditions.
However, although the SSA offers benefits, many people who want to claim SSD benefits for back injuries face a number of difficulties. Usually, the SSA rejects those claims that are not supported by adequate medical evidence. In other cases, the SSA rejects claims because the applicant did not provide all of the other documents that are necessary for the SSA to approve a claim. Whatever the reason, the fact remains that the person who is suffering from the disability often finds it difficult to make ends meet.
