Seeking SSDI for those who have lost a limb

A variety of injuries can cause serious harm to Pennsylvania residents. Some of the most serious injuries are amputations. Amputations can occur in a variety of situations, including workplace accidents. When an unexpected accident causes the loss of a limb, the victim can suffer a variety of serious harms. Not only will the person need to adjust to living without the limb, the person may need to deal with the emotional and physical side effects from the amputation.

In some cases, people may experience phantom limb pain or they may have other issues with a residual limb. People may also need serious rehabilitation or other medical equipment -- such a prosthetic -- in order to live their lives.

Depending on the severity of the amputation, Pennsylvania residents may not be able to work following such a serious accident. Therefore, these individuals are left to deal with the side effects of the amputation, and they are doing so with limited financial resources.

When people are unable to work because of an injury, they may pursue Social Security disability benefits. Our law firm understands the importance of these benefits for amputees. We can help those who have an accident injury apply for SSDI benefits. With these benefits, Pennsylvania residents can receive monthly income while they are unable to work.

Our compassionate attorneys understand the SSDI application process. We know how important SSD benefits are, and we are dedicated to working on behalf of injured workers. We also understand that an amputation often causes lifelong challenges. Our firm works to ensure that these challenges do not also cause financial devastation.

For more information about how amputees can seek help in obtaining SSD benefits, please see our website.
