Serious accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, without any notice. In these cases, people may not be able to react quickly enough to avoid getting hurt. Workplace accidents, falls, car accidents and other accidents can all lead to injuries that keep people out of work. In particular, spinal cord injuries can be devastating.
The inability to work can create serious financial strain as people try to recover from spinal injuries. Spinal injuries are often severe and can cause permanent damage. In many cases, years of rehabilitation is necessary for people to try to get back to where they were before the injury. During this time, people may wonder if they qualify for social security disability benefits.
