Recently, this blog discussed post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD and the harmful effects it can have on individuals. For far too many, this medical condition drastically reshapes the way they live their lives. Many New Yorkers who suffer from PTSD are unable to function well in public, which can affect their ability to socialize with friends and family and even hold a job.
When a medical condition like PTSD disallows an individual from earning a living, a sufferer may be able to qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Although these benefits cannot remedy all of the issues associated with PTSD, it can allow an individual to recover compensation he or she needs to afford medical care and maintain a decent standard of living.
However, before you can successfully recover SSD benefits for illness or injury, you have to prove that your specific medical condition meets the federal requirements for it to be deemed a disability. Every condition has its own definition, so you'll need to be knowledgeable about the law as to how it applies to your specific situation. With this information, you can ten build legal arguments that show that you meet the federal requirements. At Jonathan H Poznansky, Attorney at Law, our legal team is dedicated to helping disabled individuals build the strongest claim possible under the circumstances.
