A Michigan resident who has been injured in an accident or at work may suffer from a partial or total disability, which compromises the person’s ability to get a job. In such cases, the employee’s financial challenges can be compounded by the medical costs that the employee needs to recuperate and rehabilitate. However, the federal government offers Social Security disability benefits to such claimants who have suffered a temporary or permanent disability as a result of the injury.

In order to prove the claim for the Social Security disability benefits for injuries, the claimant must go through numerous, extensive paperwork. Robert D Paulbeck, Attorney at Law, with his decades of experience in the field, has been able to help many claimants negotiate through the legal procedures and documentation that is imperative to make a case for such federal benefits.

The Social Security Administration or SSA has some specific categories that the claimant needs to qualify for in order to claim Social Security disability benefits under the federal law. However, in recent times, the SSA has devised a policy of looking into every case individually and holistically to understand the extent of the injury as well as the impairment that the individual claimant might suffer in getting back to his job because of the injury.

Thus, the claimant’s attorney usually brings forth evidence in the form of medical documents and history as well as employment documents, income and other evidence to prove the need for Social Security disability benefits. The SSA also typically looks into the nature of the injury itself to determine the amount of benefits for which the claimant is eligible. Therefore, the body part or organ that has been affected plays a big part in determining the amount of Social Security benefits that the claimant can get from the SSA.
