What physical impairments can cause inability to work?

When it comes to ailments that may affect how a person feels and how they operate on a day-to-day basis, there are an endless number of conditions that could affect a person. The Social Security Administration details information on the type of physical impairments that can qualify a Chattanooga resident to receive social security disability benefits for injuries. This information is thorough.

With a list this extensive, it is hard to imagine that any illnesses or injuries leading to health problems could be left out. The list is is separated by area of injury or illness including musculoskeletal injuries like back injuries and neck injuries. Other categories like special senses and speech include conditions in which a person's sight or hearing may have been affected. They even have a special category titled endocrine disorders.

In short, the list of injuries that can render one qualified to receive SSDI benefits are comprehensive and quite detailed. It is often the case that a physical impairment is listed on the SSA's website. Simply finding out that a condition qualifies for SSDI benefits is not enough however. One must prove that this condition is not only present, but debilitating to one's work ability, among other points.

Truly, there likely isn't many worse situations than one in which a person can no longer support themselves. Financial aspects can become a real burden for those suffering due to an injury or illness. Sometimes an illness manifests after suffering an injury. There is support available for those who need it.
