Permanent Disability Lifetime Costs and Benefits

A victim who is permanently disabled has suffered the loss of abilities necessary for normal function in life. Permanent disability can involve mental impairment, loss of a limb or body part, or loss of use of parts of the body, as in cases of paralysis.

The Social Security Administration reports that roughly 9 million people are receiving Social Security Disability benefits. According to data from Cornell University Disability Statistics, 15.8 million men and women between the ages of 18 and 64 report a work-limiting disability.

At Kraft & Associates, P.C., we help permanently disabled people pursue the compensation they need and deserve to move forward with their lives. If you have become permanently disabled because of an accident that was someone else’s fault, our experienced personal injury lawyers are ready to help you recover compensation for your losses, including the lifetime costs of your disability.

You may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits if a total disability has taken away your ability to earn a living. Our lawyers are well-versed in the Social Security system and the SSD application process. We can protect your rights and help you pursue the benefits you are entitled to receive.
