I can't work, but how do I know if I qualify for disability?

Mississippi individuals who struggle with a disabling medical condition may not look like they are affected by a serious illness or issue, but in reality, they may be physically or mentally unable to hold gainful employment.

These individuals may be eligible for certain types of financial support.

Your job may be the cause of your carpal tunnel discomfort

You may know that Mississippi workers have the right to certain financial benefits when they suffer injuries from a work-related accident.

Your car accident may be more than just a pain in your neck

A car accident can result in various types of injuries for both Mississippi drivers and passengers. One of the most common types of car accident injuries is whiplash, and while considered a relatively minor injury, it can still have a major impact on a victim's life. It can be much more than a simple pain in your neck.

The role of your employer after a work-related accident

If you suffered an accident at work, you know the extent to which it can affect multiple areas of your life.

Your cancer diagnosis could qualify you for disablity

Cancer is a serious threat to your health, and it could represent a serious threat to your ability to work and provide for your family as well.

Who or what is actually at fault for your car accident?

If you are suffering from injuries from a recent car accident in Mississippi, you know how quickly your life can change in that one moment of impact. From physical damage to emotional trauma, the impact of a collision can be deep and painful for a long time. It can be especially difficult to know that your accident was not your fault, but rather was the result of the actions of another person.

Problems with scaffolding are a threat to worker safety

Individuals employed in the construction industry in Mississippi may face more risks than people employed in other types of jobs, but these men and women still have the right to a reasonably safe workplace. On job sites, this means eliminating unnecessary hazards and making sure that all equipment is as safe as possible.

Proving that you have a valid claim to disability benefits

Suffering from a medical condition, injury or illness that prevents you from working could mean that you are eligible for Social Security disability benefits. Simply having a condition is not enough; you must complete an extensive application process, part of which includes having sufficient medical documents and other proof that verifies your claim of disability.
