Occupationally Specific Impairments
Many disabilities begin in the workplace. Chronic exposure to physical strain or unhealthy conditions can lead to injury or illness down the road.
Hazardous jobs such as construction, industrial work and manual labor are not the only sources of chronic medical conditions. Office workers also suffer long-term disabilities as a result of repetitive movements or environmental factors.
How To Continue Making Ends Meet
The most important question with a work-related impairment is whether you are able to continue earning living as a result. Workers’ compensation might not be your only option for making ends meet. If your disability is likely to last a year or more, you may also qualify for disability benefits through Social Security.
