On-the-job traffic crashes and disability

Every day, people who are employed in many different fields find themselves on the road as part of their job duties. Those who drive large trucks, delivery trucks or taxis may become involved in a work-related traffic crash. It is important to understand that many other fields may involve the risk of a traffic accident for workers in Los Angeles and all across California. For example, someone who is part of a road construction crew may be hit by a vehicle, or someone who works in an office could be struck by a reckless driver while they are running an errand.

Sadly, on-the-job crashes can be especially devastating and happen unexpectedly. Someone who is perfectly healthy and capable of performing their job responsibilities well may all of a sudden find themselves hospitalized and unable to walk, let alone work. Under these circumstances, the physical, financial and emotional impact of such an event can be overwhelming. Fortunately, certain options may help victims recover from these crashes, such as disability benefits.

For many injured workers, Social Security Disability is a lifeline. However, it is crucial to approach the process correctly and make sure that an application is filled out correctly. Some people may be hesitant to apply for these benefits because they worry about being stigmatized or because they do not think that they will be approved. However, it is crucial to thoroughly review the ins and outs of an employee's circumstances and pursue any resources that are available to help a disabled worker.
