Working Through Emotional Trauma

I still remember my accident like it was yesterday. One minute I was driving my daughter to school and the next I was waking up in a hospital bed. It was frustrating to deal with the emotional trauma of forgetting an entire week of my life, in addition to stressing about my small child.

I found myself struggling with things as simple as answering the phone, because I was nervous about dealing with another insurance adjuster. Fortunately, by working with a lawyer, I was able to make sense of my situation. I know that you can overcome difficult challenges too, which is why I shared my story on this website.

  • Can You Receive Federal Disability Benefits For A Disability Resulting From Substance Abuse?

    2 April 2016

    When it comes to the determination of Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for those who suffer from both mental illness and a substance abuse issue, it may often seem like a chicken and egg question: which came first, the mental illness or the substance abuse?
