As a Louisiana Social Security Disability attorney and a personal injury attorney, I am often asked: “I was hurt in a car wreck; can I apply for Social Security Disability Benefits?”

The answer to this simple question is – it depends.

It depends on your injuries. It depends on your symptoms. It depends on your treatment.

If your disabling injuries keep you from being able to work for 12 or more months, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. 

If your injuries heal in less than 12 months, you are not eligible for Social Security Disability benefits in all likelihood. 

If you or someone you love suffered an injury in a car crash and have questions about Social Security Disability benefits, give us a call at 985-240-9773. We have the experience to guide you through this difficult process of figuring out whether or not you may be eligible for Social Security or other injury-related benefits.
