On-the-job injuries are typically associated with potentially dangerous environments, such as construction sites, manufacturing facilities, and healthcare centers. However, work injury accidents can take place in an office setting as well. No matter where your injury occurred, it is important to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits after suffering an injury or illness due to your work conditions, environment, or responsibilities.
There are a number of documents you will need when filing your injury claim and applying for workers’ compensation benefits. This includes a copy of the initial injury report you provided to your employer, as well as copies of medical documents outlining your diagnosis, treatment plan, and rehabilitation needs.
Working with a workers’ comp lawyer will help to increase your chances of being awarded the benefits you deserve following an injury. Make sure you obtain rightful compensation after an on-the-job injury by contacting the Philadelphia, PA workers’ compensation lawyers with Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo at (215) 253-7629.

Social Security Disability Insurance is a federally-funded program designed to protect disabled workers by providing insurance benefits and financial compensation. In order to qualify for SSDI, you must meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of disability—in which your disability is expected to last for at least 12 months or result in death, your disability prevents you from doing the work you did before, and you are unable to adjust to different employment tasks. While your Philadelphia Social Security lawyer can help you file for SSDI coverage or appeal an initial denial, it is important to educate yourself on the different types of anxiety-related disabilities and disorders that are covered by SSDI.
Individuals suffering from generalized anxiety may qualify for SSDI if they exhibit three out of the four symptoms: autonomic hyperactivity, motor tension, vigilance and scanning, and apprehensive expectation.
SSDI coverage may be provided to individuals who are suffering from a persistent irrational fear of a specific activity, situation, or object. However, this fear must result in the intense need to avoid the feared item or activity at any cost.
Recurrent Panic Attacks
You may be eligible for SSDI if you suffer from severe panic attacks at least once per week that occur suddenly due to the onset of fear, intense apprehension, or feelings of doom.
Obsessions or Compulsions
Obsessive compulsive disorder is ground for SSDI benefits if it causes extreme distress on a regular basis. Individuals who are plagued by intrusive memories of a traumatic experience may also be eligible for SSDI.
In order to be eligible for SSDI for an anxiety-related disability, you must not only show medical documentation of the aforementioned conditions, but also prove that they significantly restrict your daily living activities, make it difficult to maintain your social functioning skills, or interfere with your ability to maintain concentration or pace. Find out if you qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance by contacting Pennsylvania Social Security lawyers, Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo at (215) 253-7629 today.

A Social Security Disability hearing is not like a court appearance; rather, it is an opportunity for a judge to review your claim for Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI. This video takes a closer look at the Social Security Disability Hearing process.
After reviewing all the pertinent information and listening to your testimony, a judge will determine if you qualify for disability benefits under the definition of “disabled” by the United States Social Security Administration. In some cases, the judge may require you to see a second physician before awarding benefits. Watch the full video to learn more about the rest of the SSDI hearing process and the additional parties involved.
