Aside from the pain and suffering and the medical expenses, one of the biggest stresses Columbia, Missouri, residents might face because of a serious work-related or other injury is lost wages. Such occurrences are never expected, but unfortunately they can happen. If the injury leaves a person permanently unable to work, the financial consequences can be devastating.
Although some injuries may be the responsibility of an employer or negligent party to pay for, in many cases, there is either simply not enough money available to cover all losses or the injury simply does not qualify. In these types of cases, Social Security disability benefits may be an injured person's only hope for replacement income, unless of course the person was also carrying private insurance.
