Suffering from a serious injury or illness can be devastating. Not only are there health complications and limitations to worry about, but you may also be very concerned about the financial ramifications of a condition if it is disabling. The combination of mounting medical bills and an inability to work can create an overwhelmingly stressful situation.
To make matters worse, many people in this difficult situation will also learn that their application for Social Security disability benefits is not accepted initially. However, if you are in this situation, you should know that it is possible -- and common -- to file an appeal.
