SSD claims and the consultative examination

Before a disabled individual In Iowa or elsewhere is able to recover Social Security disability benefits, he or she must prove to the federal government that he or she meets certain requirements. The specific requirements vary depending on the injury or illness at hand, but one's claim usually must be supported by medical evidence that shows the existence of the condition, its severity, and its effect on the claimant's day-to-day life.

Construction work is amongst the most dangerous in our society. These men and women bravely put their safety on the line in order to build the infrastructure we need to advance our economy and overall well-being. In the process, though, they often perform their duties in close proximity to heavy machinery, fast-moving vehicles and excessive heights. Sometimes, despite utilizing safety equipment provided to them, workplace accidents occur that leave these workers seriously injured.
