Disability Awareness Survey Results

The Council for Disability Awareness has reported on its 2010 Consumer Disability Awareness Survey. The results are interested, in that there is a disconnect between perceptions of the public and reality. As one example, most surveyed believed that disability was most likely to be caused by an accident, while in reality, less than one in ten claims are the result of injuries, while sicknesses cause the overwhelming majority of disability claims.

The report also indicated that more than one out of four disabilities are caused by muscle or bone disorders, such as back problems, joint pain and muscle pain. Cancer is the second leading cause of disabilities, with 15% of all claims. Cardiovascular claims have increased and are now the third leading cause of impairment.

An alarming statistic is that the odds of a healthy 35-45 year old male during his working career of becoming disabled is about 1 in 6.

If you have an impairment, or if your ability to work has become compromised, you should consult with the attorneys at Frankel & Newfield, P.C., who can guide you through the difficult process of filing a claim and securing benefits.
