A Stroke and Receiving Social Security Disability Benefits

Your brain is the center of your nervous system. Your brain monitors and regulates your body’s actions and reactions. It continuously receives sensory information. Your brain rapidly analyzes this data and then responds by controlling your bodily actions and functions. In order for your brain to function like it should, it requires a constant supply of blood from which it receives the glucose and oxygen that it needs. A stroke is when the supply of blood to a part of your brain is interrupted or severely reduced. A stroke is also referred to in other ways. It is also referred to as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), brain attack, cerebrovascular disease, cerebral hemorrhage, ischemic stroke, stroke- ischemic and CVA. There are two main types of stroke. They are ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke. Ischemic stroke is the most common, accounting for about 80 to 90% of all strokes. Hemorrhagic stroke accounts for the other 10 to 20% of strokes. There are two common types of ischemic stroke. They are thrombotic stroke and embolic stroke. There are also two types of hemorrhagic stroke. They are intracerebral hemorrhage and subarachnoid hemorrhage. A TIA (transient ischemic attack) is sometimes referred to as a ministroke. It is a brief episode in which you experience signs and symptoms that are similar to what you would have in a full-blown stroke. It should be thought of as a warning that you may be in danger of having a major stroke. Somewhere around 600,000 strokes occur in the United States each year. Around 150,000 of these strokes are fatal, making stroke the third leading cause of death in the United States and the number one cause of disability. The incidence of stroke is the same for men and women. However, women are more likely to die from stroke than men. Ischemic stroke occurs more often in people over the age of 65, while hemorrhagic stroke occurs more frequently in people of a younger age. There are some signs and symptoms that may be an indication of a stroke. These include: You or a loved one may have had a stroke. A stroke and/or complications resulting from it may have resulted in you or your loved one’s disability and need for financial help. You or your loved one may be thinking about applying for the financial assistance that you need from the Social Security Administration by applying for Social Security disability benefits or disability benefits because of the disability caused by a stroke and/or complications resulting from it. You or your loved one may have already applied and been denied by the Social Security Administration. If you or your loved one considers reapplying or appealing the denial, think carefully about this fact. The simple truth is that people who have a disability lawyer fighting for them like the one you will find at are approved more often than people who are not represented by a disability attorney.
