I am conducting legal research for the state of: Texas
Hey guys. Long time no see
I was wondering if yall could provide the answers i am seeking regarding SSI/SSDI requirements? About 9 months ago my aunt fell down the stairs of her home and fractured her leg in several places. Normally a broken leg is a relatively minor injury (relatively being the operative word LOL) with recovery time under 2 months, however; due to her being unemployed, uninsured and the absents of a community/charity hospital in her area, the people at the ER were only able to put her leg in a splint. Long story short, here she is 9 months later sill just as debilitated as she was the day of the fall. She cannot walk at all, we think the bone is still broken (or possibly grew back wrong) her muscle tissue in her leg is completely gone.
My question is: If her condition is to remain permanent for the rest of her life (I consider this to be the most likely case, but I'm no doctor), would she qualify for some form of disability? I don't know about you, but I consider the inability to WALK pretty serious. Hell, my neighbor gets over 1500 a month and the only thing wrong with him is chronic back pain. I also know a man who gets 900 a month SSI for being Bi-polar...
