If the accident was my fault, can I still get SSD benefits?

A previous post on this blog mentioned that a Schenectady, New York, resident who gets injured at work may be able to receive Social Security disability benefits by filing an application with the Social Security Administration.

Your injuries must last for at least 12 months and keep you from engaging in gainful employment. There are stipulations in place that can affect how much you can receive. Having a good understanding of the effects can help you to maximize your benefits.
