Understanding the Risk of Disability | Disability Lawyer | Florida
Nancy Cavey, author of “Robbed of Your Piece of Mind”, wants you to know that disability is a real risk. Over 54 million Americans or 19% of the population was considered disabled based on the December 2008 US Census Bureau Report.
Other disability facts include:
1. Almost 90% of disabling accidents and illnesses are not work related. Auto accidents is a really common disability related case.
2. A disabling injury occurs in American homes every three seconds.
3. Heart Disease, cancer and diabetes are the leading calls of death and disability in the United States.
The most amazing fact of all that almost 25% of today twenty year olds would become disabled before reaching the age of 67 according to the Social Security Administration fact sheet.
We at The Law Offices of Nancy L. Cavey recommend that you have a private individual disability insurance policy to protect your income and standard of living. Be sure that you are covered when a disabling injury occurs. For more information on Long Term Disability or Short Term Disability be sure to request our Book “Robbed of Your Peace of Mind.”
