Are you a practicing physician who is licensed in Nebraska? It can take anywhere from 12 to 16 weeks to get a Nebraska medical license. If you’re preparing for your state medical license, one of the most important things to pursue is your physician disability insurance.

As an option often overlooked by physicians, disability insurance offers you an effective measure taken to protect your financial security.

If you become injured from an accident, do you have long-term plans on funding when you’re unable to perform your physician duties? If you get diagnosed with a chronic illness that inhibits your ability to do your job, would your financial stability depreciate considerably? 

Do You Know What Can Injure You?

In 2020, there were almost 30,000 motor vehicle crashes in Nebraska. Of those crashes, more than 14,000 (https://dot.nebraska.gov/media/115479/facts2020.pdf) people were injured as either the driver or the passenger. One crash occurred every 15 minutes with an average of 38 people getting injured in car accidents each day.

 

With car accidents alone, every accident could have a devastating result. Some of the most common physical injuries from motor vehicle accidents (https://www.jucm.com/assessing-patients-in-the-wake-of-motor-vehicle-accidents/) include: the face and head, brain, neck, shoulder and arm, back, and leg.  Coincidentally, all of these injuries can have long-term effects on your body. There is a statistical possibility that you may experience an injury that could take your career and financial stability.

What If You’re in a Car Accident?

Let’s say you get injured in a car accident: after developing a headache, it's determined you experienced a moderate traumatic brain injury. More than one million people experience a TBI every year, and 80,000 to 90,000 people experience the onset of long-term disability (https://www.cdc.gov/traumaticbraininjury/pubs/tbi_report_to_congress.html).

Disability Insurance After a Car Accident

One of the primary benefits of physician disability insurance is how it works if your injury results in a disability. If you become disabled, your physician disability insurance will provide monthly paychecks to replace your income. This wonderful benefit will ensure that you are protected financially.
