|WE HANDLE ALL ACCIDENTS
If you’ve been injured as a result of negligence then you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of services, out of pocket expenses, etc… For more than twenty years, we’ve helped tens of thousands of clients with their accident claims and have recovered tens of millions of dollars in the process. Let’s face it, there really is no such thing as being compensated for an injury but there are issues of accountability for that rear end collision, broken sidewalk or unleashed vicious dog!
Negligence is the failure to exercise reasonable care and when negligence causes you to be injured then you should know your rights. Some injuries are minor such as sprains, whiplash, etc.., but others may result in casting, sutures, surgery, significant time out of work or even death. We do not discriminate between the smaller and larger valued cases but make the same promise to fight like hell to recover top dollar in every situation!
|SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY
If you cannot work because of a medical or emotional disability that will last for more than a year or result in death then you may be entitled to social security disability.
Social Security administers four separate benefit programs for individuals with disabilities: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income, Disabled Widows and Widowers benefits (DWB), and Disabled Adult Child Benefits (DAC). The medical requirements to prove disability, as well as the process for making disability determinations, are the same for each program.
Many people confuse the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs. The differences between them are as follows:
SSDI pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are "insured" (you have worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes, which fund this program). A person who is eligible to receive SSDI will automatically be enrolled in Medicare after receiving 24 months of benefits.
SSI pays you benefits based on financial need, whether or not you have ever worked. SSI is a Federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues (not Social Security taxes). A person who is eligible to receive SSI automatically qualified for Medicare (without a waiting period).
|WORKER’S COMP CLAIMS
Many people who are injured while in the course of their employment mistakenly believe they are only entitled to worker’s compensation benefits and forfeit the possibility of a big pay day. While it’s true that you are generally not allowed to sue your employer or fellow employees for negligence that causes your injuries while working, there may be a “third party,” or another party responsible for causing your injuries. We have recovered millions of dollars in third party claims for our worker’s compensation clients over the years.
Want an example? Let’s say you work in an office and Staples delivered a box of copy paper. You turned the corner and tripped over that box and broken your hand. You can’t sue your employer or fellow employees, but can bring a third party claim against Staples! Also, if you are a laborer on a construction job site and sustain injuries, the laws provide claims against the General Contractor in many situations.
