Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

As soon as your doctor or your employer tells you that you are too sick to work apply immediately for Social Security disability and/or Supplemental Security Income. If your claim is denied, (and most claims are denied upon application) contact me immediately. Do not lose benefits by waiting too long to appeal an unfavorable notice.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

You may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This is often an option for individuals who are poor and who have not worked enough to build and history to qualify for Social Security disability (SSDI).

Social Security Disabled Widows' (DWI) Claims

You may be eligible for Disabled Widows' benefits (DWI) if your spouse has died, you had been married 10 years or more, you are not remarried, and if a DWI benefit would bring you more than an SSDI benefit.

Social Security Disabled Adult Child (DAC) Claims

You may be eligible for Disabled Adult Child (DAC) benefits on the earnings history of a deceased parent, if you became disabled before age 22 and if a DAC benefit would bring you more than an SSDI benefit.

Personal Injury - Motor Vehicle Accidents

This is one of the most common instances of personal injury. When you have been hurt, get medical attention right away and tell the doctor exactly what happened. Good injury claims are often devalued because the injured person did not seek medical attention promptly or explain clearly how the injury occurred. Get pictures of the damaged vehicles and accident scene. Contact me right away.

Personal Injury - Unsafe Premises - Slip and Fall

This is a common instance of personal injury that occurs on property owned by someone else. When you have been hurt, get medical attention right away and tell the doctor exactly what happened. Get pictures of the scene of injury. Contact me right away.

Workers' Compensation

As soon as you know you have been hurt, tell your employer exactly what happened and ask to file a claim. Many winnable claims are lost because an injured worker was reluctant to give the employer clear and timely notice of injury. Get medical help right away and tell the doctor exactly what happened. Many claims are lost because an injured worker was reluctant to get medical help and tell the doctor exactly what happened. If your claim is denied, if your claim has been closed, or if the workers' comp insurance company is trying to “settle” your claim, or “buy out” your rights, contact me right away.

Third-Party Claims

This is an area of personal injury that co-exists with a workers' compensation injury. It occurs when a worker is injured at work but while under the direction of someone other than his/her immediate employer. In these instances, you may be eligible for both workers compensation and a personal injury recovery against the party who was directing your work. As soon as you know you have been injured by a third-party, contact me right away.
