We have the experience and knowledge to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Being injured in a serious accident can open the door for disability claims. Whether you’re hurt on the job, at home, or on vacation, if you can no longer perform your job the way you once did due to an injury, you’ll need a lawyer to guide you through.
Disability claims can be put into two categories: long-term and short-term.
Qualifying for short-term disability claims means you will need to supply evidence of your mental, physical, or psychological injuries and that they have inhibited you from performing your job at the same level as before you were injured.
For long-term disability claims, you will still need to provide evidence of your injuries. The difference is these injuries have to affect your life for at least two years. These injuries often come with permanent damage such as the loss of a limb, spinal trauma, cancer, stroke, heart attack, paralysis, or psychological disorders.
In each case, experts will have to verify your disability claims. Sadly, companies want to protect their best interests and often have settlement systems in place that offer to pay much less than what you may actually need to go on with your life. Also, your compensation may be impacted by workers’ compensation, termination pay or severance pay as well as any number of additional government disability programs.
