Tireless Legal Advocacy on Behalf of the Injured
If you were injured at work, you don’t need to prove negligence to receive workers’ compensation benefits. All you need to show is that your injuries occurred while you were performing work duties. Filing a claim as soon as possible is important, as there is a 2-year statute of limitations for workers’ comp claims in Ohio.
If you were injured by someone else’s negligence, you will need evidence to prove the other party’s fault in a personal injury claim. Evidence may include witness statements, pictures or videos of the accident, medical records, police reports, and other documentation. Our Richwood personal injury lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation to build your case, and will help you file the claim in a timely manner.
What You Need to Know About Social Security Disability Laws
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are available to those who have suffered total disability. SSDI payments will not cover short-term or partial disability. There are several factors that may determine if you are eligible for SSDI benefits.
You may be eligible for SSDI benefits if you:
- Have been disabled for more than 1 year
- Have worked for at least 10 years in your lifetime
- Have worked for the last 5 years
- Have contributed to FICA taxes
If your medical or emotional conditions render you incapable of maintaining gainful employment, you may be able to receive SSDI benefits. Our Richwood Social Security disability attorneys will analyze your situation and determine what benefits you may be entitled to. We will help you file the claim and represent you tenaciously in the appeals process if your claim is denied.
