disabled worker applying for social securityIt doesn’t matter if it’s a serious injury or illness, a debilitating condition can make it so that anyone is unable to return to work which in turn eliminates their steady income. The average American doesn’t carry short or long-term disability insurance and even if their injury or illness was caused by their job, workers’ compensation payments only go so far.

Social Security was created not just to help the elderly who have retired but also to help those who can no longer work. That being said, obtaining the benefits is one of the most difficult things for any worker to do. On average, nearly 65% of all claims filed each year are denied outright. To make matters worse, the hearing for appeals are so numerous that there is a backlog nearly two years long – meaning that applicants need to wait two years just to have a hearing to review the denial.

The attorneys at Markhoff & Mittman completely understand how stressful this process and time can be. When a client workers with us, they can be sure that we will do everything we can to ensure that their initial claim will be accepted or, if a claim has already been denied, prepare the case for the hearing so that payments can begin as quickly as possible.

Construction workers are employed in one of the most dangerous jobs in the world and there are literally hundreds of things which could either cause them serious harm or kill them. Although OSHA and the Department of Buildings has set thousands of safety standards which are designed to keep construction workers safe, accidents still happen daily.

When an injury occurs on a job site, the company owner is supposed to provide the injured employee with workers’ compensation, however, even when these claims are approved, the amount paid out doesn’t often cover the full losses sustained by the employee. But what most don’t realize is that they may also be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit.

These lawsuits are filed against the a third-party whose negligence caused the accident which resulted in an injury. The compensation obtained through a lawsuit can cover all losses, including physical pain, emotional trauma, lost wages, and medical expenses. This includes future losses as well as past.  There are time limits on this type of complaint so it’s important to contact our law firm as soon as possible
