Helping throughout the SSD application process

For many Florida residents, planning for the future means saving money for a trip or retirement, or drafting an estate plan to handle their assets after their passing. It is easy to plan for the likely events in life. However, it is challenging to prepare for events that we never expect. No one imagines to be injured or suffer a serious illness, resulting in a disability. Nonetheless, this unfortunate event happens to many American each year.

What is the cost to speak with a lawyer?

Whether you are exploring a personal injury lawsuit or are considering enlisting legal help for the workers' compensation or Social Security disability process, you could be wondering what the cost of speaking with a lawyer is. Moreover, what responsibilities do you have after speaking with the lawyer? For example, are you obligated to hire that person and not meet with others?

When driving a truck, small mistakes can have major consequences

Every driver has made a mistake behind the wheel, whether it is accidently running through a stop sign or driving too fast on the interstate. Oftentimes, these mistakes result in little more than a scare or moment of panic. However, there are times when even a small mistake has catastrophic consequences.

Study finds a link between TBIs and risk for dementia

No one expects to suffer a head injury in any type of accident. This is especially true in a workplace accident.

Whether it is due to a fall, slip or mechanical incident, workers could suffer tremendously when a brain injury ensues.

Risk of fatal accidents expected to increase this weekend

While it can seem like harmless fun to celebrate Saint Patrick, the fact is that all this celebration has the potential to lead to catastrophic accidents when people drive after drinking.

What is the loss of consortium?

While we may drive by them on the side of the road and hear about them on the news, no one ever expects to be involved in a car crash. Whether it is minor or major, a car accident could be the source of the most severe injuries a person could suffer. And much like a person never dreams of being involved in an automobile collision, they are not prepared for how the injuries they suffered in the wreck will impact them personally as well as their loved ones.

Controversial tool could make Florida roads safer

Despite the risks and rules that should discourage texting behind the wheel, many motorists continue to engage in this dangerous behavior. Oftentimes, they think it's not a big deal to look at their phone for a few seconds, or they believe they can safely divide their attention between their phones and the road. It is only in the event of a serious accident that these drivers learn they are wrong.

Top mistakes to avoid when filing for workers' compensation

If you get injured at work or develop a work-related health condition, you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits. Many Florida workers rely on these benefits to receive medical care and continue meeting living expenses while healing from their injuries.

What are Compassionate Allowances?

Millions of people in the United States are waiting for the Social Security Administration to make a decision on whether they qualify for disability benefits. In many of these cases, the decision hinges on whether the SSA considers the applicant's condition disabling or not.
