Wokers compensation workplace injuries

Americans have long been able to count on the protection of Social Security if they become permanently disabled, but when you find yourself in the position of actually needing those benefits because of your injury or illness, you'll find it difficult to be able to actually access that protection. You need a skilled New Hampshire personal injury lawyer who knows how to work with the Social Security rules and procedures to help you get the benefits you deserve.

A lawyer will be able to identify the issues crucial to proving your case, and gather the evidence necessary to establishing your eligibility for benefits. You'll need to prove that you were injured, through no fault of your own, and that your injury is so severe and lasting that it prevents you from supporting yourself. This proof can only come from the opinion of medical professionals, and we can help you find the best experts who will understand your case and write persuasive and thorough reports. You may need to undergo additional medical examinations and answer detailed questions about your condition, but a skilled lawyer will help you know how to respond and make sure that you complete each requirement successfully.

In addition to medical evidence, you will probably also need to obtain evidence more specifically regarding your employment prospects. This could mean evaluations by occupational therapists, physical therapists, vocational counselors, and other rehabilitation specialists. Our New Hampshire Attorneys will help you find professionals that are qualified to persuasively help your case and convenient for you to access if your ability to travel is limited. If your injury stemmed from an instance of negligence, recklessness, or malice by another, he can also help you gather documentation regarding those circumstances and help you decide if you might even have a valid claim against the person or people who caused your injury.

It takes a fairly sophisticated level of experience just to know how to navigate the process of qualifying for benefits—which forms to file, deadlines and other detailed requirements, where to find needed personnel. An experienced lawyer will have handled cases similar to yours before, and will know not only how to handle the qualification process, but what to do if things go awry.

Sometimes, despite a well-prepared and well-argued case, your request for Social Security benefits may be denied. It can be difficult to predict how the board will decide your case, and sometimes they get it wrong. If that happens, you might be able to take additional action. It's possible that Daniel can file a suit on your behalf challenging the decision and asking for a court to reconsider the evidence that you presented. This kind of action can be complex, but is often worth the effort. You'll need to be sure that your lawyer is familiar with all of the legal issues and regulations that come into play in such cases, and can help you make the best decision that maximizes your chances for success in receiving the compensation you deserve.
