Social Security Disability Cases
If you have become disabled before you’re ready to retire, you may be eligible to qualify for benefits through the Social Security Disability Insurance program (SSDI). In order to determine if you are entitled to benefits through this program, you must prove that:
- you are not able to work the way you previously did;
- you are unable to adapt to new work due to medical conditions; or,
- your disability will, or is expected to, last for a year or more or result in death.
One of the main reasons people seek out legal help during social security disability claims is that the process can be complex, and it may take months to get accepted. If you file a claim and are initially turned down, the process may take up to another year to get completed. By hiring the services of Todd Sailer, you will be able to rest easy while he guides you through the process and acts as your advocate.
Workers Compensation Claims
For the workers of Pennsylvania, workers compensation covers most employees who are wondering how they will pay for medical bills or missed time. Some of the most common injuries from workers compensation claims include hurting your back from lifting a heavy object or a fall, respiratory problems or burns from the use of chemicals, and injuries from an auto accident.
While each case is unique, there may also be grounds to file a civil lawsuit if the injury is caused by the employer’s negligence for employees’ safety. In the case that the employee is successful in the lawsuit, he or she may be able to recover more money through the civil lawsuit as opposed to a workers compensation claim.
Regardless of what type of claim you will be filing against an employer, there are some important things to know when regarding workers compensation cases. Directly after any type of workplace accident, you should report it to a supervisor and have an incident report made up. In Pennsylvania, the law states that you must notify your supervisor within 120 days of the injury. If you fail to do this, it is possible your claim could be denied.

Some important information you should obtain following a dog bite accident is the name and phone number of the animal’s owner. If you cannot get this information, the contact information of a neighbor or a witness will help your claim.
