The Social Security Administration doesn’t just provide retirement benefits; Social Security benefits can also help to replace a portion of lost income if you or a loved one becomes significantly disabled. If you are unable to work due to a serious medical condition, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.

The application process can be arduous and time-consuming, so it’s helpful to know if you meet the basic criteria before applying. While the SSA will examine a multitude of evidence when considering an application for disability benefits, there are two main factors that go into an applicant’s determination.

Coronavirus and Workers’ Compensation – Have you been exposed in the workplace?

When you hear the phrase “workers’ compensation”, you may think about slips, falls, and other bodily injuries. You may not realize that exposure to coronavirus in your workplace could meet the criteria for a workers’ compensation claim. Such a claim is referred to by the Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation as an occupational disease claim. If you are considered an essential employee, and are currently required to work, you may be considered at a greater risk than the general public. This is especially true for healthcare providers and first responders. Symptoms and effects of coronavirus range from mild to severe. More severe diagnoses related to contracting COVID-19 may qualify for a claim with the Bureau.

What You Should Know About Wrongful Death Survivors’ Damages

It is never easy when a loved one passes away. It can...

It is never easy when a loved one passes away. It can be especially painful when it wasn’t their time, but instead, their death was because of someone else’s negligence. Think of a drunk driver who kills a mother of three in a car accident, or a distracted driver who hits someone crossing the street and fatally injures them. If the drivers in these situations had acted responsibly, their victims would still be alive.

The deceased can’t go to court to seek justice from the driver who killed them. But their family can. In Ohio, surviving children, parents and spouses of someone killed by another party’s negligence have the right to compensation from a wrongful death lawsuit.
