People's tendency to get into accidents and suffer injuries
is as old as civilization itself, as is the fact that
sometimes the actions (or inactions) of others
are to blame. While no one can go back and undo an injury, personal injury law provides a way for the injured to be "made whole" again. Relief for injuries
usually comes in the form of monetary compensation, or "damages."
A good social security disability lawyer will develop your claim based upon your work history, age, impairments, and how you reached the point of being unable to work. They will also assist in obtaining the medical evidence necessary to support your claim. If your claim is rejected, your social security disability lawyer will help with the appeal.
We all work hard at our professions. But if we get injured on the job, will our job work hard for us? Workers' compensation provides the exclusive remedy in most states for employees who suffer on-the-job injuries. Most workers' compensation claims must follow strict procedural guidelines that can be confusing for the layperson to understand.
If a family member died because of someone else's negligence or misconduct consider hiring a wrongful death lawyer. A wrongful death claim can result from situations like: a car or airplane crash, exposure to hazardous conditions or substances, criminal behavior, or a supervised activity. A wrongful death lawyer can help you recover money and other damages for lost wages, emotional distress and loss of companionship.
Discrimination and harassment in the workplace can come in many forms. And although such misconduct can sometimes be overt, such as the use of racial slurs or denial of advancement opportunities, it can also be subtle or even concealed. Discrimination occurs when a member of a protected class (women and minorities, for example) is treated differently than his/her peers.
Although many individuals who are terminated from their job feel their termination was "wrongful," especially if it was done without cause, the legal definition of wrongful termination is quite specific. To be wrongfully terminated is to be fired for an illegal reason, which may involve the basis of his/her race, gender, ethnic background, religion, or disability.
