Pursuing damages for a loved one subjected to nursing home abuse

When you placed your loved one in a nursing home in Ohio, it is likely with the expectation and assumption that he or she would be safe and receive adequate care. It can be disheartening and overwhelming to learn that your family member did not receive proper care and actually suffered various types of abuse.

Protecting your rights in the pursuit of workers' compensation

For those working in Ohio, holding down a job is important. It is not only a person's source to pay for their needs, but it is also their ability to save up for retirement. Thus, when obstacles occur, impacting a person's income and ability to pay for their needs and save for the future, this can cause individuals to seek out assistance. For those injured in a workplace accident, it may be possible to apply for workers' compensation benefits.

Understanding roadside construction workers accidents

Now that warm weather is here in Ohio, it not only means that more people will be outside enjoying it, but also that road construction season is here. Interstates, highways and residential areas will undergo construction to repair or even widen roads. In some cases, major projects might begin, causing some major roadways to go down to a single lane. Just like road construction is necessary, safety among those working on the roads is also important. Motor vehicles are constantly traveling by these workers, putting them at risk of being involved in a serious or even fatal construction site accident.

What could impact your continuing eligibility for SSD benefits?

For those living with disabilities in Ohio, it can be challenging to get by. Because of this, certain programs have been designed to help individuals who are unable to work because of a disability. The goal of these programs is to help individuals meet their basic needs while they are living with a disability that prevents them from working temporarily or permanently. Receiving these benefits is very valuable and necessary. Therefore, when these benefits suddenly stop, recipients are likely to endure hardships.

Tips for applying for SSD benefits

It is difficult to imagine a time when it could be challenging to do daily tasks. Whether that means taking care of yourself, enjoying leisure activities and even holding down a job, one does not know what it means to be incapable of doing these things until it happens to them. Suffering from a disabling injury or illness is a shocking event. It not only causes pain and suffering, it also causes the need to seek medical treatment, make accommodations and even endure financial hardships.
