Because the Social Security Administration is working to prevent fraudulent disability claims, the claims process has become increasingly difficult. When legitimate claims are denied due to minor clerical errors, we are prepared to correct the oversight and obtain the benefits.
Social Security has four benefit programs: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Disabled Widows and Widowers Benefits (DWB), and Disabled Adult Children Benefits (DAC).
Depending on the state a person files, an initial Social Security claim is denied 60-70 percent of the time. People's claims often end up in a hearing, requiring the aid of a social security attorney.
Did you know that it is safer to drive in the right or middle lane as opposed to the far left lane on the freeway? Staying put in the middle or right lanes gives drivers more maneuverability options and can even help drivers to avoid near miss accidents on the road.
What do you do if you've been a victim of a hit and run accident? If you see the other car, try to record as quickly as possible the license number (or any numbers you can see) plus the make, model and color of the vehicle.
One way to help reduce vehicle accident risks is to be aware of your blind spots - this is especially important if you are driving a rented car, a new car or a borrowed car. Taking a few moments to assess the blind spot locations can make a big difference.
