Avail options to minimize SSD denied claim appeal time

When Indiana residents are unable to continue working and make an earning for themselves due to a disability, they can apply to state agencies that are affiliated with the Social Security Administration. The unfortunate reality is that most first-time applicants are denied social security disability benefits-only about one-third of them are approved. The good news is that a denied claim is not the end of the story; it is possible to appeal a denied claim. In fact, most people who appeal a denied claim are successful.

How can I prove I have been injured by a defective product?

When a product is sold on the market, there is an assumption that it is safe and fit for ordinary use, which is the use for which it was intended. Other products are unavoidably unsafe, such as an electric knife, which would be useless if it was not sharp and, therefore, is accompanied by warnings about risks associated with the uses of that product. Despite this, thousands of people are injured throughout the year by dangerous or defective products and the question for those who are injured in Indiana may be, who do we hold accountable and how?

Why is time of the essence in filing a medical malpractice claim?

You have been injured by the negligence of another-either in a car accident or due to medical negligence by a medical professional. You're busy running to the hospital, dealing with the aftermath of the incident, recuperating. Even though you intend to file a case, you keep delaying for a number of reasons and then when you finally get around to it, you find out the case is time-barred. You have a right to file the case-after all you were injured at the hands of another. So, what does time-barred mean? It means the right to sue has potentially been lost forever because the case was not brought within a specific time.

Get help applying for SSD benefits

Indiana residents, similar to their counterparts across the country, work hard at their jobs and like to maintain their physical and financial independence. This is why many of them continue to work into old age-they don't want to become dependent on anyone else. But, sometimes, they become injured on the job or suffer an illness that affects their ability to work and they must rely on someone else for assistance. The federal government provides them with options in these instances by providing aid in the form of social security disability benefits.
