SSDI forms an important part of the safety net

With Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), most of the media commentary is critical, complaining that the program has grown in size and expense and alleging that there is much fraud and abuse. But rarely do the critics manage to provide any clear evidence of this fraud. At most, they point to a few anecdotal cases. Of course, with more than 11 million beneficiaries, it is always easy to cherry pick a few obvious cases.

Construction zone speed limits questioned in Ohio

In Ohio, you see construction all over the roadways. It's not uncommon, and normally speed limits are reduced in those areas. Now, some people are arguing that construction zone speed limits could save lives if they were reduced even further.

Worker in Ohio killed by auger

In Versailles, Ohio, a worker was recently killed in an accident. The fatal workplace accident took place at a company called Codino's Limited Inc., and it happened in the afternoon on Tuesday, May 20. One of the officials who was asked said that he had never seen this type of accident, resulting in a death, in the past.

A fast track for your SSDI application

If you have suffered a disabling injury or illness and can no longer work, you know how important it is to obtain help. You need medical assistance to help with your medical condition, and because you cannot work, you also need financial assistance. You may even be aware of programs such as the Social Security Administration's (SSA) disability insurance program.

Workers' Memorial Day sets a reminder of the dangers of working

Living in Ohio, it might be easy to forget about those who have suffered at their jobs from accidents that injured them or took their lives. There are many people in Ohio who work dangerous jobs, and a wrongful death isn't unheard of when it comes to unsafe workplaces. Workers' Memorial Day was created to remember those who have died on the job, and it also honors those who have been injured while at work.

Brain injuries on the field can lead to workers' compensation

As a parent, the news that concussion rates have doubled for high school athletes may concern you, just like it would concern you if you were a pro sports player who had to worry about brain injurys and workers' compensation. A brain injury like a concussion has to be taken very seriously, and it can lead to problems later in life. If your child has suffered from a brain trauma due to poor equipment or if you as a coach or player have suffered during practice or a game, it's important to seek the compensation you deserve.

Don't get lost in the SSA alphabet

For many of our Ohio clients, the Social Security Administration's (SSA) programs can certainly feel like the typical government alphabet soup of confusing acronyms. The SSA administers three programs, Old-Age and Survivors Insurance (OASI), Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Each of these programs offers Americans a valuable financial benefit, but they are different and have their own rules and eligibility requirements.

45 percent of homeless have experienced a brain injury

Brain injuries can happen in a flash, and the causes are just as varied as the effects. Auto accidents, sports, slip-and-falls and various other types of accidents can cause a traumatic brain injury. A researcher from Toronto's St. Michael's Hospital recently completed a study about traumatic brain injurys and the effects of such injuries on homeless men.
