How one proves wrongful death after loved one's work fatality?

Losing a loved one tops the list in terms of a person's worst fears. Some unlucky family's fears are confirmed when they get word that their loved one was killed in a fatal accident. How can these things possibly happen? If the fatality happened at work, it could have more to it than a simple work accident - there could be negligence involved.

Which mental disorders are covered by the SSA?

A diagnosed medical condition gives a name to a variety of medical symptoms that one may experience on a daily basis. It can also help give a course of action in terms of a treatment plan. However, treating a mental illness is often not a cure. It simply helps one manage the symptoms.

Heavy financial implications for worker's family post-work death

Maybe you've heard the ever-so-often news articles where a worker suffers some event at work, and he or she dies unexpectedly. Maybe you or a loved one or a friend is living that headline. Beyond the emotional shock for a family of suddenly losing a family member, there are usually heavy financial implications for the worker's family. Some of these expenses are immediate in the short term and some of them stem from a loss of income.

Veterans can receive expedited processing of SSD claim

There are many benefits that are available to veterans and active military members. This is not by accident, as these benefits are well-deserved to those who risk their lives and sacrifice so much for our country. These benefits are not inclusive to benefits associated with Veterans Affairs. The truth is Social Security Disability, which is available to civilians and veterans alike, can provide further benefits for a veteran unable to work due to a physical disability or mental disability.

Returning to your job after a workers' compensation incident

A work accident can leave you physically injured and facing financial losses that you may not be able to manage on your own. Through a workers' compensation claim, you can secure benefits that will cover a portion of your lost wages and other financial needs you have. However, for many Ohio workers, they may not be able to return to the same job they had before their injury. 

Overview of construction accidents and injuries

Thousands work in the construction sector but not all know the risks or characteristics of the injury that they work in. Often, only after workplace injuries occur, does a worker and their family find out just how dangerous construction accidents and injuries can be. Statistically, construction workers face higher instances of nonfatal injury at work than does the average worker. This means that significant injuries can result and further consequences for the worker.

Common risks faced by manufacturing employees

Some Ohio workers face a higher risk of on-the-job injury because they work in inherently risky jobs. Working in a high-risk occupation, however, does not mean that you do not have the right to a reasonably safe workplace and the training necessary to stay as safe as possible. This is also true for those who work in the manufacturing industry.
