Preparation needed for disability hearings


Filing for Social Security disability benefits can seem daunting. Gathering evidence and crafting legal arguments can be challenging and tiring, especially for those who are unfamiliar with the system. Yet, despite all their hard work, many individuals who seek SSD benefits find their initial claim denied. As disheartening as that may be, these individuals should not be deterred from pursuing the matter further, as these denials can be appealed. The first step of the process is known as reconsideration, which is where the evidence presented at the initial hearing is reevaluated.

Parkinsonian syndrome sufferers may qualify for SSD benefits


Mental health has been gaining attention in the public forum, but it still isn't receiving the attention it deserves. Many Americans suffer from a variety of mental health conditions that affect their daily lives. Sometimes these illnesses can be effectively treated with therapy and medication, but in other instances, the condition is simply too sever to allow a sufferer to live a normal life. Those who fall in the latter group can see every aspect of their life altered, including being rendered unable to work. While that may sound like the least of their concerns, the truth of the matter is that those who are unable to work and thereby earn a wage may struggle to make ends meet. This can include maintaining housing, putting food on the table and even obtaining medical treatment.

Workplace deaths continue to increase


As previously discussed on this blog, accidents in the workplace can and do occur in every profession. Oftentimes, these incidences occur more frequently than we are aware. One would think that this fact would give way to increased safety measures and, in turn, more safe workplaces. However, a study recently released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics paints a grim portrait of America's workplace safety.
