  • Published: November 27, 2020

When it comes to on-the-job injuries, you, your employer, and your employer’s insurance company are not on the same side. While it is just business and nothing personal, it is important to understand where everyone involved in the worker’s compensation claim stands. Underestimating your opposition can be one of the biggest mistakes made in workers’ compensation claims.

The Reality Of Workers’ Compensation Claims Sadly, the wishful thinking stated above is not always how things go in workers’ comp claims.

  • Published: November 25, 2020

Have you recently applied for SSD benefits? If you were approved for Social Security Disability benefits, you might think you have backpay and retroactive benefits on the way. What you may not be aware of, however, is that past due payments sometimes make you eligible for two separate forms.

Retroactive Benefits – What Are They? You may be entitled to retroactive benefits even if you are receiving backpay. Retroactive benefits apply between the time at which you were first disabled all the way through to your benefits application.

  • Published: November 4, 2020

Workers’ compensation cases can be in-depth, complicated, and sometimes challenging.

  • Published: October 26, 2020

Can You Receive Workers’ Compensation If You Resign? People may quit their jobs for any number of reasons, but a pending workers’ compensation claim can complicate things.
