Our firm has been in practice for more than 50 years, while our attorneys have 80 years of combined experience in the following practice areas:
- Workers’ Compensation: If you are injured at work, your employer will compensate your injuries and loss of work through workers’ compensation benefits. Time is the key factor in receiving compensation if you are injured on the job. If you are denied benefits or health care for a workplace injury, call us immediately.
- Intentional Tort Liability: If your injury was caused intentionally by someone else, you may be entitled to receive compensation from the responsible party. Many personal injuries result from intentional torts which may cause long-term disability. If you have a long-term or permanent disability, you may qualify for other government funded programs.
- Social Security Disability (SSDI): As with a Social Security Retirement benefit, the amount of the Social Security disability benefit payable depends on the worker's age and record of covered earnings. If your disability benefits are denied, or have been suspended, our social security disability attorneys can help you file the necessary claims to receive further compensation.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI): In addition to Social Security, some disabled citizens are entitled to receive Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, if they cannot work and have no other income, such as permanently disabled individuals or long-term cancer patients. If you meet these conditions, you are entitled to a monthly stipend to help pay your living costs.
- Public Employees Retirement System: All employees who are paid in whole or in part by the state of Ohio, a county, municipality, or any other political subdivision of state or local government in Ohio are members of the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System, OPERS, unless they are covered by another state retirement system in Ohio, or by the Cincinnati Retirement System. Membership begins from the first date of employment. If you are being denied health care benefits and have worked for a government agency in Ohio, contact us immediately to determine your compensation.
- Long Term Disability: Some employers offer Long Term Disability to their employees. Some individuals purchase their own Long Term Disability Insurance. Typically, a Long Term Disability policy is administered by a private Insurance Company, and an individual can file for these benefits if he or she has medical impairments that affect his/her ability to work. Normally, Long Term Disability benefits are payable for 24 months if there s medical proof that an individual is unable to perform their "own occupation". After 24 months the definition usually changes to "any occupation". If you apply for Long Term Disability benefits and are denied, we can assist you with an appeal.
- Medical Malpractice: Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, dentist or other medical/healthcare worker performs his or her duties in a manner that is negligent. This means, the worker's action or non-action does not meet the industry standard of care and, as a result, the patient suffers injury.
- Product Liability: The portion of American law which deals with the responsibility of a manufacturer or seller of merchandise, to the buyer and other persons affected by the merchandise, concerning the quality of the merchandise and the consequences resulting from a lack of quality in the merchandise.
