Why are so many Social Security disability claims denied?

Why are so many Social Security disability claims denied.jpgMost attorneys agree: the process to receive Social Security disability insurance is usually lengthy and complicated. Social Security disability was established by the federal government as a way to provide financial assistance for people who can't work because of a permanent illness or injury. Congress approved the Social Security benefit program in 1935 for older Americans and added disability pay for the sick or injured in 1956.

Government Considers Relaxing Drug And Alcohol Testing Requirements For Truck Drivers

relaxdrugtest.jpgSharing the road with large trucks can be extremely dangerous, as I have written about in a number of previous blog posts. Fatigued truck drivers and those who drive under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol have been a leading cause of car accidents involving large semi-trucks and motorist fatalities. Luckily, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has in place numerous required safety regulations aimed at limiting unsafe truck driving practices. These rules include maximum driving hours that a truck driver may be on the road for without resting and strict drug/alcohol testing procedures.

Can I Recover Damages If I Wasn't Wearing A Helmet During My Accident?

nohelmet.jpgThere is no question that wearing a helmet on a motorcycle is extremely important. In the event of an accident, helmets can help prevent or alleviate brain and spinal cord injuries, as well as other damage to your neck and back. For this reason, Georgia has a mandatory helmet law for motorcyclists. This means that any person, no matter how old they are, who operates or rides on a motorcycle must wear a helmet.

Even Minimum Impact Car Accidents Can Be Extraordinarily Dangerous

However, even if you're in a low-impact "fender bender," you may be more injured than you think.

avoidaccident.jpgEveryone knows that car accidents stink!  Not only can collisions cause damage to your vehicle and personal injury, even a relatively minor fender bender can ruin your day. While inclement weather plays a major role in many car crashes, you may be surprised to know that the majority of accidents are caused by poor driving and inattentive drivers. Before you and your loved ones get behind the wheel, here are some easy tips to remember that can help you prevent a car accident this fall.

Proving Your Case: The Most Important Types Of Evidence To Have In Your Car Accident Case

evidenceinaccident.jpgIf you have been injured in a car accident due to the negligence of another driver, placing blame on the other person probably seems like a no-brainer. After all, you were at the scene of the accident and experienced what happened directly. For courts, however, determining who is liable in a car accident is more complicated. You must have hard evidence to support your claim before a judge or jury will rule in your favor.
