What should Missourians know about a Federal SSD lawsuit?

When a Missourian seeks Social Security disability benefits and their claim is denied, there are four levels of appeal that they can use to try and receive an approval. The last one is going to Federal district court. Once this attempt is exhausted, there are no more levels of appeal and the case is over. When an applicant is going through this last resort, there might be a sense of urgency. It is imperative to understand how to move forward with this level of the appeal and the time limits for doing so.

Can burn injury victims seek Social Security disability benefits?

Missourians who suffer burn injuries can face major physical, emotional and financial problems as a result. With scarring, the need for medical treatment including surgeries, an extended stay in the hospital and problems returning to work, obtaining Social Security disability benefits can be a lifesaver. However, people are frequently unaware of how the Social Security Administration goes about assessing cases of those who suffered burns. This is a key factor when being approved or denied for SSD benefits for injury with burns.

Your return to work after an accident at your place of employment

Injured Missouri employees understand the difficulty of navigating an accident in the workplace. From physical injuries to expensive medical bills, injured workers can face myriad complications regarding their physical recovery, financial support and eventual return to work.

Legal help with a divorce and premarital agreements

Some Missouri residents have significant assets that they would like to protect before they get married. Others seek to handle this after they have gotten married. This is where premarital and postnuptial agreements come in. Understanding how these agreements can affect the case if there is a divorce underway is one of the most contentious and worrisome issues in family law. Having legal assistance for these cases is a must.

What are key points about child custody in a military divorce?

Child custody is a contentious and difficult issue for many Missouri couples who have ended their relationship and parted ways. For those who have one or both former spouses serving in the military, it makes the situation more complicated. To navigate these issues and ensure that the parents get the amount of time they are entitled to with the child and that the child is properly cared for in a stable environment, it is important to understand various points about the entire process.

Communication impairments and Social Security Disability

Missourians who have suffered a brain injury or neurological disorder will often have problems communicating. That inability can have a profound effect on their ability or inability to work and can warrant Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. Understanding how the Social Security Administration (SSA) evaluates communication impairments is key when it is decided whether the issue meets the criteria for qualifying SSD benefits for an injury.
