Dealing with Hearings in Your Workers’ Compensation Case

Statistics show that there is one fear that leads the pack among Americans. Fear of flying? No. Spiders? No. Heights? No, not even that. The number one fear among American adults is the fear of public speaking. And, unfortunately, that fear can come into play with your workers compensation case. Luckily, our firm has a dedicated team of experienced workers’ compensation attorneys dedicated to getting you the benefits that you are entitled to.  Having an experienced workers compensation attorney in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area can be of immeasurable assistance in this area.

When employees are injured on the job, most assume that they will file a claim, receive their benefits, recover from the injury, and return to work. Sometimes, however, things do not always go according to plan, and a workers’ compensation claimant must hire an attorney to get the benefits to which they may already be rightfully entitled. Often, when a claim reaches that point, hearings will be involved to assess the case, and this is where that public speaking phobia can come in. Whether the injured employee simply has a fear of speaking in front of others or the victim does not speak English well, language difficulties can make it hard for an employee to provide the strong and convincing arguments that might be needed to obtain remuneration. That is why having a knowledgeable and articulate workers’ compensation attorney with you at your Miami or Fort Lauderdale benefits hearing can be one of the best things possible for your case.

Can I Receive Unemployment or Other Benefits While Applying for Social Security Disability?

I am often asked whether you can receive unemployment or other benefits if you are applying for Social Security Disability.  The quick answer is maybe.  Because the rules and regulations surrounding multiple benefits can become extremely convoluted and complex, and because each individual case is unique, it is best to consult with an experienced Social Security Disability attorney at the Law Offices of Jason G. Barnett.  We are a dedicated team of attorneys that is locally based here in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale area.  We are not a national law firm who will pawn you off to a paralegal.  We understand Social Security Disability laws and the ways in which it could interact with other state and federal programs, regulations, and laws.

The possible scenarios are, of course, endless, but it could be the case that having been injured on the job, you are receiving workers’ compensation benefits. However, if it has now been determined that you are permanently disabled, and you wish to file for Social Security disability, your attorney will be able to review your case to determine what compensation you may be entitled to and whether or not one needs to end before the other can legally begin. The same would hold true if you were receiving unemployment compensation or other forms of government subsidy at the time you applied for your Social Security disability benefits.

Social Security Disability attorney Jason G. Barnett has amassed over 20 years of experience in dealing with such cases.  Jason has the expertise necessary to analyze your case and determine the best course of action for you to take.  Get the help you need by calling the Law Offices of Jason G.
