Protecting the rights of New Jersey pedestrian accident victims

At Lieberman, Ryan, Forrest & Voorhees, LLC, we represent individuals who have been injured in car accidents through no fault of their own. As such, we have seen virtually every kind of car accident scenario that exists. In our experience, pedestrian versus car accidents can be some of the worst in terms of the severity of injuries suffered by the pedestrian victims.

Any type of serious health condition can turn a person's world upside down, whether it is a mental illness or physical injury. It can become all but impossible to do things you used to do, and you may consider yourself to be disabled. However, your definition of disability may not be the same as the Social Security Administration's definition, and unfortunately it is the SSA's definition that matters when it comes to pursuing disability benefits.

The unvarnished truth about manicurists' toxic exposure at work

The New York Times just published a fascinating series about the work lives of manicurists and nail salon workers in New York City, the No. 1 U.S. metro area in terms of nail salons per capita.

Who reports it if you're getting both workers' comp and SSDI?

The unfortunate fact is that a lot of people get hurt at work, and sometimes they end up permanently disabled. As we've discussed before, people who suffer permanently disabling workplace injuries often qualify for both workers' compensation and Social Security disability benefits. It's perfectly legal -- and expected -- for people to apply for and receive both types of benefits; systems have been set up to account for it.
