As a Cincinnati attorney with a focus on car accidents workers comp and social security disability claims I am often asked what does it take to win a Social security disability case. I can tell you by an example.
Recently I represented a veteran who had a serious back injury. The first 100 pages of the record were gathered by social security . Critical evidence was missing. I set to work tracking down hudreds of pages of Veterans administration and private medical provider records . Key evidence of inability to stand or sit for extended periods as well as objective medical evidence of a medical condition reasonably expected to cause pain was added to the record by me.
So don’t expect Social security to get the critical evidence necessary. In fact they do not add much if any evidence once your case goes to the judge. Expect the social security disability lawyer you hire to get the critical evidence that is avaialable.
You must do your part by getting to the doctor so the evuidence can be generated .
http://www.social-security-lawyers.net/ Here is a directory of Nationwide social security lawyers. Be sure to hire one that is local to your area. There are large national firms that you can hire but you may not even meet the attorney until the hearing. To me that’s a poor way to help yourself win.
I welcome your call and only charge a fee if I win you back benefits. Call 1-800-447-6549 I’m happy to personally speak with you.

Everyone has seen local and national attorneys advertise on television. In fact there are often 2- 3 different lawyers that advertise on the same show. How would you go about choosing which of these attorneys is rigtht for your car accident case, your workers compensation case or your social security disability case. I’m sure I’ve left an area of the law out because just about every area gets covered.
It’s really very difficult to detemine in a thirty second commercial if the attorney is any good at all at accident injury law. Usually they shout to get your attention and tell you what? They use words like aggressive , experienced, lawyers you can trust. I love it when someone says let me be perfectly frank. That implies that most of the time they are not frank. And I put my hands on my wallet when someone says you can trust me.
What you really need to know takes a little bit of time to find out. But its not that difficult, especially with web sites. You want to know : What settlements and verdicts have they obtained. How often have they handled a case similar to yours. Are they AV rated by Martindale Hubbel, a peer review rating system and the highest rating possible. What do former clients say about them. Are there testimonials on their web site. Are they able and willing to advance the costs of litigation. Will they be the attorney to handle your case or will you be pawned off on a junior associate. Do they provide educational materials on their web site. Do they have educational videos so you can get a sense whether they are a passionate advocate or a boring drone.
SoI submit maybe that TV attorney is a good one , but a 30 second commercial won’t give you much help.

Cincinnati car accident attorney explains questions to ask you car accident attorney before hiring them.
If you have been seriously injured in a car accident it would be wise to consult with if not hire a car accident injury attorney. There are actual insurance company statistics that show that in many cases you will end up with more money in your pocket even after paying the attorney fee. Why is this? If you don’t have an experienced car accident attorney that has gone to trial you are stuck taking what the insurance company offers you. You really have know recourse. But if you hire a car accident trial lawyer they can sue and if necessary take your case to a jury to get an award of fair compensation .
Here are 8 questions to ask your car accident attorney before you hire them.
1. Have you handled car accident injury jury trials . How many?
2. What has your experince been with car accident injury cases. How many have you handled?
3. Do you advance the costs of litigation?
4. Do you hold a preemminent rating from your peers through Martindale Hubbell?
5. Can you show me testimonials from your clients?
6.Will you be the only car accident injury attorney to handle my case or will a junior associate be involved?
7. Do you have an experienced Registered Nurse case manager to compile and review my medical records and bills.
8. What experts have you hired in the past?
I would be glad to answer any questions you have as to why a yes answer to these questions is critical. And what my own answers would be. I invite you to call me today to get your questions answered . 1-800-447-6549

If you have been hurt on the job by a third party you may be able to bring claims for workers compensation and a claim against the person that hurt you . If you are so ill or injured that you can not work for one year you may have a social security claim. Here are 5 good reasons to find one lawyer that can handle all three claims.
1. A separate car accident lawyer, a workers compensation lawyer and a disability attorney all have experience in a compartmentalized area of the law. Hiring an attorney that handles all of these case will help you coordinatebenefits.
2. One attorney knows all the information evidence being created in each case and can manage the eveidence more effectively so it does not impact negatively on the other cases. They can use positive evidenc in one case to help the other cases.
3. All of these area of law have interrelated pitfalls. An attorney experienced in these area can avoid these pitfalls. For instance workers compensation is going to want their money back from your car accident case. your attorney must know the formula and how to negotiate with the bureau of workers compensation.
4. You only have to deal with one attorney to answer your question and work with you on all three cases saving you time
5. By coordinating all of the benefits one attorney should be able to maximize all the benefits you are entitled to from your injury accident accident, your workers compensation case and your social security disability claim.
