Data from the National Council on Aging (NCA) shows that approximately one out of every ten people over the age of 60 will experience some form of elder abuse each year. This is a shocking statistic. There are various types of elder abuse that can occur, including the following:
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Emotional and psychological abuse
- Financial abuse
- Neglect of basic necessities
Unfortunately, the team at JML Law knows that there are many perpetrators of this kind of abuse, including familial caregivers, paid caregivers, scam artists, nursing home employees, and more.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there were 2.8 million workplace injuries or illnesses reported in the country during the latest reporting year. Any worker, in any industry, is susceptible to sustaining an on-the-job injury. When this happens, injured workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits in the state of California. Regardless of who causes a workplace injury, an injured worker should receive benefits. At JML Law, we are here to help if your workers’ compensation claim is denied by your employer or insurer.
Social Security Disability Benefits
If a person sustains an injury or illness so severe that they are unable to continue working during their lifetime, they may be able to obtain Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). In order to be eligible for these benefits, a person will have to demonstrate that they have been disabled for 12 months or that they expect to be disabled for that period of time. There are various types of injuries and conditions that can keep a person from working. Our attorneys regularly help clients obtain SSDI and SSD benefits after they have sustained the following:
- Herniated discs
- Various back and neck injuries
- Orthopedic injuries such as broken or dislocated bones
- Heart disease
- Lung diseases
- Liver failure
- Kidney disease
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Complications from diabetes
- Arthritis and inflammatory diseases
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Anxiety disorder and panic attacks
- Depression or manic depressive disorder (bipolar)
The success rate for initial applications for SSDI and SSD benefits is low, but your chances are greatly improved when you work with a skilled attorney with experience handling these applications.
Do Not Hesitate – Act Today To Beat Deadlines
We do not like to try to make this seem like we are pushing you towards filing a claim, but the reality is that we need to be aware of deadlines. In general, injury victims have to file their claims within a limited amount of time in this state. The California personal injury statute of limitations is two years from the date an injury occurs. This means that injury victims have a two-year window with which to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent party in their case.
If an injury victim fails to file a claim within this time frame, they will likely lose the ability to recover any compensation at all for their losses, regardless of how severe the injuries are or how clear the fault of the other party is. Please do not hesitate with your claim. When you contact the injury lawyers at JML Law, we will be able to quickly analyze the facts of your case and determine how soon we need to act.
TYPE OF COMPENSATION AVAILABLE TO YOU
If you have been injured due to the careless or negligent actions of someone else, you may be entitled to various types of compensation for your losses. This can include the recovery of economic and non-economic damages, such as the following:
- Coverage of all medical bills
- Lost wages if you cannot work
- General household out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering damages
- Loss of enjoyment of life damages
- Possible punitive damages against a grossly negligent party
Without thoroughly examining the facts related to your particular injury situation, we cannot give you an estimate of how much your claim may be worth. It is crucial for an attorney to examine the case and work with trusted medical and economic experts when properly calculating compensation amounts.
Do Not Worry About Attorney Fees
One of the main concerns that people have when determining whether or not they will work with an attorney is finances. At JML Law, we take personal injury cases in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas on a contingency fee basis. This means that our attorneys will take no upfront or out-of-pocket costs from the clients while their case is ongoing. We will only collect legal fees after we secure the compensation our clients deserve. If we do not win, our clients do not pay. This type of fee arrangement helps ensure that every person has access to adequate legal assistance when standing up to at-fault parties and aggressive insurance carriers.
At JML Law, we are here to help injury victims recover the compensation they deserve. We have the resources necessary to investigate your claim and secure maximum compensation. You can contact us for a free consultation of your case by clicking here or calling us at 818-610-8800.
