WORKERS' COMPENSATION

If you were injured in a workplace accident, turn to Dischell Bartle Dooley. Our personal injury lawyers have been helping injured workers since 1976. Our personal injury and workers compensation attorneys can handle any and all liability claims from construction and industrial accidents, ERISA claims, Jones Act claims for maritime workers, slip-and-fall injuries, repetitive stress injuries, exposure to toxic or harmful material, and vehicle accidents. Whether you’re filing a workers compensation claim, had your initial claim denied, or are filing a lawsuit against your employer under ERISA, we can help. 


SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY

Social Security disability benefits are paid to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. The Social Security Administration has strict criteria for determining who is disabled and subsequent eligibility for these benefits. The vast majority of initial applicants are denied and required to seek an appeal before an Administrative Law Judge. The process is complicated and your disability claim is best presented by having legal representation from the onset of your claim.
