My daughter is two and was deemed disabled by the ss administration. She receives monthly supplemental security benefits. My husband is the only one in the home with income. They consider his income for deeming her amoint. She receives maximum ben...
The short answer is yes. How much gets counted is a slightly different story. Social Security will count what is income to your husband and your family as that determines what your daughter's benefits are based upon. So the amount less attorney fees (if he had one) and if any portion of the settlement is labeled for medicals could adjust the amount social security uses for the offset of her benefits. If he has not gotten the funds already he needs to speak to his attorney and address these issues in his settlement paperwork.See question

The quick answer is to contact an attorney who practices workers compensation. You need to know your rights and possible remedies. Until your doctor releases you to return to work with or without restrictions, the value of your claim can be determined as well as pther claims and benefits to which you may be entitled.See question

You should discuss your options with an attorney. Here in Mississippi there is an issue of choice of physician. If this doctor is your choice, you will likely have to stick with him and I suggest either way that you speak to your doctor and discuss their plan of action on your injury. If you are not satisfied with that care, then I would advise you to seek counsel and see if you can change providers.See question
Car accident, hit in rear. totaled my van. I was passenger in van . other than my dog, I was the only one hurt. Accident determined not our fault.
Claims are valued on several steps, medical costs, type of injury and length of time to recovery. There is no easy way to place a daily value on pain and suffering. Each injury and case has its own value. What were you injuries and limitations on your life while you recovered from them are things that determine this value. I suggest you contact an attorney who has experience in this area who can help you obtain the value you are looking to recover.See question

The short answer is that want you to go away. To get the playing field level you need to speak to an attorney. An incident report is only part of the story. Gone are the days where you provide a report and the other side does the right thing. You have rights and pending statute of limitations and as such you need to seek the advice of an attorneySee question

The impairment rating is for your doctor to decide. It will be based on your recovery and the use of your arm and the nature of any residual symptoms you have. Once you have your impairment rating, the carrier will be looking to wrap things up. I suggest you contact an attorney to discuss the outcome and effect any rating and restrictions have toward you and the value of your claim.See question

I agree with other posts. In MS, you should not quite your job, while you may still be entitled to a lump sum compensation award upon completion of treatment. There are several factors which determine what you are entitled to. Those being, final impairment, restrictions and ability to return to work. Quitting your job, will put those items in questions and give the employer a great defense that you suffer no loss as they will maintain that you could continue to work at your current position. I suggest you contact an attorney as quickly as possible to discuss your rights.See question

The lady that rear ended my son won't answer questions to her insurance company so we can get my car fixed. how long do wait until I go to a lawyer?
Your questions is not as easy as it seems. If it is property damage only, then I would state notify your own carrier and if you have the proper coverage (i.e. collision then allow your own carrier to cover the vehicle and have them go after the defendant) If you son was injured then you need to contact a local injury attorney promptly.See question
