There are two kinds of Waukegan disability attorneys whose services you may find yourself in need of. The first is a social security disability attorney. The second is a lawyer that specializes in all kinds of disabilities that could result from being injured because of a job-related accident or job related to repeated stress or repetitive activities.
If you have become disabled, you may qualify for social security disability benefits that can provide a monthly income and possibly medical benefits. One of the unfortunate realities is that Social Security almost routinely turns down the first applications for disability benefits. Waukegan disability attorneys have a lot of experience in dealing with getting their clients the disability claims correctly filed and successfully fighting with social security to overcome disallowed claims.
In some cases there may be a temporary disability caused from some kind of accident at work and these Waukegan disability attorneys will make sure that workman’s compensation claims are filed in a timely fashion so that you can get paid as quickly as possible to enable you to pay your living expenses while you can’t work.
Some kinds of work can cause “repeated stress” injuries or disabilities that you can get paid for. These payments could be in the form of a lump-sum payment together with getting medical expenses directly related to these injuries or disabilities. A repeated stress injury could be severe back pain, migraine headaches, or hearing loss due to working in very loud areas for a long time.
There are entire law firms that have Waukegan disability attorneys with a great deal of knowledge and experience dealing in both of these areas. They will often give you a free consultation to discuss the merits of your potential claim. They will inform you of what your rights are under the law and may even take your case on a contingency basis. A contingency-based representation means that the Waukegan disability attorneys don’t receive any money until and unless they win your case, then they get a percentage of your settlement.
