Your employer is required to maintain Workers’ Compensation insurance. If you have been injured while on the job, your employer is required to report your injury to its insurance company. You should not assume that your employer or its insurer will protect your interests. The paperwork necessary to process your claim can be tedious and overwhelming. At Shabbick & Associates, our team of attorneys understands the process necessary to help you obtain full wage loss benefits and medical coverage, or maintain these benefits if the employer seeks to end them. In addition to ensuring the employer is following the required procedures or when there are disputes over how much you are entitled to, our lawyers are committed to fighting for your interests in court and with a team of expert witnesses. Contact our office immediately for a free consultation* to discuss your claim before you sign any documents from your employer or its insurer. You may be approached by the employer or its insurer to settle your case for a lump sum. The offer is usually accompanied by a threat to take action against you. You should consult with an attorney at Shabbick & Associates to be certain that you receive a fair and adequate settlement.

Regardless of your age, planning for your future should be a paramount concern. Our office focuses on the preparation of Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Advanced Care Directives (Living Wills). Without a Will, the State decides how your assets will be distributed upon death. If you are looking to ensure that your assets are distributed in a certain way and to specific individuals, contact the attorneys at Shabbick & Associates to prepare your Will. Our attorneys will work closely with you so that all of your assets are properly allocated according to your wishes. Our law firm also prepares Powers of Attorney to legally allow another person to manage your financial and business matters if you cannot act for yourself. Additionally, we prepare Advanced Care Directives, which are legal documents that specify your wishes for medical care if you are unable to make them yourself. These documents are not only essential for your wishes but you should also consider having your adult children prepare a Power of Attorney and Advanced Care Directive so that you can assist them for their financial and medical needs, if it becomes necessary. At Shabbick & Associates, we are dedicated to helping you and your family plan for your future financial and healthcare needs.Social Security Disability
If you become disabled before you reach retirement age, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits. However, there are many factors that must be considered before you are found entitled to these benefits. The most important consideration is whether your medical condition qualifies as a “disability” under the Social Security rules and regulations. Often, even if you do everything correctly, you may still be denied benefits. If you are denied, you have limited time to file an appeal. You should contact Shabbick & Associates immediately. Our attorneys understand the complexity of the Social Security process and we are dedicated to helping you obtain the benefits you deserve.Summary
