Meeting with a Disability Lawyer

Most people meet with a lawyer maybe once or twice in their entire

lives. When you meet with a lawyer on a case where you are

no longer able to work, you should expect to meet with someone

who is knowledgeable about disability claims. Two of the most

common types of disability claims are workers' compensation

claims and social security claims. At our law firm here in Alabama,

we do only those types of cases that relate to workers' compensation

or social security. We focus on these two types of cases

because they are similar. Most people who come in for either type

of case have a lot of things in common:

1. They are use to working.

2. They can no longer work and are disabled, either temporarily

or permanently.

3. They are worried about how they are going to pay their

bills.

4. They are worried about what will happen if they lose their

case and they are still unable to work.

5. They are worried about long-term medical treatment for

their injury or disease.
