Your claim may have been denied because you are missing a small piece of required information or medical support for your request. Or your claim may be denied because a legal question exists as to whether or not you are entitled to participate in the Ohio Workers' Compensation Fund for your injury. Either way, you may find yourself needing help to navigate the Ohio BWC system, hearings, and any potential appeals.
Remember my first blog regarding the Case of Eric Conn? If not, click the link to read it now!
Remember not long ago I posted this story on Attorney Eric Conn... Well this is one of his co-conspirators former ALJ David Black Daugherty.
Eastern Kentucky Social Security Attorney Eric Conn has recently plead guilty to one count of stealing from the Social Security Administration and one count of paying illegal gratuities to a federal judge.
Getting approved for Social Security Disability claims are no walk in the park. You would think it would be much easier but the process can be very long and repetitive.
Although there is no law which says you need to hire a lawyer, in practical terms and regardless of how you feel about attorneys, it is difficult to handle a workers' compensation case on your own. With trained adjustors working for the insurance companies who have lawyers at their everyday disposal, hiring a qualified attorney is essential. Unless your case is extremely simple, a good lawyer is important to protect your rights. Trying to handle your own case may save you a penny but cost you a pound in the long run.
