When a sickness or injury takes you out of work, you may feel your world has been turned upside down. Benefit programs that may offer help--Social Security disability, short-term and long-term disability, and workers' compensation--are complicated, hard to deal with, and hard to understand. What's worse, these programs often deny benefits to people who should receive them.
Our Charlotte Attorney Can Help with All Aspects of Your Case
For over three decades, Lynn Bishop has been working to help people with disabilities and injuries receive the benefits they deserve. She has a deep understanding of the laws governing all three of the benefit programs that may offer help when you're unable to work.
- Social Security Disability Benefits: Lynn is a certified Specialist in Social Security Disability Law. She knows how to work with you and your doctors to prove how your health problems keep you from being able to work.
- Short-term and long-term disability benefits: Group disability benefits are governed by the Employees Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). This federal law and the court decisions interpreting it make qualifying for benefits so hard that most disability lawyers won't touch an ERISA case. Lynn takes deep satisfaction in helping her clients obtain these benefits.
- Workers' compensation benefits: If your workers' compensation claim has been wrongfully denied, Lynn will request a hearing before the North Carolina Industrial Commission and work hard to prove that your injury or occupational disease should be covered. If your claim has been accepted, Lynn will make sure that you receive all the compensation and medical treatment to which you are entitled.
