Services Provided by Sandy Sanderson Include:

Personal Injury

If you are injured in an accident through no fault of your own, it can be a devastating experience. Medical bills, lost wages and painful injuries are all difficult to deal with. Thankfully, it is an experience that most people will only deal with one or two times in their lives. This, however, is one of the reasons the process is so stressful. Insurance companies have people who deal with these cases every day. They are trained to resolve these cases for as little money as possible. In order to protect your rights, it is important to speak to a personal injury attorney who is on your side, as soon as possible after an accident.

Social Security Disability

If you have a physical or mental disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. In any Social Security Disability case, documentation is the key. It is important to be able to show the Social Security Administration medical records that reveal why your doctors feel you are limited physically or mentally.

The initial application for Social Security Disability benefits can be done on your own. In fact, we would encourage you to do the initial application on your own. If you are one of the lucky ones to be approved based on the initial application, you will save on attorney's fees if you do it yourself. You can apply online at www.ssa.gov/applyfordisability.

If your initial application for Social Security Disability benefits is denied, you may want to seek an attorney at that time.

Wrongful Death

Our firm handles major accidents for the heirs of those killed by the negligence of others. Damages in wrongful death cases include things such as burial expenses, the loss of the future economic support of the deceased, the loss of the society, companionship and guidance of the deceased. In many cases the heirs of the deceased may also have a personal injury claim on behalf of the estate as well. If the deceased lived and suffered from his injuries from the accident prior to death, then there may be a separate personal injury claim that may be pursued.

Workers’ Compensation

If you are injured on the job, you may be entitled to Workers' Compensation benefits. Unfortunately, not everyone injured on the job is entitled to Workers' Compensation benefits. However, this is why it is very important to speak to an attorney if you have suffered an on the job injury and the insurance company wants to take your statement. What you say and how you say it during that statement can go a long way in determining whether or not you ultimately receive Workers' Compensation benefits.

If the insurance company accepts your claim and agrees to pay, you could be entitled to three types of benefits: First, you are entitled to have all of your medical expenses that are related to the claim paid. Second, you should receive two-thirds of your lost wages during the time you are out of work, once you have been out of work more than seven days.

Finally, if you have a permanent disability, you are entitled to payment for that permanent disability.

Estates and Estate Planning

Planning your estate not only gives you peace of mind that your wishes will be carried out, it also reduces the worries, headaches, and potential disagreements among your family and heirs. Estate planning is not just about drafting a will, however. Documents such as a Durable Power of Attorney and a Health Care Power of Attorney can be of great benefit to you and your family if you become incapacitated.

When a loved one passes, administering of the estate can be confusing and difficult. You don’t have to do it alone. An attorney can help guide you through the process of administering the estate.

Real Estate

When you are purchasing Real Estate, a good attorney is an essential part of your team. You need an attorney to search the title and look for potential liens or other encumbrances. These services eliminate worry and potential future problems for the buyer.
