Disability Law Claims Blog

The staff at LaVan & Neidenberg cares about the disabled and we are passionate about  the issues that affect those who are applying or waiting for Social Security Disability, Veterans' Disability Compensation, and/or Long-Term Disability Insurance benefits. We make it a point to blog about important topics such as advances in the various disability claims processes, advances in medicine, upgrades to the various disability benefits programs, and much more.

The personal injury division of our firm often reports on the tri-county area's traffic accidents. The reporting of traffic accidents in no way means or implies that we represent any of the individuals involved. However, we do wish those involved a speedy recovery and we send our condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones in an automobile accident.

Join us in a discussion today or contact us for a FREE evaluation of your case.
