You Did Not Plan on Injury or Disability, But Now You Have Question About Your Oregon Auto Collision Injury Claim.
You are getting calls from two, three, maybe four claims adjusters. You may be getting a lot of mail too, and not just from insurance adjusters, but the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles, hospitals and doctors, and even attorneys soliciting their services. There are forms to fill out, and medical releases to sign.
- Which forms and releases do you sign, and which do you ignore?
- Do you have to give a statement to the insurance adjuster?
- What about your car?
- What about lost income?
- What about the future?
Don't make the mistakes others have.

You Have a Denied Workers' Compensation Claim
"I have been working without back pain for "X" number of years, and they are telling me it's a 'pre-existing condition. "
It sounds crazy, but it happens all the time.
Private insurance companies decide your claim, and this system is nothing less than bizarre, and nowhere near fair.
Oregon Workers' Compensation insurers need only a "legitimate doubt" to justify a claim denial, and that is not much.
Even if your claim is accepted, the insurance company will often only take responsibility for some of your injuries. This affects you, your family, and your future.
You may be able to appeal your denial and win.
You may be able to hold the insurance company accountable for all of your injuries.
You may want to resolve your case with the insurance company, and take control of your future.
To find out where you stand, Joe Di Bartolomeo offers his free book, Navigating the Oregon Workers' Compensation Maze. The title is no mistake, and you can order your free copy here.
You Have a Denied Social Security Claim, And You Want to Know What To Do About It
Most people want to work, but some cannot. Social Security Disability Insurance is not a hand-out, it is a disability insurance policy that you purchased from the federal government.
Supplemental Security Income (also known as SSI) benefits are based on need, and disability, and available to those who did not work outside of the house, or have been disabled for several years.
Proving "disability" does not mean proving you are an invalid, it means proving that you cannot work eight hours a day, five days a week, and do it consistently.
The appeals process for a Social Security disability claim can be brutal. The state agencies reviewing the initial application ask for the same information over and over, but you have to wonder how closely, if at all, they are reviewing your application. First time appeals, on the average, are denied nine out of ten times. Wait time for a hearing date with a judge can exceed well over a year.
Proving your Social Security Disability claim is often complex, and involves medical evidence, medical opinions, and real life evidence of how your conditions affect your ability to work. You may be facing an appeal, or you may be wondering if it even makes sense to apply.
Get a basic understanding of the application process, your rights to appeal, and WHAT NOT TO DO. Joe Di Bartolomeo has authored The Social Security Guide. This is a free book answers the basic questions, and provides critical information that can help you prove your claim early, and what not to do. Claim your free book here.
