"If I have depression or anxiety issues, can I get mental anguish damages under the FDCPA?"
An abusive debt collector harasses you. You want to sue under the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act). Because this abusive collector has caused you mental anguish. But someone tells you, "If you have ever had depression or anxiety, you can't get mental anguish damages." Is this true? No. Having "pre-existing" conditions -- such as depression or mental anxiety -- just means that you are more vulnerable to someone harassing you. It would be like having back surgery and then some idiot runs a red light and plows into you. He can't say, "Well, since you had a bad back I'm not responsible for hurting you even worse!" (They do argue this but we have no problem with this argument when we sue reckless drivers who break the safety rules and harm other drivers). So don't let this type of non sense worry you or make you not file suit against an abusive debt collector. You don't get compensation for what you were already suffering before the collector abused you but you can get paid for the extra damage the collector has caused you. We'll be happy to help you think through your options if you live in Alabama or want to file suit in Alabama. Best wishes and thanks for watching this video! John John G.

First Responders’ Work Takes a Mental Toll
A hero is defined as ‘one who shows great courage,’ and few careers exemplify that more than firefighting. “I just fell in love with it, and that was my goal from being a little kid until I became an adult and finally became a fireman,” said Brian Cristofono, a former firefighter. Firefighting was in Cristofono blood, and Monday morning in Brooklyn Center, he had the opportunity to speak to a group of people in the profession. “My uncle told me if I wanted to be a full time firefighter to become a paramedic,” he said. For 13 years, the Plymouth resident got to live out his dream of being a firefighter and paramedic with the Mdewakanton, Maplewood and St. Paul fire departments. “It was a dream come true,” Cristofono said. “I wanted to be busy. I wanted to get all the fires. I wanted to get all the medicals, and I became an adrenaline junkie.” It’s a job that requires strength and tenacity, but what’s often forgotten is that first responders encounter people on their worst days, and he says they’re not trained on how to process it. “The most horrific things you can imagine, we see it, we deal with it,” Cristofono said. “After ten years on the job, I lost my family, my family fell apart. I got divorced. Found myself having panic attacks on the job and could no longer do it. Drove me to the point of almost suicide.” Cristofono eventually retired in 2016 after being diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Now, he’s on a mission to talk to other first responders about the importance of getting help. “I feel it’s extremely important for everyone to hear the message of what Brian has to say,” said Gary Hendrickson, Brooklyn Center’s deputy fire chief. Hendrickson asked Cristofono to hold a seminar at the Brooklyn Center fire station Monday morning. “As a leader within the organization, we need to encourage our firefighters to basically understand that this could happen to you,” Hendrickson said. “And if it does, here’s some resources for you to deal with it at hand.” Cristofono says he’s getting the help he needs, but during his talks, it’s evident that there are issues that he still deals with to this day. “There’s five line of duty deaths of guys I knew, and three of them were suicides,” Cristofono said. “And that’s kind of a big reason why I do these talks, too.” The hope is that by getting his story out in the open, others in the profession won’t suffer the same fate. “It might help. It might save their life,” Cristofono said. “It might save their family. That’s what I hope.” Meanwhile, Cristofono is also helping a state lawmaker with a bill that would make it easier for first responders who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to receive workers compensation. Aside from holding the seminars for first responders, Cristofono is back in school, where he’s studying to become a registered nurse.

Social Security Disability: What NOT To Do
http://www.lawmed.com/ http://www.YouTube.com/HensonFuerst/ The process of applying for Social Security Disability benefits is long and difficult. If you make the wrong move, you could RUIN your chances of getting benefits. In this video, David Henson--managing partner of HensonFuerst Attorneys--discusses what NOT to do during the application process. For more information about many other legal issues related to workers' compensation or personal injury, please visit our website at http://www.lawmed.com/. And don't forget to watch our other videos at http://www.youtube.com/hensonfuerst/. (Principal office of Henson & Fuerst, PA: 2501 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607) Applying for Social Security Disability is tough. At the time when you are feeling bad enough to be considered disabled, the agency seems to want to make the process as difficult as possible. If you want to make their job easier, I can help you with that. Hi, I'm David Henson, managing partner with HensonFuerst Attorneys. We help people through the long and exhausting process of attaining Social Security Disability benefits everyday. Of the many things we've learned along the way, one lesson is clear: The SSA looks for reasons to reject your claim. Here are the top 5 things you can do to help SS shut you out. 1. Don't get medical care for your conditions. 2. Do drugs or alcohol. 3.Break the law, or end up in jail. 4.Don't keep your lawyer up-to-date on your situation. 5. Miss deadlines or appointments. If you work hard all your life, and end up so injured or sick that you can no longer work, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. But just because you are eligible, that doesn't mean you are entitled. There is a world of reasons why your case may be not be approved...don't hand the courts a reason to deny your claim. This is David Henson, with HensonFuerst Attorneys. For more information about how we can help you fight for your SSD benefits, visit our website at LAWMED.com/SocialSecurityDisability/. Or, call us at 1-800-4-LAWMED. If you have questions, HensonFuerst has answers.

After a lone gunman opened fire on the Orlando gay bar June 12, killing 49 people, Realin helped remove bodies from the club. “When he got home, 2:30 the next morning, he came in very quiet … looked at both of our kids, then went in the shower and just lost it,” his wife, Jessica, told Orlando TV station WFTV. “And he didn't stop crying. The next day, it was on and off. And it's just been really hard.” She said that in the weeks since, her husband has been a “different” person. “The man that left my house that morning did not come back to me that night,” Jessica Realin said. “He’s still not back.” Read more here: http://www.advocate.com/politics/2016/8/23/florida-denies-pulse-first-responder-workmans-comp-ptsd Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian Cast: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Winning Strategies for Back Pain Disability Cases
How to Win Your Back Pain Case before a Social Security Disability Judge Social Security disability claims arising from back pain are the most common types of cases seen by SSA administrative law judges. If you expect to win, your case needs to stand out - in this video I discuss the factors that are most convincing to judges. Realize as well that because spinal injuries are common, your judge may have undergone back surgery and recovered completely. Of course, judges likely have access to very expansive health insurance with access to top doctors and thorough rehabilitation before returning to a non-physical labor job. When applicable, I focus on my client's long and consistent work history - and I have my clients testify that they would not have left a long and fulfilling career to sit at home for 2 years hoping to collect $1,500 per month from Social Security. I also encourage my clients to try to work - in my experience one or more "unsuccessful work attempts" serves as compelling evidence that you want to return to work and you were willing to try to push through pain and discomfort. The better cases have a thick medical records file. You should seek on-going treatment with an orthopedist, neurosurgeon and/or pain doctor and continue to seek treatment. You should comply with all of your doctor's recommendations - even painful or difficult suggestions such as physical therapy, weight loss and smoking cessation. Your record should contain multiple MRI reports or CT scans showing an on-going problem. A 3 year old X-ray is not sufficient. And prior to your hearing you should meet with your lawyer to practice testimony - avoid using phrases like "I can't sit for very long or lift very much." You want to testify with as much specificity as you can about your capacity to engage in exertional activities. If you'd like to learn more about how I prepare back pain cases for hearings along with several case studies detailing my experiences in actual hearings, please visit my web site at http://www.georgiasocialsecuritydisabilityattorney.com/case-strategies-and-case-studies/back-pain-winning-social-security-disability-strategies/.

Psychiatric Grand Rounds: Legal Aspects of Disability Learn the basics of the Legal Aspects of Disability Insurance from two legal experts. People suffering from mental and psychological conditions qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if their condition prevents them from working. As in cases involving physical disabilities, in order to qualify you must have been employed for a certain amount of time prior to filing and must present medical documentation regarding your condition. Many first time applicants for SSD and SSI are denied, but an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer can help strengthen your case. Distinguished Greensburg-based lawyers Vincent Quatrini, Esq. and Michael Quatrini, Esq. will discuss the various issues that mental health professionals, clients and interested family members should know to successfully navigate the legal labyrinths related to Disability Insurance and Mental Health.

What Are the Time Limits for Making a Virginia Workers Compensation Claim?
Injured Workers Law Firm - Richmond, Virginia 804.755.7755 http://www.injuredworkerslawfirm.com There are so many deadlines and exceptions in a workers comp claim that it is really hard to explain all of them in a general way for this video. The two most important deadlines are that you must notify your employer within 30 days of your injury and that you need to file your claim for benefits with the workers compensation commission within 2 years of the date of the accident. Many times an employer will say, "You have to tell me within 24 hours that you've been injured on the job," but the law says that you have to notify the employer within 30 days that you were injured on the job. This is to give the employer an opportunity to investigate the claim, to look at the machine where you were hurt, ask other employees, "Did they see what happened?" So the employer is not prejudiced. In reality the ideal is to notify your supervisor immediately, so there is no excuse to deny and/or delay your claim. But as long as you've done it within 30 days, you have met the legal time limit for giving notice and ultimately at a hearing, which could be months away, you will win on this issue. The next important deadline is that you only have two years to file a claim for benefits with the workers' comp insurance commission, which is the state agency that regulates workers' compensation. Many people think that notifying the insurance company and/or getting medical care that the insurance company is paying for and/or a weekly check from the insurance company means that they have done all that they need to do. This is completely wrong and you must file a claim with the Workers Compensation Commission. Remember, the injured worker has the burden to prove everything about their work accident.

Douglas Road, Suite 217, Coral Gables, Florida 33134 | One of the most frustrating things that I have to deal with when I'm representing injured workers on a day to day basis, is having to sit down with them and explain to them the grim reality that in the state of Florida, an employer does not have to maintain your job even though you suffered a work place injury to no fault of your own. This is something that oft times requires us to take a step back, understand your needs, and evaluate the best approach in terms of perfecting remedies above and beyond returning to the work that you were doing at the time of your injury.

Is Your Workers Compensation Claim Being Handled Correctly?
http://www.schmidtkramer.com/ In Pennsylvania, when you’re injured in the course of your employment while you are at work it’s considered a workman’s compensation claim. No one wants to be injured while working but if it happens there are options. There are specific rules to workman’s compensations claims that can get confusing. For example, if you don’t receive the proper paperwork. Another example is if claims are not filed in a timely manner or a petition is not filed then the case can be time bared . You may think that the firm or that your company is handling the claim and handling it correctly but you don’t know that for sure. You may trust your employer and your employer may have good intentions to do the right thing. Unfortunately, if everything is not done properly and you run into problems down the line you may be out of luck. It’s important to have an attorney that is representing your interest look at the paperwork, make sure it’s the correct paperwork, and make sure that your interests are being represented so later on you and your family are not put in a situation where you are not getting benefits that you are entitled to under the law.

Wal-Mart Denied Proper and Timely Healthcare
Community Rally Wife Seeking Justice for Husbands Untimely Death After Wal-Mart Denied Proper and Timely Healthcare On Tuesday, March 3, 2009, at 3:30 p.m., there will be a rally in protest of the death of Don Allen in front of the Georgia Workers Compensation Board, 270 Peachtree Street, NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30303-1299. March 3, 2009 commemorates the 2-year anniversary of the death of Don Allen. After 2 years, Wal-Mart is still denying spousal death benefits and workers compensation benefits due his wife, Clarietha Allen, from her husbands wrongful death. On September 18, 1997, Don Allen was employed by Wal-Mart d/b/a Sams Club in Tucker, GA. While performing his regular work duties, a 27 TV, placed on a soda machine by his supervisor, fell on his head. Wal-Mart refused to call an ambulance to transport him to the hospital. Don Allen sustained a spinal cord injury, herniated disc, post concussion syndrome, nerve damage, back injury, and psychological problems. His case was deemed catastrophic by the Appellate Division of the State Board of Workers Compensation in September 2006. Don Allen was overwhelmed with his illness and was unable to do a last deposition requested by Wal-Mart in December of 2006. As a result of Wal-Mart not providing proper and timely healthcare and prolonging the case for 10 years, Don Allen died an untimely death on March 3, 2007. In an effort to help Don Allen and assist others to fight for their rights as injured workers, his wife, Clarietha Allen, established Georgia Employee Association (GEA) in 2000. The organization is dedicated to providing advocacy, representation and information for Georgia employees. It is committed to facilitating statewide economic growth in an equitable atmosphere that respects profit and protect people. We are asking other advocates and Georgia workers to support this organization and show up and participate in this rally. For further questions contact Clarietha Allen, Georgia Employee Association, 9 Gammon Avenue, S.W., Atlanta, GA 30315, Phone: (770) 463-0087.

Workplace Injury Compensation: Can you Sue for More?
Workers compensation may not be the only type of compensation you can receive. If you were injured while at work you may have been told that you can only receive workplace injury compensation, however, this information may not be correct. Most workers will only ever receive this form of compensation but there are certain situations that may allow you to sue for damages. If the actions of a third party caused your accident and subsequent injuries, they could be found liable. If a toxic substance caused your injuries you might have a claim against the manufacturer. This type of claim is known as a ‘Toxic tort lawsuit’ If you were injured by a product that was found to be defective you may be able to hold the manufacturer liable. If you were injured because of your employers bad or deliberate conduct, they could be found liable. If your employer does not have workers compensation insurance you could take them to a civil court. Any compensation you receive could include a monetary award and benefits if you have been injured. Permanent and temporary disability payments are not always very high, and they don’t compensate for pain and suffering. LINK TO PAIN & SUFFERING Neither does the compensation act as a form of punishment (Known as ‘Punitive damages’) towards the employer, in the hope that they may cease from expecting people to work in dangerous or unsafe conditions. This is why it is hugely important for an injured worker to understand that they may be able to sue for damages. Please note that if you have been badly injured you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance if your injuries prevent you from working. Defective Products If you were injured by a defective product such as a piece of equipment or some machinery that did not work properly or was significantly dangerous, the manufacturer could be liable for your injury. If the manufacturer did not warn you or any other employee that the machinery or piece of equipment was dangerous or faulty they may have to pay compensation to cover the cost of: Lost earnings Medical bills Pain and suffering You may want to think about speaking to an attorney about your rights, and filing a complaint with the Department of Labor’s Occupational Health and Safety Administration if you were working in an unsafe area or under unsafe conditions. You can do this in addition to filing a compensation claim. Toxic Substances Occasionally people work with toxic chemicals and substances, and at times they may cause illnesses and injuries. Any substance that causes harm could be the subject of a ‘Toxic Tort’. - Acute and latent toxic injuries Acute toxic injuries (Such as poisonings and chemical burns) may be easy to spot right away, whereas latent injuries (Such as lung disease and cancers) may take a lot longer. Latent injuries may take a lot longer to prove simply because there could be a large amount of time between someone working with toxic chemicals, and being diagnosed with a life-threatening condition. Those who have suffered due to being exposed to asbestos have been very successful when filing a lawsuit, this is thought to be because the link between asbestos and Mesothelioma can be easily proven. Deliberate or Bad Conduct If your employer’s conduct leaves room for improvement or it’s deliberately bad and you have sustained injuries, you may be able to sue your employer for damages. The monetary award that you might receive could exceed what you would otherwise receive from your worker’s compensation. Most states will allow a worker to sue their employer under these circumstances, however, the following states do not: Alabama Maine Pennsylvania Wyoming Georgia Rhode Island Indiana New Hampshire Virginia In addition to this, the federal government will not let its employees file a claim under these circumstances. In approximately 10 states an employee can sue outside of the workplace injury compensation, but only if their employer has acted in a reckless or grossly negligent manner that resulted in injuries. No Worker’s Compensation Insurance? If your employer does not have compensation insurance you may have to take them to a civil court and thereby sue them for the injuries you sustained. There is a potential that you might receive a larger monetary award than you may have received from worker’s compensation. However, you will need to prove that your employer was completely at fault and their action or inaction caused your injuries.
