Why Should I Call a Lawyer

Many people who get hurt at work are sent to a business health type center, who many times has an existing arrangement with either the worker's employer or their workers compensation carrier.  The business health centers are many times more interested in their contract with your employer or its workers compensation carrier versus your diagnosis and care.  Getting a proper diagnosis and care is essential in insuring your rights are protected under Workers Compensation Act.  An attorney will be in contact with the workers compensation carrier and advise of your rights and fight for the care and treatment, your doctor prescribed versus the provided by your employer or its insurance carrier.

Means Test Determination

An initial analysis to any bankruptcy is whether you legally must file a Chapter 13 versus a Chapter 7 due to your income.  Income determination guidelines are set by the government for each county in the country, with a median income based on size of family.  Income is your gross income, using a most recent six month average.  Income such as social security, social security disability and other similar type forms of income is not counted.  A non-filing spouse's income is counted for purposes of a married individual filing.Even if a person does not meet the threshold median income test for filing a Chapter 7, the law requires further analysis, where certain payments, such as car and house payments are counted, as well as expenses such as taxes, health insurance costs and other similar type expenses.  It is important to contact a Bankruptcy Attorney who understands both forms of the Means Test Determination to give you proper advice.
