Falls on stairs may be the fault of the property owner

In most cases, when you are in a public place, you may have access to an elevator or escalator to get to a different floor. However, you may prefer to take the stairs for health reasons or because it is more convenient than trying to find an elevator. Unfortunately, if the owner of the Florida building you are visiting does not take proper precautions for your safety, you may end up with serious injuries from a fall on the stairs.

What information do you need to seek disability benefits?

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are a necessity in America. They're there to cover the needs of those who are injured, have a disability or a severe illness that is expected to last a year or longer or result in death. There is a very strict definition of a disability based on federal law, which makes it challenging to obtain SSDI benefits.
