Social Security Disability
Are you hurt and unable to work? You may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. If you’ve applied and been denied benefits, you may have a legitimate case and need the help of a lawyer to appeal your claim. Attorney H. Jeff McLeod can help protect your rights and get you the money you deserve.

About Social Security Disability
The fate of your case is based largely on your medical records. It is extremely important that you continue to go to your doctor and report ALL your problems - mental and physical. If money is a problem, call us for "free" healthcare providers. To SSA, NO TREATMENT means no win, NO BENEFITS.

We have handled about every type of disability case there is, including:
• Breathing problems • Anxiety • Back pain
• Heart disease • Sickle cell anemia • Arthritis
• Blindness • Alcohol and drug addictions • Obesity
• Seizures despite the use of medication • Bipolar disorder • Diabetes
• Cancer • Chronic Fatigue syndrome • Cirrhosis
• Depression • Fibromyalgia • Chronic pain in any area
The “drill” for disability-- the five step sequential evaluation (20 CFR §404.1520)
1. If you are NOT working or working earning less than $940/mo ---- (but there are
IMPORTANT EXCEPTIONS where you CAN earn more and still get disability),
2. You have a “Severe” impairment? (“Any Impairment or combination which significantly
limits your physical or mental ability to do basic work activities”), AND
3. If you meet the “listings” (a check list of impairment levels; you are considered disabled
(an automatic winner); IF NOT:
4. Your impairments must prevent you from doing “Past Relevant Works” (your old jobs) AND
5. Your impairment must prevent you from doing ALL other work (at this point, they go to
the “Grids” a series of tables that use your age, education, past work experience— and, most importantly, your RFC (Residual Functional Capacity, i.e., how much you can lift, how long you can stand/walk and sit)-- The “Grids” than indicate whether you are “disabled or not disabled”--- Here, being over 50 and having less than a high school education help a lot. Importantly, the Grids are only used if your impairments are strictly of a physical nature— i.e., your chances improve if you have emotional problems.---- As in poker, the game is simple, the winning is not.

Attorney fees? Good question;
You pay nothing up-front.---- The attorney fees are usually 25% of your “back-time” benefits or $6,000
— which ever is LOWER. But we have to win, to earn any fee. In the rare case that we have to go to Federal court, the fee is simply 25% of the “backtime”. In addition, there are “costs” to update the medical records etc. When the case is completed, you reimburse us for these “costs.” Of course, the costs vary in every case, but they usually run well under $100.

For example, if your back-time benefits are $12,000 and your costs are $60. The fee is the LOWER of $3,000 ($12,000 x 25%) OR $6,000--- plus your costs of, say, $60. (The ethical rules require that I mention that the 25% fee is figured BEFORE any costs are deducted from you back-time benefits.)
But there are NO attorney fees, unless we WIN your case.

If you have been denied disability, your best chance to win is at a hearing before a real judge. But by that time you have been denied twice. Certainly, by that time, you should sincerely consider hiring an experienced Disability Attorney. Jeff McLeod has been doing these for more than 25 years; give him a call 864-226-3330.

Truck Accidents/Personal Injury
There were over 34,000 fatal crashes in the U.S. in
2008, many of which involved large trucks. Sharing
South Carolina roads with big trucks can be a
nerve-racking experience, especially considering
that some truck drivers ignore laws to help protect law-abiding drivers, such as violating hours-of-service
regulations. These regulations state that commercial
drivers may only be behind the wheel for a set number
of hours every week, but they are seldom obeyed.
Many truck drivers ignore these rules, putting you and
your family at unnecessary risk of being in a South
Carolina truck accident.

South Carolina truck accidents often have fatal results and tear apart the lives of loved ones left
behind. Lengthy recovery times, mounting medical costs, constant uncertainty weighing upon
you, wondering if you’ll be able to afford all your treatment and hoping that the insurance
company will cover your considerable bills are all something you may need to face.
Unfortunately, the insurance company will often try to offer you the least possible amount of
money after delaying your claim so you will take their offer, even though the money offered
won’t necessarily cover your out-of-pocket costs, much less the pain and suffering resulting from
your South Carolina truck accident injury.

Attorney H. Jeff McLeod has been helping injured victims get the money they need— the money
they deserve— for 25 years...

Time is of the essence. The longer you wait after you or someone you love is injured in a South
Carolina truck accident, the higher the chance is of evidence disappearing; witnesses moving or
forgetting what they saw; or the trucking company getting rid of driver logs, inspection records,
scale tickets, and any other written documents that may help your case. If you have been involved
in a truck accident in South Carolina, contact Attorney H. Jeff McLeod today. Free Consultation If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a South Carolina truck accident, let Attorney H. Jeff McLeod help protect your rights and get you the compensation you truly deserve. We offer a free initial consultation so you can discuss your claim with us and get your questions answered.

Workers’ Compensation

entitled to compensation for your injuries. If you’ve been injured on the job, contact Attorney H. Jeff McLeod. We’ve helped other clients receive substantial recoveries and we will aggressively fight to ensure you receive the money you’re owed.

Compensation You Deserve.
Although the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that sprains and strains were the most
common nature of on-the-job injuries and illnesses reported in 2008, they also reported that 68
people in South Carolina died from workplace injuries. No matter the severity of your injury, H. Jeff McLeod will fight to make sure you aren’t denied the benefits you deserve. South Carolina workers’ compensation can be used to cover the costs of medical expenses, lost wages, and any health care treatment you might need in the future.

Slip and Fall Injuries
When you’re doing something as ordinary as shopping in the supermarket or walking up an
apartment complex stairway to visit a friend, you don’t expect to get injured. Sadly, many South
Carolina residents find themselves seriously injured after trip and fall or slip and fall accidents
that happen in common places such as these. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries as
a result of a South Carolina slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, you may be due
compensation. Let Attorney H. Jeff McLeod help you evaluate your potential injury claim and
advise you on your options for moving forward.

Premises Liability 101
Our South Carolina slip and fall lawyers have helped many South Carolina residents get the
compensation they deserve for their injuries. The key to a slip and fall accident claim is proving
negligence on the part of the property owner, meaning that he or she was negligent in keeping the
premises free from potential hazards to others, and is therefore liable for the injuries that occurred.
Determining who is liable in a slip and fall accident can at times be challenging for someone who
isn’t experienced in premises liability law because some properties have owners, managers, and
renters. In some cases, both a property owner and the business owner renting a space can be
liable, while in others only one party may be responsible.

Inspect the site of your slip and fall accident and take photographs to document the condition as
soon as possible. The property owner may correct the hazardous condition soon after your fall in
attempts to avoid a lawsuit, so it’s important to get photographs promptly. Also take note of the
area, looking at things such as lighting, security, signs, etc. Try to get the names and contact
information of anyone who witnessed your fall. These people may be needed to testify or give a
statement for your claim. Contact a South Carolina slip and fall lawyer today.
