For example, adult children of dementia patients are often faced with missing time at work, lost wages, missing time with their own children and a mountain of stress trying to keep tabs on their loved one.

It may be hard to believe, but when it comes to disability compensation, insurers – both privately purchased or through that which is available from employers – often deliberately and wrongfully deny people's disability benefits as a way to increase corporate profits. Taking advantage of the person's weakened state, these companies assume that injured or sick parties are unlikely to file suit. Rosen, Moss, Snyder & Bleefeld, LLP, disability attorneys in PA, are available to provide comprehensive, skilled legal representation for those who believe they are owed greater claims or benefits.
