Helping Injured & Disabled Workers

Experienced Ohio Workers' Compensation and Social Security Disability Lawyers

Fighting to secure your disability benefits

Many injured or disabled workers get discouraged when their initial applications for Workers' Compensation or Social Security Disability benefits are denied. Vanderhorst & Burgy, LLC, can help turn the tide when the Social Security Administration or the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation program has turned down your request for benefits. 

Our 2 attorney firm is dedicated to advocating for you, the injured or disabled worker. We bring more than 35 years of combined experience with administrative law hearings and appeals to guide each case toward the proper resolution by preparing the appropriate evidentiary and medical records needed to convince the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) or Hearing Officer. Our goal is to obtain compensation and medical benefits for you, the injured worker. 

Maintaining a focus on financial recovery

Government disability programs are controlled by rigorous eligibility requirements and strict filing deadlines. Delays and denials of claims are not uncommon. In fact, many legitimately incapacitated workers are denied benefits on the basis of minor errors in the application process. Attorneys Mike Vanderhorst and Kristi Burgy are committed to assisting individuals with the expeditious and accurate preparation of their claims. We work hard to help you secure the financial and medical benefits to which you are entitled. The scope of our practice encompasses:
