A Disabled resident of Colorado Springs has filed a lawsuit against his neighborhood’s homeowners association and the City of Colorado Springs citing multiple issues with the sidewalks in his residential community. The resident requires a wheel chair to ambulate and has referenced multiple areas with six foot gaps in the sidewalk which prevents him from his commute throughout the neighborhood. The resident states the sidewalks are not in compliance with the Americans with Disability Act. At this point, the City has made some repairs and now believes the Homeowners Association is responsible for the remaining repairs. Have you or a member of your family been injured due to the negligence of homeowners association or local government? If so contact Larson and Larimer, P.C. and speak to an attorney today.

Updates on Social Security Disability Claims

With more than one million Americans awaiting a hearing on their eligibility for Social Security Disability benefits, the average wait can reach two years! The most recent statistics indicate that average nationwide wait time for a hearing decision for 2017 is 605 days.

The Social Security Disability Insurance Program was created to help disabled workers to receive financial benefits and cover medical care necessary to treat serious medical conditions, preventing a person from returning to gainful employment. However, with the backlog and increasing waiting time attributed to the system’s bureaucracy and mismanagement, injured persons suffer terrible consequences, including worsening health, increase in healthcare costs, financial and emotional strain.

If you have questions about your eligibility for Social Security benefits, or if your application got denied, attorneys at Larson & Larimer can help you. We have extensive knowledge and considerable experience handling Social Security Disability claims at application stage and throughout appeals’ process.
