Do you have a disabled child? Whether their disability is physical or mental, it can be an anxious experience to watch them become adults and worry over whether they can care for themselves once they reach 18 years of age.
It may not feel right to you, but your child becomes an adult in the eyes of the state once they turn 18. One moment they’re a 17-year-old doing their high school homework, and the next they can vote, join the military, and they have legally-protected rights and autonomy in regards to matters such as their healthcare and finances.
Each November, we observe Veterans Day, honoring those who serve or have served in the United States Armed Forces. Veterans deserve this honor for the service they’ve given our country - and they deserve our support as well!
Have you been hurt on the job? It’s pretty awful, right? Definitely not an ideal situation. Thanks to legal protections for workers (and employers), however, you have the right to file for workers’ compensation in Ohio.
