PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY IN LOCKPORT, NY
Lockport is both a city and the town that surrounds it in Niagara County, NY. The city is the Niagara County with a population of 21,165 according to 2010 census figures, and an estimated population of 20,305 as of 2019.
Its name derives from a set of Erie Canal locks within the city that were built to allow canal barges to traverse the 60-foot natural drop of the Niagara Escarpment. It is part of the Buffalo–Niagara Falls Metropolitan Area.
The New York State Legislature authorized the Erie Canal’s construction in April 1816. The route proposed by surveyors was to traverse an area in central Niagara County, New York, which was then “uncivilized” and free of White settlers. At the time, the nearest settlers were in nearby Cold Springs, New York. Following the announcement, land speculators began to buy large plots along and near the proposed route of the canal. By December 1820, when the exact location of the step locks had been determined, the area that would become Lockport was owned by only fifteen men, many of whom were Quakers.
SOCIAL SECURITY CLAIMS ATTORNEY IN LOCKPORT, NY
Sometimes injuries or illness can inhibit you from being able to earn a living. Unfortunately, the bills do not stop because you are unable to work. If you are physically or mentally disabled to the point where you’re unable to work, you may be entitled to benefits from a Social Security claim. These benefits may be available under Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Taking on the world of the Social Security Administration’s application and/or appeal procedures can be intimidating and particularly stressful. As a personal injury attorney, specializing SSI/SSDI claims, I advocate for the people of Niagara County with disabilities, willing to battle the federal government for your rights.
