Long-Term Disability & Short-Term Disability Claims Attorneys

Anyone can find himself unable to work because of an illness or an accident at any time. If you are fortunate enough to be covered under private disability insurance, you will have the opportunity to collect most of your current income for a period of time defined in the policy. In many cases, however, resistance on the part of the insurance company will not only delay or frustrate your access to badly needed income, it will also add considerable stress of your situation.

Disability Claims Attorneys

If you have suffered a serious illness or injury that keeps you away from work and you’re considering a claim for disability benefits under a personal or group policy, you should seek legal advice before you even fill out the application. Mistakes in the earliest stages of the disability insurance process can put you at a serious disadvantage that you may not be able to correct later.

Call for Advice about Private Disability Insurance Claims

We also advise people about their options when their disability benefits are suspended, terminated or rescinded. Especially when the benefits have been in place for a long time, the insurer will require medical reports and similar updates to document continued disability. Insurers will also put disabled people under surveillance to spot signs of activity inconsistent with the disabling condition.
