I WAS RECENTLY DENIED LONG-TERM DISABILITY BENEFITS. WHEN SHOULD I HIRE A LAWYER?
You should contact an experienced disability claim lawyer immediately after the insurance company denies your claim.
WHY IS THE INSURANCE COMPANY REFUSING TO PAY MY LONG-TERM DISABILITY CLAIM WHEN I AM CLEARLY DISABLED AND UNABLE TO PERFORM MY JOB?
Many insurance companies try to deny your claims by suggesting that there isn’t sufficient evidence of a disability or that your specific condition shouldn’t make you totally disabled.
DO INSURANCE COMPANIES REALLY SNEAK AROUND, VIDEOTAPING PEOPLE WHO FILE DISABILITY CLAIMS?
Yes, even in legitimate claims. Try not to take it personally, even through that can be hard. If you believe you are being watched you can approach the person and ask for identification. If they are legitimate private investigators, they are required to show their credentials.
IF I’M UNABLE TO WORK AT MY CURRENT JOB, AM I STILL ENTITLED TO BENEFITS IF I CAN TRAIN FOR ANOTHER JOB?
Maybe. A full review of your policy is required to know for sure. Your insurance policy may also have provisions to keep you retrained.
WHAT IF THE INSURANCE COMPANY TERMINATES MY BENEFITS WHILE I’M STILL DISABLED?
Request that your doctor give your insurance company with written documentation of your continuing disability. Don’t wait for the insurer to change its decision on appeal. Get help immediately.
