A disability, whether sudden, or degenerative, can leave you unable to pay for your living expenses. It’s a scary and often frustrating position to be in, and most people, if they have insurance, look to their insurance companies to help.
Making a claim may seem straightforward, but unfortunately, both long term disability claims and even short term disability claims are often denied by the insurance company on simple technicalities.
It could be that the claim did not include proper medical documentation that was required by the policy or the injury/illness didn’t meet certain policy requirements. There are even times when claims are denied because the claimant may have missed a deadline.
That’s why it’s important to work with a lawyer who will advocate on your behalf.
I’ve worked on both sides of personal injury law, and I understand how insurance companies think. I know how to get you the financial compensation you deserve.
It’s ideal if you can consult with us before you make your claim, particularly if you’re filing for long term disability insurance. However, I often take on cases where the claimant has already filed, but been denied by the insurance company.
If you’ve been denied a disability insurance claim, you may still have options. When you suffer an illness or an injury, it’s about getting your life back together and providing for yourself and your family.
