Long Term Disability Claims
Long term disability insurance is designed help support you if you become ill or suffer an injury that prevents you from working for an extended time. Under most insurance policies, long term benefits kick in immediately once your short term benefits have expired – usually after 180 days, but the length of time will depend upon the specific terms of your employer’s plan. Long term disability benefits last much longer than short term benefits because they are intended to help a person make up for lost income when they are disabled for many months or even years. These benefits are paid until you can return to work or for the number of years set forth in the policy.
Assisting Clients With the Filing Process and Appealing Unfair Denials
Sadly, if you become sick or injured, the insurance company may make it very difficult for you to collect the benefits you are due. The Chicago long term disability attorneys at Bryant Legal Group PC are very aware of the various tactics insurance companies use to delay payments and deny coverage even when a claim for disability benefits is legitimate. We carefully guide our clients through the claims filing process, working hard to obtain all the documents and records needed to properly support their claims. It is very important to make sure that every piece of evidence is submitted during the claims filing process because if the insurance company denies coverage and the dispute ends up in court, you are generally precluded from adding any new information to your file.
The attorneys at our firm know how to build a claims file that will give you the best chance of getting the long term disability benefits you deserve. We draw upon decades of industry knowledge to collect and assemble the most persuasive evidence for your case, including MRIs, CT scans and other medical tests and vocational evaluations. While you may think that that you can manage the process on your own, you run the risk of making a mistake that could cost you your benefits. When you work with an attorney at our firm, we will make sure that everything is done right so that you can maximize your chances of success.
