Long Term Disability Claims
Whether you participate in a long-term disability plan provided by your employer or you have purchased your own policy, the goal is the same: to have a safety net in place in the event a serious injury or illness keeps you from working for an extended period of time.
Like all types of insurance, however, companies have a strong incentive to do everything they can to avoid paying claims: their own bottom line. That means they can make it difficult if not impossible for claimants to get the benefits they’re supposed to when they need them most.
If you’ve found yourself struggling to get your claim approved — or have had your benefits terminated even though you’re still disabled and unable to work — my firm is here to help. I have spent my 35-year-plus legal career representing people in Florida who have suffered illness or injury and can’t afford to get the runaround from insurance companies. Because I’ve spent my career as a lawyer handling cases in this complex area of the law, I offer the knowledge and experience you need to make sure you get a fair shot in the disability system.
When it comes to a disability claim, you may be putting your case in jeopardy by waiting to get legal help. Learn more about how a qualified lawyer can help you, or call my Gainesville office now toll free at 866-544-3069 for a no-fee consultation to discuss the details of your claim.
