Was your claim for disability benefits denied by your insurance provider, even if your medical condition prevents you from performing the duties of your job? If so, you are not alone. Each year, an overwhelming number of claims for disability benefits are denied by insurance companies across the country. When this happens, insurance providers withhold vital funds from deserving policyholders who, through no fault of their own, are unable to continue carrying out the duties of their jobs.
Receiving a denied claim for disability benefits can be distressing. Oftentimes, for those people who can no longer perform the duties of their job because of newly acquired injuries or illnesses, disability benefits are the only source of income available. And while all applicants whose claims for benefits were denied should have the opportunity to appeal their insurance company’s decision, doing so without proper assistance can seem like an overwhelming, expensive, and ultimately futile challenge.
However, our disability lawyers serving Shelburne have experience standing up to the unfair tactics often employed by insurance providers to justify withholding funds from deserving policyholders. Our Shelburne disability lawyers operate on a contingency-fee basis, which means that, if you are eligible to fight your insurance company’s unfair determination, Preszler Injury Lawyers will not require any payment from you unless we win your case.
By working with our disability lawyers serving Shelburne, you may be able to overturn your insurance provider’s decision and recover the compensation you deserve. In addition to fighting for the benefits you had been previously denied, by pursuing legal action against your insurer, our Shelburne disability lawyers may be able to recover compensation for damages you incurred as a result of your claim’s initial denial.
You may have access to disability benefits through your employer’s group insurance plan or through a privately held policy for which you pay monthly premiums independently. Not all insurance plans provide coverage for disability benefits to policyholders whose medical conditions make it impossible for them to return to work. However, if your insurance plan offers the appropriate level of coverage, disability benefits should provide you with between 60-70% of your regular earnings if a severe injury or a physical or mental illness prevents you from performing the duties of your job. While eligibility requirements for disability benefits differ between insurance policies, some medical conditions that might entitle you to collect benefits payments could include:
- Heart disease
- Back problems
- Chronic pain or complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
- Lupus or Lyme disease
- Psoriatic arthritis or fibromyalgia
- Bipolar mood disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- And possibly more
