You Need a Long Term Disability Attorney to Focus on Your Appeal
Many executives, physicians and lawyers who are now disabled due to a medical condition and can't work will be denied long term disability benefits under their employer's policy or one they purchased on their own.
And many successful people think, despite their medical condition and disability, that they can win a long term disability appeal on their own.
This is usually a mistake - you don't know what you're getting in to and you really only get one shot at this. If you lose your long term disability appeal you won't get past due disability benefits, ongoing disability benefits or future disability benefits unless you later file a federal lawsuit and have a federal judge reverse the denial of benefits. Problem is, that decision will be based on the administrative record, which is primarily the appeal and supplemental evidence you filed.
Don't Leave Your Long Term Disability Appeal To Chance
Long-term disability insurance can be a lifeline to those who need it most. They are the source of income for those who can't work due to a serious medical condition or accident.
However, if you don't have sufficient legal help or not enough information for your case, you'll be likely to lose your appeal. That comes with the greatest risk of not getting your benefits at all. Court cases are a scary thing to go through alone or with a lawyer that can't do you justice. That's where we step in. We understand you need your benefits as a means of being able to live and we are ready to help you stand up to the insurance company.
At Donahoe Kearney, our experienced long term disability lawyers win insurance benefits for people who need them. Our lawyers have years of trial experience and handling medical evidence. However, be prepared to share with our lawyers documents such as policies, denial letters, or any other insurance information. Medical evidence is just as important because it shows proof of inury. Items such as MRIs and test results count as medical evidence. Appeals can only happen once and doing it with the right choice of legal help and substantial amounts of evidence can strengthen the appeal. You don't have to feel like your appeal wasn't worth it. You will have someone properly representing you.
