Workplace Disability Benefits
Does your employer provide disability benefits? Short-Term or Long-Term Disability programs might be available to you through your workplace. Insurance companies administer and pay for claims they deem eligible under your employer's policy. It is not uncommon for the insurance company to terminate your disability benefits after some time, claiming that your medical condition has improved or medical evidence no longer indicates a disability. You have the right to appeal upon being denied benefits, but if your appeal is poorly prepared, there may be consequences. Don't wait until you've received your final denial and your right to appeal has been exhausted. Certain types of evidence are critical to bolstering the strength of your disability claim. If you have been denied or think a denial may be coming soon, call our office to schedule a consultation so we can review the matter and advise you regarding your appeal.
