You Can Take Action

Did your insurance company decide that you do not meet the stated disability criteria even though you had supporting medical reports from a doctor? This is a common problem faced by many injured people. An insurance company’s primary concern is to minimize its expenses, not to help you. That is why it is a good idea to have a Capital District long-term disability insurance attorney to represent your interests.

One thing that is common to all types of disability claims is that an enormous amount of documentation is required. We can review your insurance contract. Sometimes simply providing the correct information will resolve a problem. However, some insurance carrier disputes are more complex.

In some cases, the insurance company initially approves long-term disability payments but then discontinues or reduces them after 18 to 24 months. If this happens to you, contact an attorney right away. We can fight the decision, but there are timelines we must meet.

Other problems people have when applying for benefits include:

  • Being disabled from working in their occupation, but potentially able to work on a different job
  • Having residual effects from another illness or injury
  • Concerns about their prior work history
