Long Term Disability
Long term disability claims should be pursued by employees who become disabled while they are covered under a long term disability plan. If your claim is denied you will need a lawyer to contest your long-term disability benefits denial. Unfortunately, many denials go uncontested because individuals are not aware of their right to pursue lawsuits to contest their denials. Often long term disability benefits are approved for a period of time and then denied based on a “change in definition” under the long term disability benefits policy. These denials may presume that you are capable of returning to a job that you are not able to perform or that is not suitable based on your education and experience. It is very important that you consult with a long-term disability benefits lawyer at Thomson Rogers once your claim is denied as there are strict timelines for pursuing long-term disability benefits claims.
