Short & Long Term Disability Claims
You are entitled to short-term disability benefits or long-term disability benefits if you cannot work due to an accident or disability.
Employers have different benefits packages for their employees who may get injured in an unfortunate incident and cannot work. The benefits will typically fall in the short-term or long-term categories offered by insurance providers in conjunction with your employer.
Insurance companies employ different tactics in attempts not to pay income replacement benefits. Some of the commonly used tactics include:
Claiming that the applicant has misrepresented some facts about their medical condition.
Claiming that the applicant can return to work.
Differing medical opinions from doctors hired by the insurance company. Some will say that your injuries have completely healed.
