Long Term Disability Attorney Dallas

Life is hard enough when you are living paycheck to paycheck. Imagine the stress you will face when you can not receive a paycheck because you were injured and are now unable to work for a long time.

This is a situation many Americans face. Anyone of any age can become disabled. Of today’s 20-year-olds, 25% will become disabled before they retire. A car crash or other serious accident can change someone’s life in an instant. You may be fine one moment and unable to move moments later.

The good news is that many people have long term disability policies to cover them in such cases. Perhaps you have one through your employer or you bought one on your own.

The bad news is that insurance companies often fail to pay up. They do so for no good reason. Even if your claim is valid, you could still face a denial. Many long term disability plans are employer plans, which means they are governed under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). This means that each plan must establish a claims processing procedure. Also, if a claim has been denied, plans are required to provide reasoning for the denial to the participant.

Appealing a denied claim can be a complex and confusing process. Many people simply give up. Without income, they lose their home and face bankruptcy.

Others seek legal help. A long term disability lawyer can help you with your claim and fight the insurance company so you get the benefits you desperately need during this time.

What Does Disability Insurance do?

In a nutshell, disability insurance pays you a portion of your salary while you are disabled and unable to work. Short-term disability will cover you for three to six months. After that time, long term disability will take effect. You will receive payments based on a percentage of your salary—typically 50-60%. You will get paid until you return to work or for a certain period of time, based on the guidelines set forth in your policy. In some cases, you may receive payments until you are 65 years old.

Your insurer will work with your employer to get you back to work quickly since the insurer saves money when you get better and return to work. If you can return to work, but only partially, the insurer will determine whether or not to continue paying your benefits. It will depend on the type of work you can do and the wages involved.
