When someone suffers from a long-term debilitating illness, injury, or accident, the average amount of time that they have to take off is almost three years; a significant amount of time in terms of financially taking care of themselves and their families.
Long-term disability insurance policies are purchased by employers and governed under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) in order to protect employees in the event of these circumstances; where workers’ compensation does not. However, these benefits can be difficult to obtain without the assistance of an experienced attorney who works on long-term disability benefits.
At the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara, we have devoted our entire practice to assisting our clients with obtaining long-term disability benefits. We provide free consultations with free case assessments and are not paid a dime unless you first receive the benefits you need. When it comes to ensuring that you file the best application possible, you have every reason to work with one of our experienced attorneys in order to file the best application possible.
If an applicant is successful, long-term disability is typically paid once that short-term disability runs out, which is usually between three to six months, and usually covers between 50 and 60% of one’s salary.
However, there are a number of hurdles to clear before you can qualify for long-term disability benefits, including the need to submit a significant amount of medical documentation and evidence and qualify for what the insurance policy considers to be a “disability” that is not a pre-existing condition. For example, while some policies will pay out benefits if the employee can not work in their particular job, others will require that that employee be unable to do any job in order to qualify.
Our attorneys answer any and all questions you have FREE OF CHARGE, and we also offer free comprehensive case reviews. We then handle your case on a contingency fee basis, which means that we do not receive any compensation unless and until you win and are paid your disability. Contact us today to find out more.

I would recommend Mr. Mcnanmara to anyone at any time. He was the best attorney that my family and I came in contact with. About three years ago we had a very tragic, accidental death in our family and the company knew that it was their fault but of course tried passing the buck. Mr.
