Challenges Faced by Individuals Pursuing Disability Insurance Claims

When facing a serious illness or injury that prevents you from working, long-term disability insurance is designed to provide financial support. However, obtaining these benefits can be challenging, as many claims are initially denied. The process can be overwhelming and emotionally draining, leaving individuals feeling hopeless and frustrated.

The Complexities of Disability Insurance Law

Disability insurance law is intricate, involving detailed policy provisions and strict procedural requirements. Insurance companies often deny claims on technical grounds, such as incomplete documentation or missed deadlines, rather than the merit of the claim itself. Navigating this complex landscape without legal representation can significantly reduce your chances of a successful outcome.

Types of Disabilities Covered

At Monahan Tucker Law, we handle a wide range of disability claims, including but not limited to:

  • Systemic Musculoskeletal and Orthopedic Disorders
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Neurological Disorders and Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular Conditions
  • Mental Health Conditions

Each of these conditions requires meticulous documentation and a thorough understanding of both medical and legal standards to ensure a claim is successful.

Legal Procedure for Obtaining Disability Insurance

The process of obtaining disability insurance involves several critical steps:

  1. Obtain Doctor Support of Disability: Documentation from a healthcare provider is essential.
  2. File Disability Claim with Insurer: Submit your claim with all required forms and documentation.
  3. Insurer Denies Claim or Terminates Benefits: Many initial claims are denied due to technical issues.
  4. Attorney Prepares Appeal: Gather new medical and vocational evidence to support your appeal.
  5. Insurer Overturns Denial: If successful, benefits are reinstated.
  6. Insurer Maintains Denial: If the denial is upheld, further legal action may be necessary.
  7. Attorney Files Complaint in Court: Litigation may result in a settlement or judgment.
