The lawyers at Aaron Waxman & Associates are experienced with Disability, Personal Injury and Employment claims.
Long-term disability claims may come as a result of a person being unable to work due to physical injury or illness or psychological illness. Claims for psychological illnesses include anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and other types of mood disorders. Mood disorders include bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
It is important during any type of long-term disability claim to remember that your insurance company is looking for medical evidence of how and why your illness or injury prevents you from working during the adjudication of your claim.
What type of medical evidence is your insurance company looking for when assessing your claim?
As psychological illnesses are considered to be “invisible illnesses”, there are no x-rays or blood tests to provide your insurance company with. This is why it is very important that you have documentation of your symptoms and treatment, as it is how you will show your insurance company how your illness affects your functioning and ability to work.
If you or someone you know have been denied long-term disability benefits for any reason, you can contact our office for a free no obligation consultation with a licensed lawyer. A consultation can be arranged at a date and time that is convenient for you.
