Brockville Long-Term Disability Lawyer
Many people living with a disability rely on support from their insurance provider in order to make ends meet. When faced with disabling medical conditions, including severe injuries, physical illnesses, or mental health disorders, many people find it impossible to carry out the tasks of their jobs as a result of their medical condition. Unable to perform their work-related duties through no fault of their own, people who can no longer earn their regular wages might be able to find some degree of financial relief through their insurance policy’s long-term disability (LTD) benefits.
If your insurance plan includes disability coverage, you might be eligible to collect LTD benefits if you have acquired a medical condition that prevents you from completing the tasks associated with your current occupation. LTD benefits do not replace a disabled employee’s entire salary. Instead, they supply recipients with between 60-70% of their normal earnings in monthly payment installments. For those struggling to support themselves and their families after being diagnosed with a disabling medical condition, LTD benefits may be the only stable source of income available to them.
Unfortunately, many insurance companies find reasons to deny claims for LTD benefits submitted by policyholders whose medical conditions legitimately prevent them from doing their jobs. Additionally, even people who have received LTD benefits could have their payments terminated by their insurance providers prematurely for reasons that can seem arbitrary and unfair. Often, insurance companies might cease making payments to qualified recipients of LTD benefits because:
- The policy’s definition of disability changed after 2 years of providing LTD payments
- The policy has time limitations for certain conditions
- The policyholder did not continue receiving medical treatment
- Surveillance investigations conducted by insurance companies found the policyholder engaging in questionable activities
- Videos, photos, and other social media posts shared by the policyholder are misconstrued or taken out of context by insurance companies
- And more
If your claim for LTD benefits was turned down even though your medical condition makes it impossible for you to continue working, our long-term disability lawyers serving Brockville may be able to help you appeal your insurance company’s unfair denial. Furthermore, if your monthly payments were terminated even though your medical condition still makes it impossible for you to return to work, our Brockville long-term disability lawyers may be able to provide you with critical legal assistance and advice.
