Peterborough Long-Term Disability Lawyer


Receiving a denied claim for long-term disability (LTD) benefits can be an overwhelming, frightening experience. People who cannot perform the duties of their jobs because of a severe injury, chronic illness, or mental health disorder often have limited financial options. If their employer’s group insurance plan or a private insurance policy they pay for themselves includes coverage for LTD benefits, seriously injured or ill policyholders who cannot return to work might rely entirely on their insurance payments to support themselves and their families.

Unfortunately, each year, insurance providers across the country deny more than half of the claims for LTD benefitssubmitted by their policyholders. By doing so, they might be withholding an eligible claimant’s only source of income to help them weather a challenging and difficult storm.

Insurance providers can deny an applicant’s claim for LTD benefits for a number of reasons. Common examples of reasons for turning down a policyholder’s claim include:

  • Insufficient supporting medical evidence was included in the application
  • Claim was filed late, past requisite deadlines
  • There is no objective evidence of disability (often the case with “invisible” injuries or illnesses)
  • The medical condition does not meet the insurance policy’s definition of “disability”
  • The policy includes contractual stipulations (often excluding pre-existing conditions) that disqualify a claimant’s application
  • The claimant refused to undergo an independent medical examination (IME)
  • And more

Any policyholder whose claim for LTD benefits is not approved should have the opportunity to appeal their insurance provider’s decision in an attempt to overturn their initial denial. However, for people undergoing prolonged treatment for an ongoing, disabling medical condition who might not be familiar with insurance companies or the tactics they use, standing up for what they are rightfully owed can feel like an impossible (and expensive) challenge.
