A Disability Lawyer May Be Able to Help You Fight Stall and Denial Tactics by the Insurance Companies
Unfortunately, getting the disability benefits you need is not always easy. Whether you are dealing with a private insurer or a state-run agency, you might find yourself facing several tactics aimed at devaluing or denying your long-term disability claim. A lawyer may be able to help you resolve many of the issues you might possibly run into when seeking long-term disability benefits. A lawyer may be able to:
- Read over your disability insurance policy and decipher any vague, complex, or confusing language for you
- File any documentation required for you to obtain benefits
- Speak with your medical caregivers to understand and obtain documentation for your disabling injuries
- Initiate any legal processes and handle all legal correspondence required to obtain your disability benefits
It can be very difficult for individuals to fight against tactics that insurance companies may deploy to avoid paying your benefits. We at Preszler Injury Lawyers are prepared for your insurance company to:
- Insist that you comply with thinly veiled stall tactics, such as an insistence that you receive a medical examination with its preferred physicians
- Deploy lawyers in the hopes that you eventually succumb and abandon your disability claim
- Throw a slew of complicated, intimidating paperwork at you in the further hope that you abandon your claim
- Deny, stall, and deny your benefits, hoping that you do not have the legal acumen to counter these attempts at withholding your benefits
We are familiar with these tactics and know-how to counter them. We want to handle this aspect of obtaining disability benefits on your behalf so that you may focus on recovery. If your claim has been denied or you are facing push-back from your insurance company, a disability lawyer may be of great help.
