Long-Term Disability Claims
Experienced Representation and Dedicated Advocacy
If you have been disabled as a result of an accident or injury, you may be eligible for short or long term disability benefits depending on the nature of your disability. We at the law firm of Graves and Richard offer experienced and dedicated advocacy to those who have suffered permanent injuries. We will help you understand your rights and explore your options for obtaining disability benefits.
Short Term vs. Long Term Disability Benefits
Most disability benefits are payable through a group policy provided by your employer or through private insurance. Depending on the nature of your disability, you may be entitled to short term or long term disability. Short term disability generally covers the first three to six months of lost income after your accident. If your injuries persist or if they have become a permanent disability, you may then require long term disability benefits to help you maintain financial stability.
Handling Insurance Disputes
Disputes can arise as to whether your injury qualifies as a disability. Our lawyers at Graves and Richard have extensive experience handling all types of insurance claim disputes, including short term and long term disability. We will carefully review the terms of your policy along with your medical history. If necessary, we will arrange and evaluation through our network of independent medical specialists to determine the full extent of your disability. On your behalf we can negotiate with your insurance company to obtain all the benefits to which you may be entitled.
