Seeking Disability Claims by Occupation
Accidents do happen, and they can happen at any time. Regardless of the nature of your job, you cannot claim to be fully protected from accidents. In law, your employer is duty-bound to offer you some cover against accidents that you might suffer while at work. Sadly, insurance companies and employers often collude to deny employees (claimants) their rightful due when they have been engaged in an accident.
Determining whether specific occupations are eligible for disability benefits can often times be complicated, but our team aims to simplify the situation for our clients. We break down the situation you may be dealing with and determine if disability is something that you qualify for in order to help you seek compensation and benefits to which you may be entitled.
Why Should You Hire a Disability Insurance Lawyer?
Disability insurance lawyers have the experience and skills needed to handle disability claim cases expeditiously. Further, these attorneys know how to deal with employers and disability insurers who have made it a habit to deny their employees what is rightfully theirs. Having such a knowledgeable and skilled professional by your side will ensure that you get paid what you rightfully deserve.
Another reason for having a disability attorney attending to your case is because you might not be in a position to represent yourself in court maybe due to the injuries that you suffered. Any accident that leads to a disability can subject the claimant to untold physical, emotional and financial strain and that is why, in our view, we advise that you should consider having a lawyer for legal counsel and representation.
Types of Damages You Can Claim
- The amount you are paid in disability benefits depends on the language in your disability insurance policy. Most disability policies pays about 60% of your monthly earnings before you stopped working.
- It is important to be aware that your disability insurance policy may also state that there is an “offset” for social security disability benefits. That means that any payments received by the Social Security Administration could reduce the amount you are being paid by your disability insurance company.
