Self-employed individuals such as lawyers, CPAs, CEOs, doctors, and other professionals buy individual disability income policies to protect their income if they cannot work because of a disability. Disability income policies can provide a monthly disability benefit up to age 65, retirement age, or for a lifetime. Our self-employed disability attorneys focus solely on representing people with disability insurance claims. We are familiar with the disability claim practices of all the major disability insurance companies in the United States.
Should I Hire a Disability Insurance Lawyer?
Individual disability income claims can be complicated and insurance companies often try to drag out the claim review process. If you have a disability insurance claim, you should know what to expect and how to respond to requests for information. If your disability claim is denied, you may have the option of appealing the denial decision.
Insurance companies such as MetLife, UNUM, Principal, Northwestern Mutual, and Mass Mutual will conduct a thorough investigation when a disability insurance claim is submitted. Past earnings, medical records, and the opinions of treating physicians are only some of the information disability insurance companies will ask for during a disability claim review. The disability insurance company may want an in-person interview or even demand a medical examination with its own doctor.
Speak with an experienced disability attorney early in the claims process. This can help avoid mistakes and improve your chances of getting the claim approved.
