Dabdoub Law Firm focuses on representing people with claims for disability insurance benefits, disability appeals, and lawsuits for disability benefits. If you have an individual disability insurance policy and you are now disabled, it is important to know your rights under your disability policy and the law. Our disability lawyers have everything you need to accomplish your legal goals.
An individual disability insurance policy is meant to pay you a disability benefit if you cannot work because of a sickness or injury. Many individual disability policies are specific to your occupation, which means you are disabled if you cannot work in your “own occupation.” This is true even if you can work in another occupation.
Setting Yourself Up for Success
You must understand the terms of your disability policy, as well as your legal rights, when filing a claim for disability benefits. The initial disability forms you and your doctors are required to complete is only the first step in this process. The disability insurance company will use certain tactics to delay making a decision. It might ask for the same information over and over again, or even want to meet with you in person or send you for a medical examination with its hired doctors.
If the disability insurance company denied your claim for disability benefits, you can appeal. You can also bring a lawsuit against the disability insurance company. In many cases, you can only file the lawsuit after your disability appeal is denied.
The disability insurance lawyers at Dabdoub Law Firm have years of experience. We guide you through every stage of a disability claim. We can help with the application process, appeal the denial of disability benefits, and bring a lawsuit for disability benefits. If you are receiving disability benefits, we can negotiate a lump- sum settlement buy-out with your disability company.
