Disability Insurance Claims for Pilots

20+ Years of Reliable Legal Service, Nationwide

Pilots must be in exceptional physical condition in order to safely operate their aircrafts. Before pilots are able to obtain their license, they must undergo thorough physical examinations and tests. While these standards may be especially high at the beginning of a pilot’s career, the need to remain healthy and fit never subsides. If you are a pilot and you have suffered any type of debilitating injury or illness that prevents you from performing the necessary tasks of your profession, you may qualify for long-term disability benefits.

At Dabdoub Law Firm, our lawyers understand the complexities of disability insurance. We know how frustrating it can be to attempt to handle insurance claims and denials on your own, which is why we want to help make the process easier for you. Our legal team can stand by you and offer legal guidance every step of the way as we help you fight for the disability benefits you deserve.

Potential Issues for Pilots

The work of a pilot is often inconsistent and can last very long hours. Pilots sometimes work on long flights, sometimes moving from one aircraft to the next, working for days back-to-back. These hours make it impractical for a pilot to be able to continue work with any sort of lasting condition. Pilots suffering from joint or bone problems, like arthritis or musculoskeletal conditions might find it hard to use the intricate controls needed to fly a plane or helicopter. Likewise, migraines and other neurological issues that might come on mid-flight can prove disastrous for those in the aircraft and on the ground.

Other issues, like those that affect a person’s equilibrium, or sleep disorders, gastrointestinal issues, kidney disease, or heart problems could also prevent a pilot from performing the job safely. Additionally, any sort of vision issue could be extremely dangerous for a pilot, including glaucoma or injuries directly to the eye. The mental well-being of the pilot is also very important, as any unpredictable issue could jeopardize the safety of a flight.

The Claims Process

If you are a pilot suffering from a disabling injury or illness, your disability insurance company will need proof of your issue in order to conduct an investigation. Our firm can help you gather the necessary evidence and fill out all relevant documents in order to give your claim the best chance at success. Next, the insurance company will evaluate the demands of your occupation and weight them against the issues related to your disability.

Let Our Firm Help You

In the event that your claim was wrongfully denied, our attorneys can also help you appeal that decision or file a lawsuit if your benefits were wrongfully terminated. Our goal is to work with our clients towards their long-term objective while protecting their interests and their health. If you need help claiming your long-term disability benefits, let our firm work on your side.
