Long Term Disability
A Long-Term Disability Lawyer in Maine to Fight for You if Your Claim Was Denied
Serious illness or accidents can happen at any time to anyone. In some instances, the disability lasts only a relatively short period of time. Unfortunately in many, the disability is long-term or permanent.
Studies show that nearly 1 in 4 Americans will suffer a disabling condition in their lifetime. And while these unexpected hardships can interrupt your life and leave you out of work for months or even years, long-term disability benefits can pay up to 2/3rd of your income, giving you financial stability during a difficult time.
Many Mainers have long-term disability insurance coverage through their employers or have purchased individual disability insurance policies to protect lost income in the event of an unexpected injury or illness.
Individuals who file disability claims with their insurance companies often find the claim process overwhelming and difficult to manage especially when confronted with a wrongful denial of their claims. Many of our clients have faced this situation.
