Professional Legal Representation For People With Long Term Disabilities

Long term disabilities can make performing even the simplest tasks difficult to manage. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that there are a variety of different types of disabilities, all of which could impact your physical abilities as well as your cognitive functioning. These disabilities may have occurred as the result of an injury, such as in a car accident or slip and fall, or they may be due to the damaging effects of an illness or chronic condition, such as cancer, heart disease, respiratory illness, or other types of medical disorders. According to the CDC, impairments as the result of long term disabilities generally fall into one of the following categories:

  • Structural impairments, such as those resulting from the loss of a limb or other body part, loss of sight or hearing, and memory loss;
  • Functional impairments, such as chronic pain, weakness, or paralysis in a certain area of the body which can prevent you from performing certain tasks, including injuries and illnesses that affect your problem solving abilities.

These types of impairments can impact your ability to work, while threatening your financial security, now and in the years to come.  

Your Rights To Disability Benefits

For those employed in the private sector, your rights to benefits are covered under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, otherwise known as ERISA. As outlined by the U.S. Department of Labor, ERISA laws relate to employee benefit plans, such as pension and severance plans, as well as health and welfare benefits, most of which are paid through insurance company policies. Unfortunately, insurance companies frequently undervalue claims, or may attempt to deny your claims altogether. Your rights under ERISA are extremely limited, making it vitally important to obtain legal help from a knowledgeable, experienced disability attorney.
