Professional Legal Representation For People With Long Term Disabilities

There are a variety of types of disabilities that can significantly impact your ability to work or even to enjoy hobbies and activities with family members and friends. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states these disabilities can affect physical abilities, as well as having an impact on your cognitive skills. Long terms disabilities may be the result of an accidental injury, such as a car accident or a slip and fall, or may be related to a medical condition you suffer, such as cancer, heart disease, respiratory illness, or other types of medical disorders. According to the CDC, the types of impairments you could be suffering 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.

Either of the above can significantly impact your ability to work, threatening your financial security both now and in the years to come.  

Your Rights To Disability Benefits

If you have been employed in the private sector, your rights to benefits are likely 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, in addition to health and welfare benefits. These types of benefits are generally paid through your employer’s insurance company policy. Unfortunately, these companies have a tendency to either undervalue claims, or to deny benefits out right. Under the ERISA, your rights are extremely limited, making it vitally important to have a qualified disability attorney acting on your behalf, ensuring your best interests are protected.
