Aggressive Legal Representation For People With Long Term Disabilities

If you are suffering the lingering effects of a long term disability, it is important to know you are not alone. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states there are a variety of types of disabilities people can suffer, including those that can prevent you from performing certain tasks associated with your job, as well as those that impact your overall functioning. Your disability may have resulted from 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, impairments 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 impact your ability to work, in addition to presenting obstacles in your family life and in your ability to care for yourself.

Your Rights To Disability Benefits

In many long term disability cases, 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 govern claims related to employee benefit plans, such as pension and severance plans, as well as health and welfare benefits. Most of these benefits are paid through insurance company policies. Unfortunately, these companies have a tendency to either deny claims, or to assign benefits that are far less than what you actually need or deserve. As your rights under ERISA are extremely limited, it is vitally important to have highly qualified disability attorney on your side, fighting to preserve your rights and interests.
