Professional Legal Representation For People With Long Term Disabilities

Long term disabilities can have a significant impact on every area of your life. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that there are numerous types of disabilities which can affect both your physical as well as your mental functioning. These disabilities may occur as the result of an accidental injury, such as a car accident or a slip and fall, or due to a medical condition you suffer from, such as cancer, heart disease, respiratory illness, or other types of medical disorders. The CDC states that these 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.

These types of impairments can affect your ability to perform tasks that are a central part of your job, while also affecting your overall ability to provide for yourself and engage in activities with family members and loved ones.  

Your Rights To Disability Benefits

If you work in the private sector, your rights to long term disability benefits are likely to be 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 concern claims related to employee benefit plans, such as pension and severance plans, in addition to health and welfare benefits. These types of benefits are often paid through your employer’s insurance company. Unfortunately, insurance companies often a have a tendency to either undervalue these claims, or to deny them altogether. Under the ERISA, your rights are extremely limited in these types of matter, making it vitally important to have an experienced, professional disability attorney on your side, assisting you in getting the benefits you deserve.
