Denial of a long-term disability claim
In some cases, an insurance company will review the facts surrounding your injury or illness and agree that you require disability benefits. Unfortunately, in most cases, they will not be so quick to pay. Common grounds an insurance company could use to deny a claim include:
- The injury or illness does not qualify as a “disability”
- You have not provided enough documentation to prove your injury exists
- You failed to file your claim promptly
- Your pre-existing condition is barred under your insurance policy
The good news is a denial of your claim does not mean you missed your shot at recovering disability benefits. Following a denial, you have the right to appeal the decision. Kamloops disability lawyers will compile your documentation and medical records to build the strongest possible case on appeal.
How Preszler Law can help
There are many benefits of working with a long term disability lawyer. Your lawyer could provide critical guidance early on in your claim. For example, your lawyer could warn you of taking a medical exam with an insurance company’s doctor. Any doctor paid for by them could be biased, so it is not in your best interest to use them.
A lawyer can also explain the complicated areas of your insurance policy. The language of your policy is important, as a seemingly unimportant phrase or sentence could have a tremendous impact on your claim.
We can also review your case and evaluate it. Through our experience, we can give you an estimate of your chances of success. While we can never guarantee a positive outcome, we will work tirelessly to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
