Disability insurance programs are generally designed to provide employees with some level of income replacement in case of disability caused by on-the-job injuries or off-the-job health developments. Eligibility is often based on a number of factors, including duration of work, whether a worker is full time or part time, and the location of employment.
The attorneys at Seelig Law Offices represent workers through a wide range of services related to disability insurance. Disabilities come about in many ways, and however they develop, the repercussions for workers can be stressful and financially devastating.
Have you been injured on the job, been diagnosed with cancer or been sidelined from your job because of a chronic condition? Sometimes a case’s success hinges on proving critical details. We assist employees through the process of documenting their disabilities and asserting their eligibility for benefits.
If you have private or employer-provided disability insurance, you may encounter roadblocks when you try to get the benefits the insurance is supposed to provide. Our knowledgeable legal team can help you apply for benefits, testify in hearings, make legal demands and bring lawsuits when claims are denied or delayed.
Our attorneys are all well versed in disability insurance offerings and laws concerning access and eligibility. We have a deep understanding of state and federal programs, such as Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) that offer financial support on top of benefits from private or employer-provided disability insurance.
We understand application processes for all types of disability insurance. Our attorneys can explain your rights, evaluate your eligibility for benefits and direct you through the next steps beyond the initial claim or application. We can help with appeals in hearings or in a courtroom before a judge.
With more than 50 combined years of experience, including a strong track record in disability-related legal matters, we are ready to tackle your case and work to get you all benefits you are eligible for. Time and again, we have helped clients overcome obstacles to the financial relief they deserve through their rightful short-term and long-term disability insurance benefits.
