Cedar Rapids Long-Term Disability Lawyers
When you are injured on the job, filing a workers’ compensation claim can be a difficult, tedious chore that causes many people to simply give up and pay out of pocket for their injuries. Trying to file a claim for long-term disability (permanent partial disability and permanent total disability) can be nearly impossible without the assistance of an experienced workers’ compensation permanent disability lawyer.
Why Hire a Long-Term Disability Lawyer?
Because workers’ compensation insurance companies and most long-term disability insurance companies are private, they have far more leeway when it comes to denying claims. Unlike government-backed plans such as social security disability and SSI, the requirements are far less stringent and there is less oversight when a claim is denied. Furthermore, permanent partial disability and long-term disability claims are some of the most expensive cases for companies to pay for, providing a strong profit motive to deny or minimize coverage. All of these factors make it difficult to gain a permanent long-term disability coverage.
Trying to file a long-term disability claim (permanent partial disability and permanent total disability) without an experienced lawyer can be extremely challenging. Both your employer and your insurance company have lawyers who are experienced in finding loopholes, exploiting the law, and denying claims. Because of the cost associated with paying for a long-term disability claim, the investment is a worthwhile one for them.
