Can I Get LTD Benefits if I Have a Herniated Disk?

Have you developed a medical condition or sustained an injury that is currently preventing you from returning to work, and will prevent you from returning for the foreseeable future? If so, you should strongly consider reaching out to an experienced nationwide long term disability attorney as soon as you can. One of the most common ailments that prevent people from returning to work is herniated disks. If you have a herniated disk, you are most likely often subjected to severe pain, making it difficult to move your body in certain ways. In many cases, this can impact a person’s ability to return to work, and if you find yourself in this situation, you must read on and speak with our firm to learn more about LTD benefits and how we can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if my herniated disk qualifies for LTD benefits?

As you may know, it is not enough to simply apply for long term disability benefits. In many cases, insurance companies will look to deny benefits to those who need them, as their primary concern is their bottom line. However, if you can prove through medical documentation, doctor’s notes, and more, that your herniated disk compromises a nerve root and causes serious, distributed pain and that pain causes a loss or significant reduction in motor function or impairs your sensory abilities, you should be granted LTD benefits. As long as you can prove that you truly qualify for LTD benefits, you should receive either a one lump-sum insurance payment or monthly insurance payments to help you and your family financially while you are unable to collect a paycheck. Our firm is here to present your case effectively and fight for the benefits you deserve

When can I start receiving disability?

Typically, a person who qualifies for LTD benefits will receive their first payment within 90 days of qualifying. Unfortunately, for others, it may take longer to receive their first payment. Our firm can work to speed up the process, but since LTD matters are so time-sensitive, the sooner you speak with our firm, the better. We are prepared to assist you through every step of the LTD process today.
