Crohn’s disease, though not particularly common, is among the most serious diseases out there, and even when treated, its effects can be enough to prevent a person from returning to work. Those with Crohn’s disease often suffer from a wide range of symptoms, including physical pain and discomfort, inflammation to their digestive tracts, significant weight loss, chronic fatigue, severe abdominal pain, and more. If you are someone who is currently suffering from Crohn’s disease, you are most likely now seeking long term disability benefits. Our nationwide long term disability attorneys are here to help. Please continue reading and contact our firm to learn more about what we can do for you. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How can long term disability insurance help me?
When someone is faced with the frightening truth that they are unable to return to work as a result of a serious injury or disability, there is a very good chance that they will look to go out on disability to help them recover the financial benefits they need until they reach retirement age. When you receive long term disability benefits, you will either receive one lump-sum payment, or you will receive monthly disability payments.
How do I know if I qualify for long term disability benefits?
To qualify for long term disability, you will have to follow several steps, and you must do so promptly, for waiting too long will most likely result in you losing out on the benefits to which you are entitled. The first step is hiring an experienced nationwide long term disability attorney. Once you do, you should speak with your employer or insurer to learn more about your insurance policy. Once you speak with either party, you will have to file your long term disability claim within 180 days. In your claim, you and your attorney will have to ensure that you include a wide array of valuable documentation that proves you are unable to return to work for the foreseeable future. For example, you should include MRI results, medical records, your medical history, and, perhaps most importantly, detailed doctor’s notes that clearly illustrate how your injury impacts your life and how you, therefore, are unable to return to work. As long as we can prove as much, you should receive the LTD benefits you deserve and need.
