Long Term Disability Claim Lawyers
When a severe illness or tragic event leads to a long-term injury or disability, it can have a significant impact on an individual’s way of living including their emotional and psychological health. Yet, for eligible persons, long-term disability benefits can help them live a more comfortable and enjoyable life.
In South Carolina, the process of obtaining long-term disability begins with processing an application or claim. Once submitted, a disability interview follows, during which the individual is asked a series of questions pertaining to their medical history, work history and injuries. A claims examiner reviews the disability claim and compares it to a set of requirements or conditions before it is approved or denied. As with Social Security disability requests, initial applications for long-term disability often end in denial. However, obtaining the expertise of an attorney prior to one’s disability interview can help dramatically.

Insurance companies deny long-term disability claims for a number of reasons, including inadequate medical documentation and evidence, or failure to meet disability standards per the insurance policy. Even so, some insurance companies employ teams of investigators to determine if individuals are, in fact, disabled. For instance, if video surveillance of an individual shows them performing activities that surpass limitations given by their doctor, their claim will be denied.
