Long Term Disability Lawyer Tampa, Florida
Although life can be cruel sometimes when tragedy strikes, there are systems in place that can help mitigate the cost. Medical incidents that cause disabilities are both costly and difficult for all those afflicted by them, both physically and financially. On the financial front, the Social Security program was established in America to help those suffering difficulty from disabilities. Likewise, many insurance companies offer long-term disability insurance, which is designed to still dispense regular income in the event that a person can no longer work. Sometimes, even when necessary, the government and companies do not dispense these funds and reject applications to them, which is when an attorney needs to step in to help fight to ensure that these rights are granted.
Generally speaking, a long-term disability is one in which the effects of it last longer than a year or would result in the death of the afflicted individual. In order for one to be considered valid to a court of law, as well as the agencies that determine Social Security or insurance benefits, the disability must be well-documented and proven to meet these criteria. Usually this is done through doctor’s notifications and medical records, so it is always a good idea to keep copies of these records at the ready when applying for either one of these benefits.
Note that even though Social Security and long-term disability insurance both dispense funds separately, an individual can collect both at the same time. That being said, it can be difficult for an individual to be accepted by the Social Security Administration if there is already income coming in from another source. Sometimes there is a need for both however, the medical malady requires a lot of expensive treatment, such as cancer.
Therefore, even if the application is denied, there is still hope to win the necessary benefits.
