If you’ve been denied short or long term disability, it can be as frustrating as it is frightening. However, it’s essential to understand that you’re not facing the end of the line, and you still have options, like hiring an expert disability lawyer to fight on your behalf.
A free consultation with a disability lawyer is an important first step in your journey to securing your disability benefits – these are more than benefits you simply need – you’ve paid for these benefits, and you deserve them. In this article, we’ll explain your rights, the legal process, and what to expect from a disability lawyer for a free consultation.
If your short or long term disability claim has been denied, our disability lawyers can help.

Here are the steps you can expect to take when you contact Share Lawyers for a disability lawyer free consultation.
1. Explaining the Disability Process
During your free consultation, our dedicated disability lawyers begin by helping you understand the claims process. They will provide information regarding the steps involved and the fees associated with our service, which you won’t pay until we win.
2. Understanding Your Situation
Our lawyers understand that everyone’s situation is unique, and we take this into account. We work with you to gather information about your physical and mental health, work history, and other vital details to help us assess the specifics of your case.
3. Answering Your Questions
Once we have a firm grasp of your situation, we begin answering all of your questions to ensure that we are the right fit for you. This is your chance to vet us by asking about similar cases, their success rates, and the strategy for handling your case.
This stage is crucial because it’s important to feel comfortable about your legal team during your disability claim journey.
4. Building Your Legal Team
When you decide to work with Share Lawyers, you will be assigned a team of three experienced disability lawyers–who will treat you with respect, compassion, and honesty– and fight your insurance company, not your employer, on your behalf.
5. Communicating With Your Insurance Company
When Share Lawyers represents you, we put them “on notice,” meaning that you no longer have to communicate with your insurance company, and we will handle all future interactions. This eases the burden and stress of dealing with your insurance company.
6. Countering Insurance Tactics
Share Lawyers is well-versed in the tactics insurance companies use to deny claims. At the end of the day, they profit when they don’t pay, and they’ll do whatever they can to avoid paying you what you deserve.
Thankfully, we have the knowledge and strategies to counter these tactics.
We will explain all of these factors to you in detail during your consultation. It’s also important to remember that the earlier you contact us for a consultation, the better.
That’s true even if you’re only considering applying for benefits.
