When Evelyn’s disability insurance company told her that she wasn't sick enough to stop working, she turned to us. Our disability lawyers stepped in and took over communication with the insurance company, to fight for Evelyn’s rights. With our help, Evelyn was able to get the benefits she deserved and restart her life.
Common types of short term disability cases
There are a lot of injuries and illnesses that could render you unable to work in the short term. Sometimes those conditions lead to long term disabilities as well. Here are some types of disability claims we see often:
Many people experience mental health issues while on short term disability leave, such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, or extreme stress. These conditions can create additional obstacles to returning to work. While mental health claims do qualify you for short term disability benefits, insurance companies may try to deny your claim.
Pain from fibromyalgia can be debilitating but also very difficult to diagnose. Insurance companies may be quick to deny short term disability benefits in these cases due to a lack of documentation or refusal of work.
An acute injury can often lead to chronic pain, which can impact a person's ability to work and perform daily tasks. Insurance companies may initially approve a short-term disability claim for an acute injury, but if the pain persists and becomes chronic, the insurance company may deny the claim for continued benefits.
Disability claims for COVID 19 and Long COVID 19
If COVID-19 or Long COVID symptoms are preventing you from working, you may be eligible for short term disability benefits. However, insurance companies may deny your claim due to insufficient medical evidence, failure to meet the definition of disability, or pre-existing conditions.
Back pain is one of the most common reasons for disability claims as many injuries and conditions affect back health. It could be caused by a fall, or crash, or due to conditions such as spinal stenosis, bulging or ruptured discs, or arthritis. However, insurance companies frequently deny claims associated with back pain.
Migraines can severely impact one's ability to function, including their ability to work. Unfortunately, insurance companies often deny claims related to migraines due to various reasons such as insufficient medical evidence, failure to meet the definition of 'disability,' or suspicions of fraud or misrepresentation.
