Disability Insurance Law

Getting the benefits you paid for

When you bought your private disability insurance policy, you were probably perfectly healthy.  But when you need to make a disability insurance benefits claim on that policy, you are most likely dealing with serious medical and financial problems.  You need a firm of attorneys well-versed and highly experienced in employment and benefits law to help you deal with the insurance company and its lawyers.  We work with people every day offering our advice on qualifying for benefits and litigating lawsuits on behalf of those whose insurance or benefit claims have been denied. Here for you if you need a Illinois disability lawyer or a Social Security Disability lawyer in Illinois.

The law provides that the language used in insurance policies must be interpreted as the average consumer would understand it.  Some insurance companies insist on interpretations that only they can understand.  You do not have to put up with insurance company games or bad faith.  We level the playing field with your insurance company.

Successfully resolving your disability insurance claim

Insurance companies like to sell disability insurance policies by promising to pay if you are no longer able to work in your own occupation.  But when it comes time to make a claim, they tend to take a broad view of what your occupation is.  For example, they may suggest that a surgeon who can no longer stand could work as a medical researcher.  Or a professional athlete who can no longer play might be able to coach.  Our disability insurance attorneys work with our clients and employment experts to determine objectively what your occupation is and exactly what you can and cannot do.  As a result, we have helped many clients successfully resolve their cases through both negotiation and litigation.
