Long Term Disability Claim’s Denied Video Tape and Your Treating Physician
If the Long Term Disability carrier is thinking about denying your claim for disability benefits they may put surveillance on you. If you claim that you have difficulty bending, stooping and lifting and investigators obtain videotape of you washing your car, bending and polishing or wiping your car dry. You have a problem.
You haven’t been truthful with either the Long Term Disability carrier or your physician.
The Long Term Disability carrier will provide your doctor with a copy of the videotape and ask them to comment on whether or not your physician still feels that you are disabled.
Needless to say, your physician will not be happy.
It isn’t to say that all surveillance tapes are going to be detrimental to your case. If you are being truthful with your doctor about your activities and have discussed with your doctor what they think you are capable of, doing any surveillance should come as a surprise.
If you believe a Long Term Disability carrier has surveillance on you or is contacting your physician, you are being set up for a Long Term Disability claim’s denial. Florida based disability denied lawyer Nancy Cavey is familiar with the Long Term Disability carrier’s use and abuse of surveillance in attempts to deny legitimate claims for disability benefits.
