Medical Conditions that Qualify for Long Term Disability

Our law firm has obtained short and long term disability (LTD) benefits for clients with a wide range of different medical conditions and health issues. While some people think that injuries resulting from acute accidents are the only qualifying conditions, in reality, there are many different psychological, physical, and medical conditions that could potentially qualify an applicant for disability coverage under their insurance policy. Are you wondering if you might you be eligible for short or long term disability benefits? We are here to get you the answers you deserve. The medical conditions that may qualify you include, but are not limited to:

Again, you may be eligible for short or long term disability benefits even if your condition isn’t listed above. Not only do many other conditions qualify, but a combination of medical conditions also can qualify. To find out more about your specific case, please do not hesitate to contact The Law Offices of Nancy L. Cavey. We can determine if your medical condition or combination of conditions qualifies you for benefits under the terms of your disability policy.

You Need a Proper Medical Diagnosis

One of the keys to obtaining successful results in the long-term disability claims process is being able to present strong, well-documented supporting medical evidence. To get access to the full and fair disability benefits that are available under your insurance policy, you must have a proper medical diagnosis from a qualified physician.

Insurance companies will look for ‘gaps’ in your claim. Unfortunately, they will exploit the fact that there is a minor error in your file or you have some missing documentation. Even relatively small issues can result in delays or outright rejections. If your medical records do not adequately demonstrate the extent or effects of your disability or condition, it may be difficult to get full benefits. Our St. Petersburg, FL long-term disability lawyer can help to ensure that all of your medical evidence is in proper order.  

Medical Conditions Must Be Connected to Psychological/Physical Impairments

As the non-exhaustive list on this page shows, there are many different conditions that can potentially qualify an applicant for long-term disability benefits. In fact, there are so many that it would be almost impossible to list them all. Yet, unfortunately, people who have qualifying conditions sometimes struggle to get their long-term disability claim approved.

One of the issues that many applicants run into in the disability claims process is that the insurance company does not accept the link between their underlying condition — which may qualify for benefits, at least in the abstract — and the actual psychological/physical impairment that is preventing them from returning to work on a full-time basis.

We will help you establish this link. Our long-term disability attorney has the skills and experience required to make sure that these connections are supported by comprehensive medical evidence and connected with a strong, persuasive legal argument.

What You Need to Know About Limited Coverage or Pay Period

Many disability policies have limited pay periods as short as two years for mental nervous conditions, subjective conditions like migraines, or certain diagnoses like fibromyalgia. It is crucial that you understand any limits of your coverage before you apply. This is something Nancy Cavey can help you better understand. During your free, no risk consultation, our legal team will make sure that you understand the full implications of your disability policy. This will give you all of the information you need to move forward in the process in the most efficient and effective manner.
