You should be discussing with your doctor what you are physically able to do. It is not my job a Long Term Disability attorney to tell you what you should or should not do. That’s a medical issue.
However, disability claimants are like any other person. We all have responsibilities in our daily lives such as grocery shopping, taking children to school, going to doctor’s appointments and running errands. Many times Long Term Disability applicants will do those activities for a short period of and space those activities out during the course of a day or week so that they can rest in recovery.
The Long Term Disability carrier will attempt to justify your Long Term Disability claim’s denial on the basis that your daily activities are the equivalent of full time work. If the Long Term Disability carrier is questioning the restrictions and limitations of your disability and your activities of daily living you should immediately consult an experienced Long Term Disability claim’]s denied lawyer such as Nancy Cavey.
