Disability Insurance Claims with Specific Disabilities

Handled By Effective San Francisco Long Term Disability Lawyers

You would assume that your insurance provider would pay you your benefits when you become disabled. After all, you have likely been paying your premiums to your insurance provider for years. However, insurance companies routinely deny valid claims for any number of reasons. Sometimes, an insurance provider may claim that there is not enough evidence to prove that you suffer from a disabling condition. Our San Francisco long term disability attorneys can help you gather the necessary evidence to apply for benefits related to nearly any disability.

We have successfully fought for our clients suffering from the following disabilities, and more:

Spinal cord injuries - spinal cord damage or trauma caused by a serious injury can result in reduced mobility or feeling. The cord does not have to be severed for a loss of function. In many disability claims, the spinal cord will be intact, but cellular damage will have led to a loss of functioning.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) - after a serious head injury, the damage to the brain can result in various problems, including concussions, contusions, or hemorrhages within the brain. Diffuse injuries can also cause severe neurological defects.

Cerebral palsy - during birth or in the months following, permanent brain injuries can affect an infant. The results may involve limited motor skills, speech difficulties, and/or learning disabilities.

Muscular dystrophy - this is a genetic disorder where the muscles become very weak. Over time, the muscles break down and are replaced by fatty deposits.

Blindness - blindness is defined as the loss or absence of an ability to perceive visual images. It is considered to be disabling when an individual has less than one-tenth of his or her normal vision.

Deafness - from mild but significant loss of sensitivity to total hearing loss, this disability affects older adults the most. Children can also experience hearing loss from a disorder that affects infants and toddlers called otitis media. Other factors such as extreme noise, drug side effects, toxins, and genetic predispositions can cause severe disabilities.

Mental illness - alterations in mood, thinking, and behavior can be caused by distress or impaired functioning. Common disabilities that may impact your ability to work include depression and bipolar disorder.

  • $975,000 Aviation Death Settlement

He suffered several broken ribs, but that was the least of his injuries. Within several weeks of the accident, he had partially lost his sight. By working with medical experts, our firm was able to directly connect the sight loss to the injuries caused by the machine that rolled into our client. The case settled at Mediation without any need for a trial.
