Short-Term Disability Attorney in Odessa, Texas
Issues with Insurance Companies
Short-term disability (STD) insurance replaces part or all of an employee's income in the event of a temporary disability, usually due to illness or injury. The employee must be unable to perform his or her normal work duties in order to qualify for these benefits. Receiving STD benefits allows the employee to avoid financial hardship during their recovery period while protecting the employer's investment in a valued employee and allowing them to pay for a temporary replacement without incurring additional labor costs.
In short-term disability cases, many insurance companies will attempt to lowball you to maximize their profit margins. If you qualify for short-term disability benefits but are having difficulty with your insurance company, it can create additional stress that complicates recovery on every level. An experienced short-term disability attorney can help you get the full benefits to which you are entitled.
I Can Help with Short-Term Disability Claims
I can handle your claim from the moment the insurance company says you do not qualify for short-term disability benefits. I will work with your doctors to obtain evidence and submit appeals through the insurance company’s administrative review process. I can also file suit in federal court under the Employee Retirement Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) if necessary and work to make sure you get your benefits.
