You never thought that you would be in a position to hire a disability lawyer. You’ve seen disability law firms advertise through the years, but were never entirely sure what they did besides fight for sick people. As a healthy individual, you knew these services existed but never expected to use them yourself. Even when you first became ill, you were hoping that it was only a temporary situation and that you would soon be back to full health and returning to work.
When your medical issues began to increase, you quickly realized that you may be looking at a longer recovery. Your doctor mentioned that you may want to consider applying for long-term disability benefits to support you financially during your recovery, and your employer confirmed that you did have coverage for benefits if your application was successful. Despite the stress and exhaustion of your illness, you put all your energy into completing the mountain of paperwork from the insurance company, compiling all of your medical records and test results, and answering every last question that they asked.
Needless to say it was like a punch in the gut when your insurance company denied your application for benefits. You know how ill you are, and your doctor and employer both agree – why is the insurance company making this process so difficult? You briefly consider trying to appeal your benefits denial on your own, but the process seems daunting. You are already exhausted from dealing with your illness; the process of trying to take on a massive insurance company seems like a battle that you could not possibly win on your own.
You do, however, remember some of those ads that you had seen for disability lawyers. There were television commercials that promoted a firm’s past success, or that tried to provide comfort by insisting you would not pay any fees unless you won your case. Your brain suddenly fills with past slogans and jingles of disability lawyers, but you have no clue how to choose the right firm to represent you.
Suddenly you remember a coworker from a few years ago speaking about their experience with Share Lawyers. You recall hearing great things about their approach, so you conduct your own online research. You learn that they have been long term disability lawyers for over three decades, and that they have no fear about taking on the big ‘faceless’ insurance companies.
You also find their website, which goes a long way towards making you feel more comfortable. You’re able to ask questions directly about how the process works, and find easy-to-understand answers within their blog and other materials. Even before picking up the phone, you could tell that you would be in experienced hands who would be well-trained to handle your case.
When you do meet with a lawyer from Share Lawyers, you are even more impressed.
