What Does a Disability Lawyer Do Anyway?

insurance claims lawyers

Did you purchase long-term disability (LTD) insurance to protect you in case you couldn’t work? Or do you have LTD benefits through your group benefits at work? Was your claim for long-term disability denied? You are not alone. 


If you have been denied a claim for long-term disability benefits, you may feel frustrated and helpless and not know where to turn. This is when disability lawyers can help you. 


Do not be afraid that disability lawyers will be too expensive and that you will not be able to afford one. When you contact one of the disability lawyers  at Share Lawyers, your initial consultation is free. That’s right: there are no fees until we settle your claim. We know you are dealing with pain and worry from your illness or injury. We also realize you may also be under great financial stress because you can’t work. You may even be worried about how your lack of income will affect your ability to pay your bills.


This is why we do not ask our clients to provide us with any financial compensation at the beginning of your case. There is no cost to hire a disability lawyer and there are no fees or down payments when we agree to take your case. We cover all the costs upfront and we only get paid if we recover money for you. This called a contingency fee. ‘


Contingency fees mean that your payment of legal fees to the long-term is contingent or dependent on our success: the recovery of your compensation or long-term disability benefits. In many cases, the insurance company will contribute towards part of your legal costs, thus helping to cover some of the legal fees that your case incurs. 


We calculate our fees based on a percentage of the total amount recovered. You can rest assured that the percentage applicable to your case will be discussed in detail before we start and will be explained in writing in our retainer agreement. This means there will be no surprises when we conclude the case. 


This is the Share Lawyers Guarantee. The long-term disability insurance lawyers at Share Lawyers have been winning disability cases for people with serious illnesses and injuries since 1987. This means you can have faith in our experience and expertise.
