Every application for long term disability benefits requires the consideration of an extensive list of factors. Disability cases are complicated and time-consuming. The interim period between application and award requires the strict observance of formalities, details, time limits, and other deadlines. The Sullivan Law Office provides over forty years of experience in all types of disability cases, including Social Security Disability, long-term disability, short-term disability, state retirement and workers’ compensation. But how do you know whether or not you should hire a long-term disability attorney, or any attorney for that matter?
If you choose to sail these legal waters alone, consider this: You will need to research and determine all of the requirements for filing a claim. You will have to interpret ambiguous provisions and details yourself. You may find intermittent answers to your questions but who will answer them, and answer them correctly, on a consistent basis? Too often here at the Sullivan Law Office, we have seen unrepresented applicants fail because they did completely understand a requirement, detail, or even the meaning of an important term or phrase.
Without an attorney, you sail unknown waters as the captain of your ship, all duties and responsibilities fall exclusively and entirely upon you. Hiring a long-term disability attorney is like hiring an experienced captain whose sailed the same waters countless times and knows them like the back of his hand. Hiring a long-term disability attorney provides you with your greatest chance for success. Not only should you hire a long-term disability lawyer, but the earlier you hire an attorney, the greater are your chances of reducing any pitfalls that may arise along the way. Hire an LTD lawyer as soon as possible after you become unable to work.
But long-term disability lawyers, like just about everything else, vary as to their level of knowledge and experience. While some will fight for you until the bitter end, others will easily give up or allow you to unknowingly make mistakes that could hurt your case. We’ve been representing long-term disability clients in Kentucky for over forty years. A single mistake during the application process could cost you your benefits.
