Professional and Executive Disability Claims

  • A partner at a large regional law firm with a debilitating diagnosis.
  • A surgeon in a large medical practice who can no longer stand for the lengthy operations due to a degenerative disease.
  • An engineer involved in a serious accident that prevented him from returning to work.
  • An accountant who due to a debilitating medical condition, can no longer focus at the level required.
  • A nurse involved in the car accident who can no longer lift patients.
  • A physician who due to the treatments of his medical condition could no longer be exposed to patients in a clinical setting.

These are but a small sampling of the many unique cases we have handled on behalf of professionals.

 

For someone who has struggled through decades of education, to suddenly lose the ability to work in that occupation can be a traumatic event. We understand the needs of professionals and we represent them on a regular basis. Importantly, just as in every case, our team prides itself on being the most professional in the courtroom.

 

The complexities of these types of claims demand we be more focused and driven than the other side. The reason is simple, the larger the claim the more the insurance company will fight. Most of the time the insurance company will try to confuse the issues, or make the case seem so complex that it’s impossible to decide who’s right and wrong. We fight to undo all their defenses to your claim in the way that you would want someone to represent you.

 

To be a member of a profession usually means that you’re a type A personality. It also means you will be inclined to try to do the work yourself in handling your claim. Don’t. If you wouldn’t practice outside of your specialty before your disability, don’t start now.

 

Whether you’re trying to navigate a long term disability insurance company’s demands for proof of your condition or working to withdraw from the practice and business due to a disability, don’t go it alone. Over the course of the past two decades, we have worked with professionals to help them navigate the minefields that lay within withdrawing from a profession they love.

 

Our experience includes a focus on both group insurance benefits and individual disability insurance policies. You provided a safety net for you and your family in the event you needed it. Let us help make sure that safety net is not denied by the callous conduct of an insurance adjuster.
