Types of Trends
Working so intensively in the area of long-term disability and denied claims, our firm stays current on many of the recent decisions and emerging trends in this area of the law. There are numerous types of trends that are now facing disability claimants, often making it more difficult for them to obtain the disability benefits that they deserve. These trends include:
- Lack of objective evidence of the condition
- Exclusionary language written into the policies
- Insurers using psychological and neurological testing to exclude benefits under mental limitations
- Using functional capacity exams/independent medical exams with so-called “independent” doctors who are basically writing reports, when the doctor’s income is derived from the insurance company
Regardless of these trends or their impact on your specific situation, our firm handles each case on an individual basis. We take the time to assess your situation, provide you with options and move forward in a way that protects your interests, needs and goals.
