If you have faithfully paid premiums for private long-term disability insurance or if your employer has sponsored long-term disability insurance on your behalf, it is natural that you expect the insurer to fulfill the terms of the policy. If an illness or injury has resulted in disability and it is now clear that it is not a short-term situation but rather, a long-term condition that prevents you from working, you are right to assume that your long-term disability benefits will apply.
All too often, however, our law firm hears from clients and potential clients about insurers who put up roadblocks and delay or deny benefits. An insurer may claim that your disability falls outside the scope of what is covered under your policy. The insurer may demand more proof that you are unable to work. Insurers commonly deny disability claims for chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic back pain, chronic Lyme disease, irritable bowel syndrome and Crone's disease, and autoimmune disorders like lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis for lack of objective evidence of disability. Early stages of chronic degenerative conditions like Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis can be a problem. When the impairment is primarily cognitive deficits of the excuses the insurer has given you, Brown Paindiris & Scott, LLP, has most likely heard it before.
