Don’t Wait to Find a Short Term Disability Attorney

Chicago, September 28, 2015 Short term disability lawyers can expertly navigate your claims. The sooner you seek legal advice, the better the results will be. (

Disability benefits are an important and, in many cases, vital component to maintaining financial stability in the wake of a serious illness or injury. Seeking legal advice early on from a short term disability attorney for a seemingly straightforward policy claim could be the difference between getting approved and a long agonizing road to denial.

Many employees believe that their disability plans are direct and clear cut, but they don’t understand that from the moment a claim is filed, insurance companies have a team of experts seeking to minimalize their losses. These companies understand that the second you file a claim, your short term disability could lead into long term disability since your eligibility for long term disability benefits depends on the resolution of your short term disability claim. Their financial liability for a short term disability claim is limited, however, a long term disability claim is a completely different ball game financially.

Chicago’s experienced short term disability lawyer, Michael Bartolic and Michelle Roberts, can navigate your disability policy and get you the most out of your plan. Seeking legal counsel immediately when an issue arises is the best way to ensure you receive the benefits you were promised.

Insurance companies are preparing for battle the second a claim arises. Are you ready?
