If you have had an accident and suffered a permanent injury, you may be eligible for short- or long-term disability benefits. At Harris Law, our lawyers are experienced and dedicated to advocating for those you have suffered a disability.
Generally, short-term disability benefits cover the first three to six months of lost income after an accident. If you continue to suffer from your disability, or if it becomes permanent, you may then need long-term disability benefits. Most people have these benefits through group insurance provided by their employer or if they have a private policy.
Sometimes insurance companies will try to dispute your claim that your injuries qualify as a disability. The personal injury lawyers at Harris Law will carefully review your insurance polecat and arrange a medical evaluation with independent specialists to determine the extent of your disability. We have extensive experience with all kinds of insurance disputes, and we will negotiate with your insurance company so you receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled.
