FEATURED ON THIS EPISODE…
► 2:12 – RECENT SUCCESS STORY – A father of four worked as a mechanic for 25 years. He experienced a back injury, and suffered from chronic pain and fibromyalgia. His long-term disability claim was denied due to a lack of proof, despite support from multiple doctors. Sivan explains why his appeal of the insurance company’s decision was a bad idea.
► 6:25 – A caller from http://www.employmenthour.com: I have been off work for 3 years. I was on long-term disability for 2 years before being cut off. I’m fighting to get my benefits reinstated. If my health improves at some point, does my employer have to take me back?
► 12:27 – email@example.com – When you take on a long term disability case, does your client need to continue communicating with the insurance adjuster? In other words, who communicates with the adjuster once you become the disabled person’s lawyer?
► TOP 3 Reasons Why You Should NOT Appeal a Disability Claim Denial
► 23:19 – http://www.mydisabilityquestions.com – I’m 48 years old and I put in an application for long term disability, and was denied last week because of “insufficient medical documentation”. What does that mean? My doctors confirmed that I can’t work because of a back condition and I’m scheduled for back surgery later this year. I’m not optimistic that I will be able to go back even if I get the surgery but should I wait to do the surgery before appealing this decision?
► 26:17 – firstname.lastname@example.org – I really like your show and have been watching for a few weeks. My brother was involved in a car crash 2 months ago. He tried to go on long term disability, but was denied. We have a lawyer but we can’t ever get a hold of him and we don’t even understand what the process is. All we know is that he said we have a case but no money is coming in. My brother obviously can’t go back to his old job at this point. What can we do?
