Short term and long term disability insurance policies provide peace of mind to individuals. Often disability insurance companies deny disability claims on the basis that there is insufficient medical evidence to support the claim. Sometimes disability benefits are terminated after two years when the test for total disability changes.

About Disability Law
Disability insurance, often provided through an employer’s group policy or personal insurance, is meant to provide a financial safety net that helps replace your income if an illness or injury prevents you from working. It’s important to understand that insurance companies are in the business of generating profits for shareholders. As such, they often erect roadblocks meant to discourage claimants from pursuing legitimate claims. At Kotak Law, our practice focuses on helping clients receive short-term and long-term disability compensation when their ability to work has been impacted by illness, injury or disease. We have extensive experience in resolving disability claims.
An experienced disability lawyer can help you gather the medical evidence you may need to establish that you do, in fact, meet the definition of total disability as set out in your insurance policy. Following your instructions, we also negotiate with insurance companies to get you not only benefits that were owed to you in the past but also money for future benefit payments.
