Back Pain is Among the Most Common of LTD Claims
Back and spine problems rank among the most common reasons individuals file for long term disability benefits. Unfortunately, a large percentage of back pain claims are initially denied by the insurance companies on the basis that there is little objective evidence supporting the claim; more than 75 percent of back pain sufferers present no visible abnormalities or conditions, making it difficult for doctors to diagnose the underlying cause, even with the benefit of an MRI scan or x-ray.
Our experience handling LTD claims relating to back and spine problems allows us to help you understand the process of filing a successful claim or appealing a denied disability claim. We know what information the insurance company will demand of you, and have learned successful strategies for obtaining and providing the key evidence required of you. We will work closely with you and your doctor to satisfy your insurance company’s requirements, and will provide detailed advice on every step in the claims and appeals process.
