Lyme Disease LTD Lawyers

Helping Clients Nationwide Attain Needed Long Term Disability Benefits

Most commonly carried by deer ticks and black-legged ticks, Lyme disease is an infection caused by a germ called spirochete. Most victims are exposed to Lyme disease through a tick bite or through contact with infected animals. There are a number of factors why you would want to hire a Lyme disease disability claim lawyer. Lyme disease diagnoses are very difficult as the symptoms mirror those of many other conditions, making it challenging for doctors to determine the exact cause of your symptoms.

The symptoms of Lyme disease can be very painful and debilitating, and may prevent you from being able to work. Symptoms include:

  • Rash
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Joint soreness
  • Muscle pain
  • Irregular or slowed heartbeat
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Memory loss
  • Bell’s Palsy
  • Blurred vision

If any of the symptoms of Lyme disease prevent you from working, you may be entitled to receive long term disability benefits payments under your employer’s coverage plan. Our Lyme disease LTD attorneys offer detailed advice on the process of pursuing benefits when you are unable to work.

Working closely with you, we will guide you through the many steps in the claims and appeals process, including:

  • Obtaining documentation: Insurance companies require a great deal of information when considering your claim. We will help you gather all necessary documentation, including medical records, doctor’s notes or diagnosis, employment records and paystubs.
  • Filing your claim: Insurance companies purposely make claims forms difficult to understand and very vague in the hopes of preventing you from filing your claim. Our long term disability attorneys will help you understand every part of the claims form, and will file your disability claim in a manner that offers the best chances of being approved by your carrier.
  • Appealing a denied claim: If you receive notification that your disability claim has been denied, do not panic; many claims are denied by insurance companies looking to save money. We will help you understand the reasons for the denial, address any deficiencies or error in your claim and file your appeals as quickly and effectively as possible.
