Mental Health Disabilities - Burke Harvey, LLC | Injury & Accident Lawyers in Birmingham, Alabama
Mental Disability Claims
Contrary to popular misconception, a mental health disability can be very debilitating, and is far more common that the average individual may believe. Symptoms of certain mental health issues are so debilitating that they may prevent the sufferer from being able to function in everyday situations. When simply getting out of bed can seem like a challenge, the prospect of working is simply unimaginable.
At the law firm of Burke Harvey, LLC, we understand the dramatic impact a mental health issue can have on your life. We also understand how difficult it can be to work while you are dealing with your mental health disability. You are not alone, however — with more than 50 years of combined experience, our mental health disability claims attorneys have the skill and knowledge needed to help you understand your options for obtaining financial support while you address your mental well-being.
We’ve Fought Battles against Insurance Companies – And Won
If your employer has offered you long term disability benefits, and you are unable to work due to a mental health disability, you may be entitled to financial support. Unfortunately, many insurance providers do not view mental disorders as disabilities. Many take a strong stance against granting benefits to individuals with mental disabilities simply because of the difficult nature of proving the disability exists, and prevents you from working. In other cases, the insurance company will place a limit on the length you may receive benefits as they claim that mental health disabilities have a statute of limitations of just two years.
In our years in practice, we have fought battles against insurance companies who have refused to honor their commitment to their clients. In many cases, we’ve been successful in helping our clients obtain the benefits they deserved while they were unable to work.
The experience we gained while addressing cases of a challenging nature allow us to help individuals who are prevented from working due to a wide range of mental health disabilities, including:
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Bipolar Disorder
