Time is of the essence – Do not delay in filing your short term disability lawsuit. Here are some helpful tips:
Do not delay.
There are strict deadlines for filing a short term disability lawsuit. The insurance policy may limit this time period, as well as state law. Time is not your friend.
Do not be afraid of filing a lawsuit.
It’s your legal right. Yes, it may take time, but it’s the only way to obtain the short term disability insurance benefits you are owed. If you use an attorney, you can be involved as much or as little as you like. Your attorney should make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible.
Look for an experienced law firm.
Not every law firm has experience with short term disability insurance claims. Make sure the law firm you choose has experience in dealing with not only your short term disability claim, but also with your medical condition and your insurance company.
Look for a law firm willing to try your case.
Although the majority of short term disability lawsuits resolve prior to a trial or judgment, if your case does not, you need to make sure you have a law firm experienced in successfully pursuing a short term disability lawsuit to a final decision.
Location should not matter.
You should not limit your choice of an attorney based on whether they are located near you. The most important factor should be experience, followed by your comfort level. And with today’s technology, there’s no reason you can’t have both.
