What does a disability lawyer do?

On Behalf of | Nov 13, 2019 | Firm News

Generally, a disability lawyer helps clients get benefits from one or more of the following sources: Workers Compensation, Social Security Disability and Long Term Disability Insurance benefits purchased through a private policy of insurance usually governed by ERISA.

After determining the potential source of benefits, medical evidence must be obtained to demonstrate a disabling condition. The process usually does not stop here and further information regarding a client’s limitations, physical or mental is obtained.

After obtaining a clear picture of a client’s physical and mental limitation, the applicable limitations or problems must be viewed in terms of vocational limitations. Basically, how does the health problem and resulting limitation effect the client’s ability to work full time in a competitive job market?
