Success With Disability Claims for Executive Assistants

Bartolic Law helps Executive Assistants secure their long-term disability insurance rights, whether through guidance in making the claim, appealing an insurer’s denial, or even litigating the denial. In one case, the client contacted us after having a claim denied based on the client’s Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, causing pain in the client’s extremities. The insurer’s medical director contended the client had no time for concurrent testing to substantiate the symptoms. We demonstrated the client had multiple sets of imaging and manual muscle testing pre-dating the medical director’s review, deflating the medical director’s opinion’s reliability. We also used a functional capacity evaluation to objectively demonstrate the extent to which the client’s pain caused limitations. In the end, we recovered for the client.

Many people start as administrative assistants, and when their high-quality work is noticed and appreciated by executives, they might get promoted to the position of executive assistant. While this can be a lucrative position, it can also be a demanding one. Executives often make many immediate and complicated demands of their assistants, and a good executive assistant will know how to handle each situation that arises with efficiency. Because of the demands of this job, many physical and mental disabilities can hinder your ability to continue in this type of stressful role.

You might suffer a disabling condition and realize that you are no longer able to work, leading to great concern over how you will pay your bills. Not only are you dealing with a disability and disruption in your life, but you also have to deal with your disability insurance company. You might expect the process to go smoothly, but, in reality, many people struggle to get a positive outcome and start receiving benefits. It is best to let a Chicago disability lawyer assist with the claim or appeal process.
