Flight Attendants


Bartolic Law handles Long Term Disability cases at all stages, from filing a claim to lawsuits under ERISA § 502(a). We are who the most discerning clients hire when an insurer denies their claim, and the one they wish they had when another firm loses their appeal and abandons the case. We are Innovative, Authentic, Compassionate, Transparent and Chicago strong. Bartolic Law is nationally renowned for our Innovative work:

Flight attendants are responsible for various tasks as they provide a positive experience for passengers on an airplane.
If you’re a flight attendant, you’ve likely dreamed of such a career since you were young. Having that career taken away following a disability can be devastating.
When you’re disabled and unable to continue working as a flight attendant, don’t wait to file a disability claim.

Success With Disability Claims for Flight Attendants

Bartolic Law helps Flight Attendants get their long-term disability insurance benefits paid. No matter where you are in the process, we can help. Recently, a former flight attendant called us after an insurer terminated long-term disability benefits several years into paying the client. The timing coincided with when the client’s workers’ compensation benefits expired, thus increasing the disability insurance company’s required payment to the client. The client fully appealed the benefit termination, and needed to file a lawsuit. The client had severe spinal degeneration, underwent multiple spinal fusion surgeries, and still required maximal doses of narcotic pain medication to alleviate the pain. Multiple such surgeries also severely limited the client’s range of motion.

In court, we first had to battle the insurer to establish the true terms of the insurance coverage. Once we accomplished that, it changed the way the court would view the evidence in our client’s favor. We were then able to discredit the insurer’s medical opinion, resulting in victory for our client.

Many young children dream of flying the skies as a flight attendant when they grow up, and if you are fortunate enough to have this career opportunity, you likely get to travel and see the world as part of your job. However, all of that can be cut quite short if you develop a medical condition that causes a disability. Disabilities can impact a flight attendant’s ability to perform their job in many ways. Flight attendants must be physically able to meet the demands of the job, as well as mentally sharp to deal with any issues that arise onboard in the moment – all while keeping airline passengers safe.

If any of a flight attendant’s faculties are impacted, they might have to step away from their jobs for a period of time or even permanently. After learning you must leave your career and lose your livelihood, the last thing you need is to deal with the complex disability insurance claims process. Allow a Chicago disability insurance attorney to handle your claim from the start to help ensure a favorable outcome. If you receive a claim denial, we can appeal your case to the insurer on your behalf.
