Success With Disability Claims for Human Resources Professionals

Bartolic Law helps Human Resources Professionals when they face the very obstacles they often see other employees face with long-term disability claims. We have worked with clients in making an initial claim, appealing a denied claim, or even litigating a long-term disability denial. Human Resources Professionals are often ambitious, and continue working a long time through illnesses that eventually become disabling. In one case, a client was a Director of Human Resources and worked for years until symptoms of numerous conditions caused too much impairment to the client’s ability to meet the physical and cognitive demands of the work. The client tried numerous forms of treatment, but eventually the treatment could not sufficiently control the symptoms. The insurer denied the claim, using the client’s own will to work for years with the illnesses against the client, arguing the client’s condition had not sufficiently worsened. We used a multi-faceted approach, combining medical evidence, medical opinions, objective functional capacity testing, and image evidence. In the end, we were able to recover for the client.

Human resources professionals have multi-faceted jobs – they keep employment on track for companies, including payroll and benefits, as well as fielding and addressing employee complaints when they arise. HR professionals are integral to businesses with numerous employees, and the job can be demanding. If you are a human resources professional and you develop a disability that keeps you out of work, you are naturally worried about your future. If you cannot earn your income, how will you support yourself? This is when you need to turn to your disability insurance coverage.

HR representatives regularly handle concerns from employees regarding disability insurance, but when it comes to your own claim, you still might face an uphill battle when it comes to getting benefits. Insurance companies try to deny claims whenever possible, and they might challenge your disability and your inability to work. You need an advocate on your side who can fight for the benefits you are entitled to under your insurance policy. Let a Chicago disability insurance lawyer help in this situation.
