Success With Disability Claims for Registered Nurses

Bartolic Law has helped many Registered Nurses with getting long-term disability benefits paid. Whether you need to make a claim, appeal a denial, or file a lawsuit, we can help. In one case, a Registered Nurse battled Hepatitis induced Cirrhosis of the liver for years, having multiple liver transplants.

Following the most recent organ transplant, the client’s doctor restricted the client from returning to work, given the medications required were immunosuppressive, and a prior transplant failed. The insurer terminated long-term disability benefits because the client recovered from the procedure, but it disregarded the risk of returning to work and exposure to the public. Working with the client’s treating physician and the client’s family, were able to persuade the insurer of the high risk of yet another organ failure if the client were exposed to the public in a hospital setting.

Registered nurses provide patients in many medical environments with the care they need. This hands-on position is vital to the health care system, and RNs must be physically and mentally strong to perform their jobs. If a registered nurse develops a disability, they likely need to take time away from work – or possibly stop working altogether. You worked hard to become a registered nurse, and you should do the same to protect your finances if a disability keeps you from working. This means taking your disability insurance claim very seriously and seeking the right legal assistance.

Because you pay for your disability coverage, you likely assume that you will receive benefits as soon as you file your claim. The reality is that it can be much more complicated to obtain benefits than most people imagine. This is because the insurance company makes more profits the fewer benefits it pays, so it can make getting benefits a challenge. The upside is that there is help available in the form of a Chicago disability benefits attorney. Reach out for help with your claim so that you can focus on your health.
