Long-Term Disability Benefits
Policies of disability insurance exist to provide income security for individuals who become disabled and are unable to work.
Disability insurance contracts provide benefits to replace lost income in the event that an insured individual becomes disabled. The extent and nature of disability coverage in each case is governed by the terms of the insurance contract or policy. It is important to review the policy carefully, as every policy is unique. In all cases, Long Term Disability litigation is based on contract law principles, although insurance law and, at times, employment law principles may apply.
