Long Term Disability Archives

Pro athletes may face disability insurance claim fights

At our law firm, we represent professional athletes in their claims for disability insurance. Pro athletes are of course at higher risk than most people of serious work injury because of the dangerous nature of high-level athletic performance on a regular basis. Whether disability results from one severe mishap or accident in the course of a game, match or performance; from ongoing, repetitive motion or movement; or from something unrelated to sport participation, we advocate for our athlete-clients to recover their rightful disability insurance benefits.

Social-media surveillance of disability claimant’s activities

We recently posted information in this space about how disability insurers use surveillance to investigate the lifestyles of their disability claimants to try to uncover evidence that the claimants’ activities are inconsistent with the medical conditions underlying their disability claims. In other words, a video of a claimant mountain climbing might suggest they are not disabled from congestive heart failure.

At DI Law Group, we represent professional athletes in their claims for long-term disability insurance often based on debilitating mental or physical injuries. Obviously, professional sports are not gentle on bodies or brains and disabling injuries can prevent a pro athlete from continuing to earn a living in their sport. In severe cases, these injuries might keep them from working even in less strenuous jobs.

When Florida residents have a medical disability that keeps them from working, they often depend on their disability insurance to help them financially survive. Unfortunately, insurance companies sometimes refuse to pay, leaving people between a rock and a hard place. Such is the case with a Chicago man.
