Chiropractor Disability Claims
Chiropractors become chiropractors to help others, but it is also how they make their living. Most chiropractors pay significant premiums for disability insurance policies to insure against an inability to continue to practice due to a disabling injury or illness. Our firm, Disability Insurance Law Group, has a reputation for meticulous preparation of disability insurance claims and aggressive representation of chiropractors. This reputation is known and respected by insurance companies and their attorneys.
How Chiropractors Get Injured on the Job
Chiropractors are one of the types of doctors with the highest rate of disability insurance claims. Given the physically and psychologically demanding nature of the profession focused on treating patients, perhaps it should come as no surprise. Further, the number one cause of disability internationally is back pain. Considering the significant bending, stooping, pushing, pulling and lifting required of a chiropractor each day, it may also not come as a surprise that many chiropractors sustain low back injuries that ultimately disable them from the profession of chiropractic. Any number of physical or psychiatric medical conditions can cause a chiropractor’s career to end, because they can easily interfere with a chiropractor’s ability to fulfill the high physical and psychological demands of the profession to safely treat patients.
The Disability Insurance Company Looks Closely at Your Claim
Chiropractors who purchased private disability insurance coverage to protect themselves and their families from devastating financial loss when disabling illness or injury strikes are further distraught when their disability insurance company denies their valid claim. A chiropractor’s disability insurance claim is an expensive liability, and thus it is highly scrutinized and often fiercely litigated by disability insurance carriers who promised to pay benefits in the event of disability under the policy.
Understanding deceptive insurance carrier tactics, confusing insurance policy terms and the information needed to prove disability is critical to the prompt and successful resolution of a chiropractor’s disability insurance claim. Our attorneys are well-versed in the nuances involved in successfully maneuvering the disability claims minefield for many types of professionals, including chiropractors.
