Finally meet with a private Disability attorney tomorrow

Postby blightcp » Fri May 02, 2014 4:41 am

I have finally found a disability attorney that is willing to take the case, I see him tomorrow with about 200 pages of information.

He is not super positive, but not totally against it either. It's a matter of reviewing the information. It is not as easy as a settlement.

Employer provided disability insurance is a scam :evil: , the insurance companies can deny you as long as they want as long as they don't make a mistake :evil: :evil: . And the law is on there side until they make a mistake big enough for you to push it to court :evil: :evil: :evil: . All you really can do is get your "team" together and keep shooting down the objections.

I'll be sure to let you know how goes.

Good Night.

I hope it went well for you! I do not know allot about employer disability but I do know more than I wish I knew about getting SSDI. It took me 1.5 years and that is considered very quick. Unless you're blind or lost a limb everyone is denied the first go around.For SSDI its an average of three appeals. But for me having a good SSDI attorney really got the ball moving faster. He was a rare breed. The case was resolved so fast. He refunded me 100% of what he was allowed to take. That blew me away. An honest lawyer that cared too!

Again I wish you the very best with your case. Let us know how it progresses. Cheers Tim

I totally agree, Blight. I personally had a very bad experience with private insurance carrier through my former employer a couple of years ago.
Just curious: Why are you pursuing this, instead of filing for SSDI?

Best,
