We will work with you throughout the claim filing process.

Our costs and fees come out of the amount recovered from your insurance carrier.

 

Can I file a disability claim if I am still working? 

Typically, you must stop working or dramatically reduce your working hours to qualify for disability benefits. However, depending on your disability and the language of your policy, you might be able to continue working and still be eligible for partial disability benefits. 

Depending on your disability, you may not be able to perform the duties of your original occupation, but  you may be able to take on a new job that accommodates your disability. In such cases, due to your inability to continue in your original role, you may still qualify for benefits while you continue working.  It is crucial that, if you continue to work at a different job, you only complete work that you are capable and comfortable doing. Your disability claim for benefits is contingent upon your inability to perform the duties required of your original job. 

We are here to help.

At Donahue & Horrow LLP, we understand that your disability is likely causing you financial and emotional hardships. We are here to take on the burden of managing your long-term disability insurance claim for you to ensure you can focus on your recovery.
