The Legal Definition of a Disability

Los Angeles Disability Insurance Claims Lawyers

Having disability insurance is one thing. Having effective disability insurance is something else altogether. What is the difference?

The definition of disability. Many people think that there is a universal definition of disability. Unfortunately, when it comes to disability insurance policies, that is not the case. Different insurance companies define disability differently, and if your medical condition does not meet the definition of disability in your insurance policy, your claim will be denied.
