Long-Term Disability Benefits
A person who can no longer perform any gainful work as the result of a workplace injury may be entitled to long-term disability benefits through a disability program purchased by the individual. Whether the worker qualifies for permanent total disability benefits involves numerous factors such as age, education, training, and the nature and extent of the injury. If the person cannot work at all for a temporary but indeterminate period of time, he or she may be eligible for short-term disability benefits.

Get An Experienced Advocate On Your Side
If you are collecting long-term disability benefits, you are required to pursue a Social Security Disability claim.
Your insurance carrier may offer to provide a lawyer to help you obtain Social Security Disability benefits. While it is not unethical for the insurer to offer this service, it does present conflict-of-interest concerns. It is in the interests of the insurance carrier to get you onto the Social Security Disability rolls, but it may not be in your best interest. You should seriously consider getting an independent lawyer who will place your interests above those of the insurance company. Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler can handle your case, seeking the best possible result for you.
