Suffering an unexpected tragedy or long-term illness that leaves you disabled can be stressful on a number of levels. While you or your close family member should be focusing on healing, more times than not a person is left trying to sort through and pay medical bills, make arrangements with their employer to salvage their job, and on the phone with the insurance company trying to figure out why one procedure or another wasn’t covered.
You shouldn’t have to face these issues alone. A Long Term Disability attorney with Young, Marr and Associates can take the load off your shoulders – so you can continue to focus on what’s really important – your health.

Disability insurance is a benefit generally found in an employer’s benefits package. Long term disability insurance covers a portion of an employee’s income, normally about 50%-70%, if the employee is injured or becomes seriously ill and cannot work – usually kicking in after a short term disability policy runs out. On average, short term policies end about 26 weeks after an eligible event. It’s also important to note that if you’re hurt off the job, worker’s compensation does not cover you, which is why long term disability coverage is so crucial. Depending on the company’s plan, long term coverage could be paid in full by you, the employer or the cost could be divided between you and the company.
