short term disability benefits will be paid out
to you in the event an injury or illness occurs off the job.
Compensation benefits only apply to on the job or work related injuries
where your employer is covered by Compensation.
A: As the frequency and severity of disabilities and the cost of medical care rises, insurance companies face losses on disability policies. Some insurance companies may choose to ignore the law and do what they can to avoid paying on these policies whenever possible. It is our job at Share Lawyers to call insurance companies out on their bad faith practices and make sure our clients get the benefits they need.
A: Share Lawyers does not require a down payment or retainer from its short-term disability insurance clients. Our lawyers operate on a contingency fee basis, where all costs are covered up front by our firm, and the lawyer collects his or her fee only in the event of a recovery.
A: There are time limits to all claims and any delay in proceeding may be
subject to a deadline so you should not delay in proceeding with your
claim or obtaining legal advice to clarify these deadlines.
"I'm a definite "rookie" when it comes to lawyers and not always so trusting. At every point of my legal experience there was someone to not only guide me, but more important (to me) make me feel at ease and gave me the confidence to face the 'others'. You all were as good to me in the beginning as you were in the end and I thank you all."
