The cost of litigation is a widely held concern among both claimants and insurance companies. Insurers may use the specter of protracted litigation as a negotiation tool to reach lump sum settlements. Claimants who have been wrongfully denied may be discouraged about pursuing legal action against an insurer because they may believe that they could not afford an experienced attorney.
Neurological conditions like Multiple Sclerosis, brain injuries, migraine and stroke can be physically debilitating. However, neurological symptoms are often intermittent, appearing and disappearing in a flare-to-near normal cycle that is predictably unpredictable. This is not only frustrating for the person living with the condition, but can pose problems for those making disability claims based upon a neurological disorder.
There is a wide variety of injuries that can lead to people being unable to work. When people are unable to work, they often rely on a disability insurance policy to help replace lost income and help them support themselves and their family. One of the most common and most serious injuries that can trigger a disability claim is a spinal cord injury.
If multiple sclerosis is making work intolerable, it is important to know that you have options, including workplace accommodations and long-term disability care.
