Long-Term Disability: The Perils of Going It Alone


We currently live in what may be looked back upon as the golden age of DIY (do-it-yourself). From people fixing their vehicles with the help of YouTube videos to people taking on home renovations inspired by their favorite program on HGTV, people from all walks of life are diving in to DIY.

There are many virtues to DIY. Tackling projects can save money, test your skills, and result in personal growth. However, there is one DIY development in recent years that is troubling due to the serious consequences of coming up short of success: DIY legal representation.

When someone decides to handle their own legal issue due to a sense of confidence derived from binge-watching Law & Order or as a means of protecting their budget, the outcome can be devastating.

For people pursuing long-term disability benefits, a failed attempt at DIY can result in going without the benefits they need to care for their family and maintain their quality of life.

Long-Term Disability Claims Must Be Handled Properly The First Time

A long-term disability claim is not like attempting to finish the drywall in your home. You can always do some extra sanding and mix up some more mud for your drywall but, if your long-term disability claim is denied and you are not successful upon appeal, you will be left without the benefits you need.

You Do Not Have The Benefit of Experience

The disadvantage of DIY when it comes to legal matters is that you don’t know what you don’t know. There are many skilled attorneys who struggle with the complexity of insurance policies and dealing with cunning insurance companies.
