Short/Long Term Disability

New York is one of the very few states requiring employers to provide disability benefits coverage to employees for an off-the-job injury or illness.  These benefits provide temporary benefits to eligible employees, when he/she is disabled by an off the job injury or illness.  Disability benefits, however, include weekly payments only, while medical care is the responsibility of the claimant.

At Chase Sensale, we recognize without the benefit of experienced attorneys, well versed in not only the Disability Benefits Law, developing case law, but also legislative trends, the claimant may not realize the full potential of their claim.  Let Chase Sensale recognize how and when to file a claim for disability benefits even when claiming your disabling condition is job-related.  The manner in which you file your claim may not only influence how quickly your claim for benefits is processed, moreover, may significantly impact your ability to immediately appeal any denial for benefits.  Chase Sensale will carefully explain the best methods for optimizing your claim for benefits.

Some employers offer long-term disability insurance benefits to their employees, and even if the employers do not, individuals may purchase their own long-term disability policies.  Let Chase Sensale assist you in distinguishing the differences between the various types of plans and policies, the potential for benefits, and preserving your rights to appeal should you be denied at any step in the application/appeal process.  At Chase Sensale, we remain dedicated to the prompt delivery of benefits through the not only immediate filing of these claims, but reviewing each and every document prior to submission to the insurance carrier.  Recognize the mistakes most often made during the application and appeal process and how to avoid these potentially devastating mistakes.  Not only does our staff stand ready to answer all of your questions and address all of your concerns throughout this application and appeal process, we will also be there for you when the insurance carrier decides to subject you to the dreaded continuing disability process.  Determine why the vocational expert may be your single greatest asset during the appeal process, who to hire, and why.

At Chase Sensale, we do not profess to have all the answers, however, with more than twenty-eight years of combined legal experience between the partners, we strive every single day to keep you informed, with access to your electronic file 24/7.  At Chase Sensale, our goal is to make the disability experience as pleasant as possible for you, the disabled individual.  Contact our office now for a no cost initial consultation.  After all, the time is now, and by calling Chase Sensale, you make the crucial decision to not go it alone.
