Short Term Disability Claims
Do you need to go on medical leave from work? Let a short term disability attorney help you deal with your employer, doctors, and insurance company. You've got enough to deal with right now.
Short term disability insurance is usually an employer-provided benefit. Short term disability benefits may replace 50% to 100% of your income for 3 to 6 months.
Short term disability benefits may be available to you if you can no longer perform your job. Similar benefits like payroll practice plans or salary continuation plans may be available to you instead. Many short term disability insurance plans are part of the same plan as your long term disability coverage. That makes it even more important to engage a short term disability attorney to do things the right way.
