Do Not Let Your Insurance Threaten Your Claim
A stroke reduces or stops the blood supply to areas of your brain, causing the death of brain cells. This results in a victim of a stroke becoming disabled to varying degrees. Whether the stroke was a minor or major one, the consequences of it are devastating.
Even with such an apparent disability, stroke victims often find that earning disability benefits through their insurance isn’t as easy as they would expect. Because insurers want to make as much as money as possible, they often deny or cancel disability claims for strokes if they believe they have the grounds to do so.
Our lawyers at ERISA Law Center in Fresno, California, have spent over 35 years fighting insurance companies for our clients. We understand the claims process and know how to approach long-term disability (LTD) denials. Taking the time to get to know your unique situation helps us achieve the best possible outcome for you. We provide this personalized service to individuals throughout the country and are available to take your calls 24 hours a day, seven days of the week.
Results Of A Stroke
A stroke is a frightening experience that can leave an individual with serious physical or mental problems. Though the damage caused by a stroke can vary greatly, some of the common effects include:
- Affected movement and sensation
- Speech disorders
- Problems breathing
- Difficulty swallowing
- Trouble with balancing
- Impaired vision
Experiencing these changes after a stroke can be devastating. Many stroke victims find they need to undergo therapy or other treatments. Though therapy has been shown to benefit victims of a stroke, there is no assurance that an individual can ever completely recover. Therefore, it is so critical to secure the insurance benefits you deserve to help you move forward in the best way possible after a stroke.
