When our law firm’s long-term disability (LTD) insurance attorneys see what is happening with those whose COVID-19 symptoms continue longer than a month, they know that there is a good chance that long-term disability claims will be denied. Because of this, we developed the COVID Long Haulers Legal Resource Center to help provide answers and solutions to a new, undefined medical issue.
In fact, the symptoms that Long haulers are experiencing match many of the same disabling symptoms of those living with autoimmune diseases such as ME/CFS, Dysautonomia, POTS, and more.
Since the symptoms dovetail, we are confident that the inevitable problems and denials with the long-term disability insurance providers will follow suit.
“I don’t have to be Nostradamus to see what the insurance companies are going to do,” says Managing Partner Glenn Kantor. “This is why our attorneys are ready to help individuals, their families, and caregivers be as prepared as they can be to work through the process of getting the LTD benefits they deserve.”
The firm has been working with patient groups, physicians, and associations such as the Long COVID Alliance, and others to gather, compile and maintain the Longhaulers Legal Resource Center.
This resource includes:
- Tips for Applying for Long Term Disability Benefits
- Articles, research, and blog posts
- Our Guidebook to the Insurance Claims and Appeals Process
- A recording of a webinar where the panel answered more than 100 questions about disability insurance
- Links to research and support groups
Most of all, we know what COVID Longhaulers are going through, and what to expect when they file for the long-term disability benefits they deserve.
As Glenn Kantor puts it: “We’ve been there, we’ve fought the insurance companies, and we’ve won.”
If you or someone you know has lived with COVID-19 symptoms for more than a month and has been denied benefits, please contact Kantor & Kantor or use our online contact form for a free consultation.
