Video Summary

  • In a long-term disability case, the recovery options are limited under the law.
  • The main thing that can be recovered is the back benefits, the amount owed before a successful appeal.
  • Recurring payments of benefits in the future are generally not guaranteed after a successful appeal.
  • In some rare cases, attorneys' fees can be recovered, but not pain and suffering or punitive damages.
  • Consulting an experienced long-term disability benefits attorney is crucial for maximizing chances of having benefits reinstated.
