Indianapolis Disability Lawyer Practice Areas
No matter how old you are, how healthy you are, and how safety-conscious you may be, disability is a very real danger. Statistics show that approximately 3 in 10 workers entering the workforce today will become disabled before reaching retirement age, and 1 in 7 will experience periods of disability lasting five years or more.
If you become disabled and unable to work, the Hankey Law Office is here to help you claim the disability benefits to which you are entitled. Whether your disability is due to injury, disease, or other medical conditions, our experienced Indianapolis disability lawyers can help you with:
- Long-term Disability Benefits
- Short-term Disability Benefits
- Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
- Disability/Injury Representation
The Impact of Disability
At the Hankey Law Office, our Indianapolis disability lawyers understand that disability is a physical, emotional, and financial ordeal. Not only will you have to deal with the pain and loss of independence caused by a debilitating injury or illness, but your finances will have to bear the heavy burden of unexpected medical bills at the same that you experience a sudden loss of income.
Not surprisingly, statistics show that disability results in over 350,000 personal bankruptcy filings each year and is the root cause of half of all mortgage foreclosures.
It is clear that the importance of disability benefits – whether from an employer, a third-party insurer, or social security – cannot be underestimated. Unfortunately, claiming these benefits is far from simple; the majority of applicants are initially denied benefits for any number of reasons, some which are valid, and others which are not.
Your chances of successfully getting disability benefits increase dramatically with legal representation. An experienced Indianapolis disability attorney can assist you throughout the entire process of claiming your benefits, from the initial filing to any appeals or litigation which may be required. If you are unable to work due to a physical or mental disability, contact the Hankey Law Office at (317) 634-8565 today.
