Bellevue residents like you have lost money in some way due to an injury or illness. In some cases, these physical issues may eventually heal or clear up, allowing you to return to the work you had been doing before. In others, however, your abilities are permanently altered. The LePley Law Firm is here to help in cases where you no longer have the earning power you once did.
Long-term disability is a blanket term used to refer to any injury or ailment that permanently changes your ability to support yourself. This could mean an incident where you hurt your back and become paralyzed. It could mean decreased cardio-pulmonary function due to toxic exposure in the workplace and related illnesses. What differentiates these issues from short-term disabilities is the duration. Long-term disabilities can last months, years, or even for the rest of your life.
Because of the duration, you are likely going to wrack up some hefty medical bills. Not only that, but you may not be able to do the work you did before. You may not be able to work at all. For that reason, many people in your situation seek financial compensation. Fortunately, disability benefits are available for people with long-term disabilities or chronic issues as well.
