  • I’ve been on LTD for 7 years and I’ve received a letter recently from my insurer asked me to fill out what functionality I have. Can my insurer force me to return to the job?
  • My insurer says my benefits will be cut off after 5 years as it is the maximum in my company policy. Can they do that?
  • What is an examination for discovery and is it typical in disability litigation?
  • Can I pursue a legal claim just with the insurer and not involve my employer?
