Pennsylvania Long-Term Disability Attorneys
Workplace injuries remain a serious problem in the United States, even as the rate of workplace accidents has decreased in recent years. Most workplace injuries are only temporary in effect, allowing workers to return to their jobs in a relatively short amount of time. However, in some instances, a workplace injury may be so serious that it causes an individual to become disabled for a significant period of time.
If you or someone you love has become disabled and cannot return to work for the foreseeable future because of a workplace injury, you may be eligible for long-term disability benefits through your employer. Contact the Pennsylvania disability attorneys of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., at to speak with an experienced legal professional about the details of your case and learn more about your rights and options under the law.
Long-Term Disability Benefits
In most cases, long-term disability benefits are available for workplace injuries that require more than 90 days of recovery away from work. The duration of benefit availability and amount payable can vary depending on your employer’s plan, with some common forms of benefits including:
- Payments in the amount of 50-60% of income
- Payments for 2-5 or 5-10 years
- Payments until the individual reaches age 65
Unfortunately, it can be difficult in some instances to obtain these benefits, even if your case clearly qualifies. For this reason, it is typically beneficial to seek qualified legal assistance in this difficult time.
If you have suffered an injury which has rendered you unable to work for a significant period of time, you may qualify for long-term disability benefits. Contact the Pennsylvania personal injury lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., by calling today.
