Happy Independence Day from Coffman Law
Coffman Law is a litigation law firm in Tampa, Florida that handles cases which usually fall under the ERISA statute for short-term and long-term disability insurance policies. When someone works for an employer, they are sometimes offered multiple benefits such as health insurance, life insurance, dental insurance, and sometimes – disability insurance. The employee pays in to this disability insurance policy out of their paycheck every week (although some employers pay the premiums for them). Our clients come to us for help with filing their claim or to appeal a denial for a disability insurance claim. Often times, the policy states that the insurance company will pay a percentage of what the employee used to make while they are disabled and cannot work. Reasons for disability vary greatly, but most of our clients are dealing with long-term disabling conditions.
As we sit back and enjoy time with friends or family or even solo relaxation time this 4th of July holiday, and we celebrate the freedom of our country, keep the above mentioned reason for our business in mind should you find yourself at the wrong end of the fireworks, grill accident, pool accident, “hold my beer” moment, or the visiting in-laws. We’ll be here if the insurance company denies your claim.
Have a Safe and Happy Independence Day!
