Eye Problems Resulting in Disability Insurance Claim

The disability insurance lawyers at Dell & Schaefer are experienced in representing clients whose eye disease or disorder caused them to miss work, or become unable to work. We understand how significantly eye disease limits your abilities to earn a living. In many cases a claimant’s eye condition is a chronic degenerative condition. Disability companies will often argue that a person has been working with their vision limitation and therefore should be able to continue working. We often deal with the argument of what legally blind means in order for a person to be considered presumptively disabled. The disability company will also make unreasonable arguments about accommodations that should be made in order for the claimant to continue working with limited vision. In order to give you the best chance of collecting shor tor long term disability benefits, we work closely with your treating physicians and medical professionals who are experts in the their fields.

Call us for a free initial consultation to discuss your disability claim. One of our lawyers will speak with you immediately.

Anonymous:

Hello, I have had low vision since birth (lets say 20/200 in both eyes after correction). A combination of cataracts and aniridia. I don’t consider either “degenerative”. I have managed a reasonably successful career. What, if anything, could I look for in a disability insurance policy that would cover me in case my eyes were to worsen from some other disease, glaucoma for example? I am 47. Is this possible, or would this be too nuanced for the insurer re “preexisting conditions”?

Attorney Stephen Jessup:

Anonymous,

With respect to purchasing a private disability insurance policy, you will need to consult with an agent to determine what your options would be in purchasing a policy that would suit your needs.
