Brain Injuries Associated With Disability Claims
If you have suffered a brain injury due to an accident, stroke, heart attack or other cause, your private disability income insurer may make it difficult for you to obtain the disability benefits you need if you are unable to work. Many insurance companies deny brain injury claims because the symptoms are sometimes impossible to prove through objective medical tests or because they mimic those of psychiatric conditions that are excluded under policy terms.
Insurance companies know that many symptoms of brain trauma do not appear for weeks or months, and the long-term effects of such injuries are difficult to understand and evaluate immediately after the injury. With this in mind, they may deny your claim for total disability and offer you only partial benefits while they wait to learn more about the long-term impact of your injury.
