Short-term disability (STD) coverage is intended to replace wages, in part, when the claimant is unable to work due to a temporary illness or following an accident. Due to the contracted timeline of filing a short-term disability claim, it’s especially important to seek guidance when filing a claim to meet filing deadlines and follow necessary procedures.
If you are planning to file a short-term disability (STD) claim, consulting with our disability attorneys early in the process can help you present a comprehensive file, providing insurers with less reason to deny your claim. If you file a claim that is denied, our legal team can challenge your denial.

Before applying, you must familiarize yourself with the details of your policy, including any filing deadlines and procedures. You must assemble medical records and physician statements, as well as completing forms that detail your disability, work experience, and job requirements. Our legal team can help you build a comprehensive claim.
