Many employers or individual workers purchase short-term disability and long-term disability policies. Although the federal government provides disability benefits when an individual has reached appropriate standards, disability claims are often the sole protection for a severely injured or disabled individual. These claims can often result in complicated forms, medical treatment, and court resolution. Mediators can provide assistance in resolving disputes in many of these disability claims prior to costly delay in receiving much needed benefits that are often life changing without them. Whether disability benefits are due or not, prompt resolution benefits all.
