At Zayouna Law Firm, we value and seek to protect mental health. Our lawyers understand the impact of mood disorders and mental health conditions on your ability to function, perform daily activities, and work.
We are here for you when systems designed to protect you — such as long-term disability insurance — fail to do so. We can help you seek action for denied disability claims, and compensation for your suffering. Don’t suffer in silence any longer.
Did you know that mental health disorders are the leading cause of workplace disability claims? Unlike physical impairments that are visible and easy to diagnose, major depression and bipolar disorder are “invisible”, often manifesting in feelings of sadness and hopelessness, and resulting in underperformance and inability to work.
In the aftermath of a traumatic event, such as an illness, loss of a loved one, accident, or workplace harassment and stress, productivity should be the last thing on your mind. You need proper support and understanding from those around you and the systems designed to protect you.
Long-term disability insurance is designed to help replace your income if you cannot work due to bipolar or mood disorder. Following your diagnosis, your insurance provider should pay out these benefits, allowing you to focus on your mental health. Insurers are widely known to dispute these claims and minimize the amount of benefits they disburse.

A mental health disability claim allows you to fight your insurer’s decision, and reclaim the benefits you are entitled to, along with compensation for the undue pain and suffering they have caused you. A letter of denial should not seal your fate and prevent you from regaining your well-being and quality of life.

You can dispute a denial by appealing the insurance company’s decision or commencing a lawsuit. Taking court action allows you to file for compensation for the benefits you were denied, and the losses you have suffered since then, such as the added financial strain from a lack of income replacement.
An experienced disability lawyer can first look at the denial letter to interpret the reasons for the denial and help determine your best course of action. They can help compile extensive medical documentation to prove the eligibility of your diagnosis and the treatments you have been undergoing.
