Did you know that mental illness is the leading cause of disability in the workplace? Despite many employers vowing to provide mental health resources, access to support remains scarce.
A disability claim is designed to provide the support you need during this difficult time so that you can focus on your well-being. But the road to claiming mental health disability benefits is paved with prejudice against the “invisibility” of psychological illnesses and their very real physical, emotional, and financial impacts.
At Zayouna Law Firm, your mental health matters. You need disability benefits to support your mental health journey — and we’re here to help you recover them. You should not suffer in further distress due to a denied disability claim.
Disability insurance is designed to provide income replacement when you cannot work, and allows for time and resources to focus on your well-being.
But disability insurance is not a perfect system. Instead of helping you cope with the impact of a mental health disability, it is challenging and overwhelming to navigate on your own. This limits your ability to access supports you are entitled to, and exacerbates your mental health struggles.
Insurance providers are quick to promise disability benefits, but slow to pay them out, if not deny a claim completely — especially for “invisible” illnesses that are difficult to prove, such as anxiety and depression.
A denied disability claim should not seal your fate. Our experienced depression and anxiety lawyers advocate for you through a lawsuit against your insurance provider. Taking legal action for this wrongful denial can resolve your disability claim, and ensure that your rightful disability benefits are paid out.
We can also help you seek damages for the added pain and suffering caused by a denied claim. With a successful mental health disability claim, you can finally ensure income replacement and access crucial mental health resources.
Mental health struggles can affect anyone at any point in their life. Traumatic events such as an accident, illness, the loss of a loved one, or workplace stress and harassment can trigger depression and anxiety.
Often, the resulting devastating emotional and mental burden affects your ability to perform daily activities and the duties of your employment, concentrate, and interact with people. If you were denied disability benefits, our lawyers can help you file a lawsuit based on these grounds:

The insurance claims process is highly detailed and dependent on exhaustive evidence. Insurers adhere strictly to the terms of a policy, and look closely at factors that can impact a claim, resulting in its denial.
Many insurance providers cite incomplete applications, a lack of medical evidence, and failure to be under the care of an appropriate physician in denial letters. A disability lawyer can examine and interpret these reasons, and in the process, advise you if you have a viable claim.
Yes, you can dispute the denial. You can appeal directly to the insurance company and commence a lawsuit for the denied disability benefits. It is in your best interest to consult a depression and anxiety lawyer as soon as you receive the denial letter. This helps ensure that your legal claim is filed within the limitation period and the claim is expedited.
An experienced lawyer can interpret your insurance policy and the denial letter and advise you on your best course of action, as well as your rights and obligations.
