    Hi Friends!

    I am getting ready to fill out my paperwork for private disability. I am wondering if I need attorney. My co-worker says probably not and another friend said only if it is long term diasability and it will be. Please let me know if you know anything about private disability. I don't want to ask attorney because I know the answer would be yes :)

    Thanks!
    Hope

    My DH has private disability, and because he saw how insurance companies treat people first-hand as a psychologist he expected the worst... so was very aggressive about getting a lawyer, we videotaped any exams by insurance requested physicals, etc. It worked quite well.

    I'm sure others have had little to no problem. But one never knows.

    I hope you don't have any problems... it is a shame that the game is to stress people out who hardly have the physical where=with=all to begin with to fight.

    all the best,
    Victoria
