Insurance Claim Denial Lawyers for Loss of Vision

One of the more common forms of disability are vision disorders. However, insurance companies will often fight hard against long-term disability claims if you don’t suffer a total loss of vision.  The reality is that even a partial vision loss can be disabling to a person, even if an insurance company refuses to recognize it.

Reasons for Vision Loss

There are many ways vision loss can occur, including:

  • Eye Injury
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Glaucoma
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Cataracts

Most people only think of individuals who suffer a total loss of vision when they think of a disability resulting from vision loss.  However, the definition of “legally blind” does not require a total loss of vision.

As to whether or not your loss of vision will result in you being disabled as per the terms of your long-term disability policy, this will depend on the severity of your vision loss, the medical evidence and the particulars of what you do for a job.  The lawyers at Taylor & Blair LLP have the experience to assist individuals to determine if their visual loss would entitle them to long-term disability benefits under their policy of insurance.
