Lawyers for Professionals Requiring Accommodations

Unlike other types of employment, professionals can often run their own business, regardless of whether they operate within a larger system like a hospital or operate their own clinic. This can bring higher financial rewards, but also significant stress and burnout. Whether a leave of absence is required due to stress, other health issues, or injury, sometimes they are simply required, and it is for this reason that most professionals carry long-term disability insurance.  

Many professionals have unique long-term disability policies that are more complex than the group policies found in more traditional employment situations. These policies are individualized and often tailored to a specific profession such as:

  • Dentists
  • Lawyers
  • Accountants
  • Physicians
  • Engineers
  • Accountants
  • Realtors
  • Architects
  • Lawyers 
  • Mortgage Brokers
  • Pharmacists


Due to the fact that professionals can be business owners or incorporated their long-term disability policies are often more complex, which can result in insurance companies having more opportunity to attempt to deny your claim. Professionals are often high-income earners which means the insurance companies face higher payouts for disability benefits, which further incentivizes insurers to try to deny claims when they can.  

The lawyers at Taylor & Blair LLP can assist you with all aspects of your leave of absence, including filing your initial claim for disability benefits, appealing denied claims, or litigating denied claims.

The lawyers at Taylor & Blair LLP can also support you during your return to work and ensure that whatever accommodations are required for your return to work or licensing issues that may arise during a leave of absence.
