Long-term disability insurance is a type of coverage that provides a financial safeguard for employees who suffer from long-term disabilities or illnesses. It does not cover injuries or illnesses that workers suffered while on the job and for which employees could file a worker's compensation claim.

If you have been injured at work, you may be eligible for long-term disability insurance. Unlike workers' compensation benefits, these benefits must be offered by your employer, and not all employers offer the same plan. For those who are self-employed, it may be a good idea to buy LTD coverage in case you are hurt during the course of a job.

If you have sustained an injury that was caused by another person’s wrongful behavior, you may be entitled to a financial settlement or compensation. A trustworthy personal injury lawyer can help determine if you can win damages in court, though there are certain facts you must prove to obtain a favorable result. Likewise, you need to keep the statute of limitations in mind. In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations for filing a civil action for a personal injury is three years from the date of the injury. But like all statutes, this one is full of nuances, and only an experienced attorney who speaks with you directly about the facts and circumstances of your case can tell you the specific date by which you must file any claim in court.

A common question that individuals who were injured on their job is whether they qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, or if they would even be eligible for any benefits at all. Workers who can show that they sustained a work-related injury that has incapacitated them from work should seek workers’ compensation benefits. Employees who have short and/or long term disability insurance policies may be eligible under the policy for monthly benefits regardless of whether the injury or illness is work related. Employees who become disabled from any gainful employment may be eligible to apply for and obtain social security disability benefits.
