  • Personal injury law firm – VerkhovetsLaw
    If you’re battling an insurance provider over long-term disability (LTD) benefits, our Burlington long-term disability lawyers have four words for you: “Be sure to read the fine print.” Or, better yet, you focus on your own well-being, and we’ll bring out the magnifying glass. We understand how aggravating it is; you either paid for your insurance through your employer or on your own. Then it became even worse. You require the replacement income, but the insurer refuses to provide it. Contact us!
