Types of Cases
If you are disabled due to an injury or medical condition, there may be many legal issues you will need to deal with.
For example, you may be entitled to short-term disability or long-term disability benefits from your Disability Insurance carrier under the Employees Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (which is often known as ERISA).
Additionally, it is possible that you may be entitled to social security disability benefits as well.

Extensive Court Experience
On occasion, it is necessary to take a case to court to get clients the benefits they are entitled to. Ms. Henry’s extensive courtroom experience will allow her to be an effective advocate for you during the appeals process. Our background and experiences also help us to be compassionate when helping our clients through these processes because we understand these issues are stressful and challenging for you. We are in the business of helping Florida residents, whether they live in Seminole, Sarasota or elsewhere in Florida, solve their problems.
Negotiating a Buyout
If you have insurance that provides a stream of payments, it may be possible for you to negotiate with your insurance company for the insurer to pay you a lump sum rather than spreading out the payments. This is known as a buyout. We can help you determine if you may be able to get a buyout, and if so, will help you decide whether or not a buyout is in your best interest. If so, we can assist you in negotiating with your insurer for a buyout.
Sometimes, an overpayment of benefits may occur if your disability insurance carrier pay you your full disability benefits and later the Social Security Administration approves your claim. We realize that receiving a Notice of Overpayment from your insurance carrier can be disturbing. At CJ Henry Law Firm, PLLC, we can negotiate with your insurance carrier on your behalf to come to the best resolution possible.
In short, we help Florida residents experiencing disability related legal problems including disability insurance and other disability claims. As a disability attorney, CJ Henry Law Firm would like help you with your claim.
