COVID-19

The uncertainty of the present times is the cause of great consternation to many of us.  Some have suffered from not only the virus but also the emotional and psychological impact on the changes which have been radically forced upon us.  We here at Herbert M. Hill, P.A. do our best to remain aware of this impact on our clients and their families.

Our primary focus has to be on protecting your legal rights to the Short Term Disability or Long Term Disability benefits to which you are entitled.  We are endeavoring to ensure that each case continues to move along apace.  There are some unavoidable delays and some long term disability insurance companies which are using COVID-19 as a reason for further delaying handling of claims.  We are reasonable in our approach to such matters but will not allow any unnecessary delays.

We are fortunate in that we are wholly paperless and therefore able to continue our work remotely.  There are times when face to face meetings are set up.  Our office has been modified to allow healthy, social-distanced meetings.  We can also communicate by zoom, if necessary.

The societal changes which may result from our shared experience with this pandemic will be interesting and, perhaps, of some value.  Nonetheless, the suffering being suffered by many is heart-wrenching.  I personally realize there is only a little I can do as far as the medical situation is concerned and I am, faithfully, doing that.  I think ever since I was a child, I wanted to wear a kerchief like a cowboy!

The positive thing we can all do is to take a few minutes each day to check in our loved ones and friends.  This is especially so for those who are alone and are, essentially, in quarantine.  Let’s all extend ourselves and get through this stronger than ever!

If you have any questions about your Short Term Disability or Long Term Disability claim, please give Herbert M. Hill, P.A. a call and we would be glad to answer any questions you may have.   We are available at 407-839-0005 or, toll-free, 844-454-59995,  If you would like, after discussing your case, we can set a conference.  In most circumstances, that conference would be free of charge but in no circumstance would you be under any obligation to hire me nor would you feel any pressure from me to do so.

Herbert M. Hill, P.A. is a law firm located in Orlando, Florida with a practice extending throughout the state of Florida.  While the vast majority of cases handled are for disability insurance benefits, areas of practice include employee benefit claims of all sorts.  The firm handles any claims arising under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”) for disability benefits, medical benefits, retirement benefits of any sort, including pension, 401k, termination agreements or the like as well as claims arising under private disability policies.
