Our long term disability insurance claims attorneys assist with all stages of the disability claim process. We can help you with:
Involving an experienced disability lawyer at the claim application stage can change the outcome of your case. We will help you file a conclusive disability application, and oversee your disability case from start to finish.
Our firm can help you with every aspect of your denied claim under a group disability plan. Governed by complex ERISA law, the appeals process is the most important step in any group claim denial. You can only file a lawsuit once all claim appeals have been exhausted. You need lawyers who are dedicated to appealing and litigating ERISA disability insurance cases fighting for you.
We work directly with medical professionals, business executives, and high income individuals nationwide to protect their disability benefits from wrongful denial under private policies. Whether this means appealing the denial, negotiating a settlement or litigating the matter in court, you need attorneys on your side experienced in state insurance and contract laws, tort law and consumer protection laws.
Once benefits start, insurers will require monthly proof of continued disability. Through our Benefit Protection ServicesTM, we take this legal burden off your shoulders to ensure you receive continuing payments for years to come.
While it may sound appealing, a lump sum settlement offer from the insurance company can either be risky or beneficial for you. Buyouts and settlement always call for experienced legal analysis and guidance. Our attorneys will ensure that your rights and benefits are protected.
Your policy likely has a provision for Total and Residual disability. There is a huge difference between these two levels of disability, and you should never assume the insurer will qualify you correctly. Get attorney review of your policy to understand what it really means in your situation under your policy’s terms.
