Mesquite Disability Insurance Lawyers – Private and Group (ERISA) LTD Claims
You may have a private disability insurance policy that you purchased on your own. For many doctors, dentists, CEOs, and high earners these policies include own occupation coverage with insurance riders to help cover full benefits. The expense is high but is essential to safeguard the income level if disability strikes.
Alternatively, you may be covered by a group disability insurance plan provided by your employer. Many companies offer their employees group short and long-term disability coverage as a benefit.
The insurance laws and procedures regulating the two types of disability insurance are very different:
- Private disability insurance claims are governed by state insurance law.
- Group disability claims are governed by strict federal ERISA law
But now the worst has happened, and you need to file a claim on the policy you have – but the insurer is giving you a hard time:
- Your claim has been denied without good cause or reason; or
- The insurance company is painfully delaying the process; or
- The insurer wants to settle your claim quickly for a low lump sum, rather than paying Benefits until the end of your long term disability period; or
- While your initial claim for short term disability was awarded, now the insurer terminates all long term disability benefits.
In reality, insurance companies have little desire to pay out millions of dollars in benefits – even when claims are clearly valid. Many companies engage in unethical tactics to protect their bottom line.
The best way to prevail over an insurer who does not play fair is to beat them at their own game. Our disability law firm protects Mesquite policyholders by making sure their insurance companies deal with them fairly and in good faith.
We will help you appeal your denied claim, as well as assist you with a continuing disability claim or wrongly terminated benefits. This is no time to take chances! Call for a free case evaluation and learn exactly how we can help
