Denial of Long Term Disability Insurance Claims
If your claim for group or individual disability insurance was wrongly denied, do not hesitate to contact us. It is vital that you consult with Texas attorneys who work explicitly with all aspects of disability insurance law. Here is why:
- Group disability benefit plans are governed by the strict federal employee benefits law known as ERISA. These appeals should be handled immediately and according to the insurance company’s administrative appeal process (as stated in the policy).
- Private long term disability policies are those where individual policyholders pay premiums directly to the insurer, keeping the coverage in force. Disputes over these claims are governed by state insurance laws, which are entirely different from ERISA law.
Not all disability lawyers are knowledgeable in the areas of ERISA and state disability insurance laws, case law, and procedural law. The team at Marc Whitehead & Associates is highly qualified to represent you.
These critical factors, coupled with the facts of your specific case, affect how we build and argue your case, from the initial claim application, to an appeal, to litigation. Our Plano disability lawyers represent clients in cases against the country’s largest disability insurance companies such as:
- Colonial Life
- Liberty Mutual
- Lincoln Financial Group
- New York Life
- Sun Life
- The Hartford
If an insurer has rejected your claim, call on us for immediate assistance. Our attorneys will evaluate your case and help you understand your legal options, at no cost or obligation to you.
Plano Lawyers for Social Security Disability Benefits
Are you having problems getting Social Security Disability benefits? Do you have questions that need answers? From filing initial applications to taking the next step after a denied claim, our law firm offers superior legal counsel.
If your claim for Social Security disability benefits is denied, you are not alone. The sad truth is, about seventy percent of the initial claims filed are denied; even those that are clearly warranted. Reasons include:
- documentation errors on the initial application
- incomplete or missing medical evidence of disability or other necessary information
- the case for disability is not clearly explained or proven
To build the strongest possible appeal, you need a qualified Social Security Disability lawyer on your side. Marc Whitehead is Board Certified in Social Security Disability Law by the National board of Social Security Disability Advocacy.
If the Social Security Administration denied your claim, contact us. Our Plano disability lawyers know how to develop your case with the evidence the SSA needs to award benefits, clearly establishing your medical conditions, your functional capacity, and proof of disability.
