If you are disabled and unable to work, you may be eligible for long-term disability (LTD) insurance benefits under a disability insurance policy. You likely have enough worries with respect to your medical treatment, medical bills, and other complications caused by your loss of income and deteriorating health. That’s why it is so frustrating to have to fight with a disability insurance company to get the benefits you deserve.
You see, disability insurance companies understand the disability rules and regulations such as ERISA, and will use those rules against you. You need an experienced team of attorneys and professional staff who understand the rules, and know how to use those same rules to fight back and protect the rights of people filing disability claims.
Our skilled and experienced long-term disability attorney can help improve the chances of your claim being approved if you’ve been wrongfully denied benefits.
We help clients file administrative appeals after denial letters as well as lawsuits against LTD insurance companies. We handle both group disability claims that are typically governed by ERISA regulations, as well as individual disability insurance (“IDI” or “DI”) policy claims.
