Austin Disability Appeals Attorney

Helping Individuals in Austin with Appealing a Disability Claim Denial

Applications for long-term disability benefits are denied for many different reasons. One of the most common reasons why applications for long-term disability benefits are denied is because the proper medical documentation is not attached. In order for an application to be accepted and to receive long-term disability benefits, the medical records must demonstrate that you suffer from a long-term illness or injury that wholly prevents you from working in any capacity. 

Appealing a denial of long-term disability benefits can be a complex, multi-step process. The knowledgeable Austin disability appeals attorneys at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara will guide you through every step of the appeals process and can file both an administrative appeal – and if necessary, a federal court appeal – on your behalf. Please contact us online today for more information and to schedule a free case evaluation and legal consultation.

Our Testimonials

Claim Denial Letter

Regardless of the specific reason or reasons, if the insurance company decides to deny your claim for long-term disability benefits, it must send you a detailed letter. You should read that letter very carefully because it will outline the specific reasons why your claim for benefits has been denied. If the reason for the claim denial was a lack of sufficient medical documentation, the letter will state specifically which documentation needs to be added. 

The letter will also lay out the steps in the appeals process and all applicable time deadlines. You must be sure to follow all of these deadlines because if you miss a deadline, it is almost certain that the insurance company will deny your benefits claim for a second time.

Our number-one goal is getting you and your family back to financial security as soon as possible.

Administrative Appeals

If your long-term benefits claim is denied, the insurance company is required to give you at least one chance at appealing your claim denial. However, some insurance companies will give two opportunities to appeal a claim denial. Once the administrative appeal is filed, the insurance company will review the submission and make a decision about whether to extend your benefits. 

You should make sure to supplement your medical records at the administrative level because if you eventually file a federal lawsuit, you will not be able to supplement the appeal record at that time.

Federal Court Lawsuit

Once you have exhausted the administrative appeals process, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against your insurance company in federal court. However, the federal court process favors insurance companies, and the ultimate decision with regard to benefits rests with a federal judge – not a jury of your peers.
