Austin Disability Appeals Lawyer

Helping People in Austin Appeal a Denial of Disability Benefits

Filing an appeal in a long-term disability case can be a lengthy process. The first step is to ensure that you have exhausted all of the possible administrative appeal remedies through your insurance company. Your insurance company is required to allow you at least one chance to appeal your case. Depending on your insurance company, you may have up to two opportunities to file for administrative review.

After you have exhausted your administrative remedies at the insurance company level, you will have to file a disability appeal in the federal court system. 

Federal court litigation can be difficult. At the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara, our legal team can answer all of your questions about the process and can assist you with each stage of the litigation process.

Administrative Appeals

If you are filing a disability appeal, the first step that you should take is to look at your denial letter. You should have received a denial letter from your insurance company. In the denial letter, it will reference a deadline for filing an administrative appeal in your case. The denial letter should also state with particularity the reason or reasons why your disability claim was denied in the first place.

The majority of disability claims are denied when the insured fails to provide sufficient medical documentation. The documentation must demonstrate that you are suffering from an injury or illness that is disabling and that as a result, you are unable to work in any capacity. 

When you file your administrative appeal, you should make sure that you include documentation from a physician which states that your disability prevents you from working. The insurance company review level is the only time when you are able to introduce additional medical documentation. Once the case proceeds to federal court, you are no longer permitted to introduce new medical evidence or otherwise supplement the record.

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

Appealing Your Case in Federal Court

Once you have exhausted all of the administrative remedies at the insurance company level, if you are still without benefits, you must pursue litigation in federal court. What a federal judge is making a decision at the appellate level, he or she will only consider documentation which is already in the record. New documentation is inadmissible at the federal level.

There are several disadvantages to litigating the case in federal court. One significant disadvantage to federal court litigation is that a single judge will be deciding the outcome of your case, rather than a jury. Moreover, you are not permitted to file a bad faith claim against your insurance company for denying your benefits claim. Consequently, it is extremely important that you have an experienced Austin disability appeals lawyer on board.
