Assisting Individuals in Texas with Appealing a Disability Insurance Denial

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 covers the majority of employer-sponsored disability insurance plans. Under this federal law, there are many incentives for insurance companies to deny disability benefits, at which point it becomes necessary to file an appeal. 

Filing a disability insurance appeal is a multi-step process and can be time-consuming. The knowledgeable disability insurance appeal lawyers at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara could assist you with every step of the appeals process, including obtaining the supplemental documentation you may need and attending all legal proceedings, including hearings.

When Could I Apply for Disability Benefits?

In order for you to be eligible for disability benefits, you must suffer from a long-term illness or a long-term injury. Moreover, the injury or illness from which you suffer must preclude you from being able to work in any capacity.

In many instances, insurance companies will dispute that an applicant is totally unable to work in any capacity. It is also not uncommon for disability benefits to be denied on the first try. When that happens, the insured could begin the appeals process. 

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

How do I Appeal a Denial of my Disability Benefits?

The first step in appealing a denial of disability benefits involves filing an administrative appeal according to your insurance company’s protocol. Prior to filing an appeal, you and your lawyer should carefully review the denial letter that was sent by your insurance company. That denial letter should contain information about the following:

  • The reason why your application for disability benefits was denied
  • What you need to include to supplement your application
  • The deadline for filing your administrative appeal

If you fail to follow your insurance company’s instructions set forth in the denial letter – or if you do not file your administrative appeal in a timely manner, your appeal will very likely be denied. 

Once you exhaust the administrative appeals process outlined by your insurance company, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit directly against your insurance company. This lawsuit will need to be filed in the federal court system. When you file a lawsuit against your insurance company, the insurance company will appoint legal counsel to represent them. The insurance company’s attorneys will file an answer to the complaint, and the parties will likely engage in discovery. 

Finally, the case will proceed forward to a hearing in federal court. At the federal court hearing, the judge will listen to the arguments and evidence presented, although no new medical documentation is allowed to be introduced at the federal level. The federal judge (as opposed to a jury) will then render the final decision in the case with regard to disability benefits.
