RECOVER YOUR DENIED INSURANCE BENEFITS

LET A FORMER INSURANCE COMPANY ATTORNEY
GUIDE YOU

Long Term Disability / Life /
Accidental Death / ERISA

Our past years of representing insurance companies taught us a thing or two about how they work behind the scenes. Let our experience work for you.

Limestone County Long Term Disability Denials Lawyer

Although the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) was designed to protect employees who are unable to work due to illness or injury, filing a claim can be an extremely onerous process, especially because your claim is reviewed by your employer’s insurance company, which has every interest in denying the claim. One oversight—or mistake—can place your benefits in jeopardy and introduce a significant amount of unjust delay.

Client Testimonials

Our Testimonials

This is why an attorney who specializes in long-term disability/ERISA litigation can be extremely helpful. ERISA attorneys not only know the ins and outs of the application process but are well-versed in dealing with appeals that end in success.

As soon as you are unable to work, contacting a long term disability attorney will help you proceed strategically through every step of the claims process. One of the most important aspects of your application, for example, is to include all of the relevant evidence upfront because you cannot introduce new evidence when you file a lawsuit. In other words, your attorney will “stack the record,” and include all of the relevant medical evidence and other information that is needed to make your application (and, if necessary, appeal) as successful as possible.

No one is more familiar with how insurance companies work in this area than the attorneys at The Law Offices of J. Price McNamara. Having previously worked for insurance companies, we know the intricate ins and outs of how to get the job done for our clients, and we handle cases on a contingency fee basis, so we only get paid if/when you get paid.

 

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

Why Insurance Carriers Deny Long Term Disability Claims

First and foremost, it is important to understand that the terms and conditions of how and when you can receive long term disability are in large part dictated by the actual plan to which your employer subscribes. For example, many policies dictate that you are only eligible for benefits if your disability is so severe that you cannot work in any occupation for which you are reasonably qualified, and some find ways of reducing your benefits due to external factors, such as if you qualify for or receive Social Security disability income benefits.

Aside from what the plan specifically provides for, insurance companies come up with a number of excuses to deny benefits, for example, finding that there is “not objective medical evidence on file to support disability.” Frequently, companies will send a claimant’s file to independent medical experts, who disagree with the claimants’ doctors that they cannot perform work—even without conducting a physical examination of the claimant.

Other common reasons insurance companies cite to deny benefits include:

  • Your disability does not fit the insurer’s definition of disability:
  • You are not yet eligible to receive long term disability benefits because you are still in the “elimination period” and must first use up all of your short-term disability and sick time before filing for long term disability;
  • You did not also file for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits;
  • Your doctor’s statement was insufficient; and/or
  • You missed the appeal deadline (most plans provide you with 180 days to appeal).
