Our Testimonials

Filing an Administrative Appeal

Unfortunately, long-term disability application denials are not uncommon. In fact, in many instances, applicants will have to go through the process several times prior to being awarded benefits for long-term disability.

Once the insurance company denies your claim, you should carefully review the letter issued by your insurance company, explaining why your claim has been denied. In some instances, the denial may have occurred because you failed to follow a simple protocol or procedure established by your insurance company for filing long-term disability claims. 

At other times, your claim may have been denied because you did not attach sufficient medical documentation. In order for you to be awarded long term disability benefits by your insurance company, a healthcare provider must state, beyond a reasonable degree of medical certainty, that you are permanently disabled, and that your disability prevents you from working in any capacity.

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

It is important that you take advantage of the administrative appeals process, which will entitle you to either one or two administrative appeals, since you may only supplement the record with additional medical documentation during this time period. Once the case proceeds to federal court, you will no longer have the ability to supplement the administrative record.

Filing a Federal Court Appeal

When you file a lawsuit against your insurance company in the federal court system, a judge is left to determine whether or not you are entitled to benefits. During any court proceedings, the judge will consider only the facts and documentation which are present in the insurance company’s administrative record. You will not be allowed to introduce new evidence, medical records, or other documentation at the federal court level.

Insurance companies are aware that they have numerous advantages in federal court. Therefore, if you elect to appeal your case to the federal court system by filing suit against your insurance company, it is essential that you retain the services of a long-term disability appeals lawyer near you to assist you throughout both the administrative appeal and the federal court appeals processes.
