Long-Term Disability Attorney Near Me

Long-Term Disability Attorney Near Me

While you may think that a long-term disability insurance company is there to protect you and be on your side, that is not the case. These companies are big corporations whose only goal is to earn a profit from you. If you purchased a long-term disability insurance policy to provide you and your family with financial assistance if you become disabled, you may be surprised when the insurance company refuses to pay the benefits to which you are entitled.

Fortunately, you do not have to accept no. Your long-term disability insurer cannot deny a legitimate claim. Whether you have already applied for and been denied benefits, you want assistance in filing an initial application, the Long-Term Disability attorneys at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara can help.

Denial of Long-Term Disability Claims

The insurance companies that most commonly issue policies for disability are Aetna, Unum, Provident Life, and Accident Insurance, Liberty Mutual, New York Life, Prudential, MetLife, The Hartford, Penn Mutual, Cigna, Guardian Insurance, and more. It is common practice for these companies and others to deny or delay paying insurance claims to increase profits and decrease their costs.

An experienced long-term disability claims attorney understands how these companies work. Our goal is to protect our clients from these abusive tactics and recover the compensation to which they are entitled. In addition to ensuring your claim is approved, we can also help with the following:

  • Assist you in filling out forms for your insurance company.
  • Evaluate your claim and help you understand your legal options.
  • Obtain and review your medical records and give you suggestions for additional tests that might help prove your case.
  • Obtain additional medical records to supplement your claim.
  • Obtain opinions and other medical reports for evidence supporting your disability.
  • Consult with a vocational expert to get an opinion to rebut the insurance company’s denial.
  • Develop any evidence that might help prove residual functional capacity for your claim.
  • File an appeal for disability claims if necessary.
  • Ensure your benefits have been correctly calculated.
  • File legal briefs to argue the medical, legal, and vocational issues of your case.
  • File a lawsuit in the Federal Court if needed.
  • Conduct adequate discovery for Federal Court as well as any other necessary documents and depositions.
  • Respond to Motions for Summary Judgment.
