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.

Texas Long Term Disability Denial Attorney 

Assisting Texans with Appealing a Denial of Long-Term Disability Benefits

An individual who has a long-term disability insurance policy may be eligible to obtain benefits in certain circumstances. Under most long-term disability policies, the insured must be able to demonstrate that he or she suffers from a long-term injury or illness that prevents him or her from working in any capacity, to recover benefits. If the insured is unable to satisfy this medical threshold, the insurance company will likely deny the benefits claim. 

If you or someone you care about has been denied benefits for a long-term disability, it is important to have a skilled team of lawyers on your side who can advocate for you and assist you with pursuing benefits in your case. The knowledgeable Texas long term disability lawyers at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara can help you respond to a disability benefits denial and pursue benefits on your behalf. Please contact us today for more information and to schedule a free case evaluation and legal consultation.

Why are Claims for Long-Term Disability Benefits Denied?

There are several common reasons why long-term disability benefits claims are denied. One of the most common reasons for a claim denial is that the medical documentation provided with the application does not support a long-term disability. In order for an insured to obtain benefits, a health care provider must note, to a reasonable degree of medical probability, that the injury or illness from which the insured suffers prevents him or her from working in any capacity, and at any job. 

If a health care provider is not willing to make this statement or is otherwise not on board with the disability claim, the insurance company will deny the claim for insufficient medical documentation. On appeal, the insured will have an opportunity to submit additional medical documentation for the insurance company’s consideration. Once the administrative appeal has been filed, the insurance company will review any new documentation and make a decision. Some insurance companies allow only one round of administrative appeals, while other insurance companies allow two rounds. 

What are the Steps to Take Following an Administrative Denial?

Once an insured has administratively appealed the claim, and the disability claim has again been denied by the insurance company, the insured may appeal the matter to federal court. A federal appeal starts when the insured files a lawsuit in federal court against his or her insurance company. Once the lawsuit is filed and discovery concludes, a federal judge will have the final say on an insured’s entitlement to disability benefits. 

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