Disability Claims and ERISA Representation

Disability Insurance Claims

Our disability attorneys are experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects and all forms of Short Term and Long Term Disability insurance. Disability insurance policies can be broken down into either short-term disability or long-term disability. Some policies are offered through employers, which are referred to as group insurance.However, individuals can purchase standalone policies or as a supplement to group insurance policies they have through their employer’s group plan; these plans are typically governed by ERISA. Although they each serve a similar purpose, individual disability insurance policies offered through an employer have substantially different rules compared to group disability insurance policies.

Our firm offers free consultations on matters of Short and Long Term Disability insurance claims, including:

  • Policy Analysis
  • Applications
  • Monthly Claim Handling
  • Denied Claims
  • Appeals

Why You Should Enlist Our Help

Insurance policies are purposefully drafted in confusing terms. Some insurance carriers use contractual loopholes to delay or deny claims; or give the appearance of grounds for denial of the claim. Our goal is to submit airtight claim documentation to avoid the need for a lawsuit. However, if a lawsuit is needed, we will take the aggressive approach to expedite the proper outcome. Big insurance companies should be held accountable to the language in their own policies and therefore we work to get policyholders the benefits they paid for and rightfully deserve. Don’t let the insurance company beat you down and most importantly don’t give up. Consider scheduling a consultation with an experienced disability attorney from Marcellino & Tyson.
