Counsel at our firm has years of experience handling long- and short-term disability insurance claims for plaintiffs, for both claims governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and non-ERISA claims. This includes handling administrative appeals by claimants directly to their disability insurer, as well as U.S. District Court action against insurers following an administrative appeal process.
Disability insurance claims require highly specialized knowledge and legal proficiency to ensure optimal success. This involves a solid understanding of ERISA and non-ERISA precent and relevant statute, in addition to familiarity with administrative and federal court processes. Our counsel can navigate client claims at any stage of the process – from marshaling supporting evidence on initial insurer review, to discovery and briefing at the district court level, to helping achieve cost-efficient and beneficial outcomes through settlement and mediation options.
Meeting the challenges of life-altering disabilities can be difficult enough without the added burdens of overcoming insurance benefit denials. We can help you through these trying times – and will zealously work on your behalf to secure the disability benefits you deserve.
