If your claim has been denied or terminated, talk to our ERISA attorneys. We can help you turn your case around.

We Know How To Protect Your Long-Term Disability Rights

Getting long-term disability (LTD) benefits through your employer isn’t always easy. Delays, denials and early termination of benefits are far too common. By enlisting an attorney, you can overcome these hurdles and maximize your chances of success.

For more than 35 years, our long-term disability lawyers here at ERISA Law Center in Fresno, California, have provided intelligent representation to disabled people fighting for their LTD benefits and other insurance rights. We excel both at appealing denials and at litigating claims if it becomes necessary.

Why Experience Matters When Navigating LTD Claims

35 years of experience means we know how to work within the regulations that govern disability benefits in the private sector – namely, ERISA (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974). We also understand the strategies used by insurance companies to deny or terminate your claim and how to deal with them efficiently.

Whether your claim involves LTD, a life insurance claim or bad-faith claim denial, you can count on our attorneys to put your rights first.

A Personalized Approach To Getting You The Disability Benefits You Deserve

People from all walks of life come to us seeking a way to make ends meet after a disabling injury or condition takes away their ability to work. Navigating the long-term disability process – and the many obstacles that can arise – adds additional stress and headaches to an already challenging situation. We can shoulder those burdens for you, intervening on your behalf to pursue the full benefits you deserve.

When you work with ERISA Law Center, you can expect personalized legal guidance tailored to your situation. We do not simply process your case. We will take the time to understand your situation – including the details of your employer’s long-term disability ERISA plan – and provide carefully considered advice on your options, empowering you to make an informed decision on how to move forward.
