Fight Back Against Your LTD Denial
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is a law that protects those who need to earn or keep their disability benefits from their employer. While this law is successful in its purpose, that does not mean that using it for your benefit is easy. In fact, it can be quite complicated.
If you or a loved one has had their insurer deny or terminate their long-term disability (LTD) benefits, work with an experienced ERISA attorney who can help. Our lawyers here at ERISA Law Center in Fresno, California, have over 35 years of experience fighting insurance companies to earn the benefits our clients deserve.
Our experience helps avoid critical errors during an appeal process. For example, once you complete the appeal process, you cannot add to or alter the administrative record after that point. We also know the time frame that you need to meet to successfully file an appeal. Whatever circumstances are surrounding your denied long-term disability claim, we have the knowledge and experience to guide you toward the best possible resolution of your case.
Do Not Take ‘No’ For An Answer When Your Insurance Company Denies Or Terminates Your Benefit
Insurers commonly deny or terminate disability claims, along with the appeals for them. When insurers do this, they hope that you do not pursue legal action so they can keep from paying you. There are a variety of reasons an insurer might deny your long-term disability claim, including:
- Failure to meet the policy’s definition of disabled
- Claim involves an excluded or preexisting condition
- Missing medical records
- Lack of medical documentation of ongoing treatment for the condition
- A finding by the insurance company’s doctors that you should be able to continue working
- Evidence such as video surveillance of you engaging in activities your disability should prevent you from
Each of these reasons involve complex variables that may or may not apply to you. Addressing them requires a comprehensive understanding of long-term disability rules and regulations. Thanks to ERISA, you do not have to let your insurance threaten your future. We have succeeded in filing hundreds of lawsuits that resulted in reinstating benefits or earning a fair settlement in a variety of circumstances.
