Indiana Long-Term Disability Lawyers
Long-term disability insurance policies provide benefits that are designed to relieve the financial burden you may face when health conditions prevent you from working for a long period of time, usually after short-term disability benefits run out after three to six months.
Unfortunately, many well supported claims are denied. The majority of long-term disability denials are governed by ERISA. ERISA law is complex, and the insurance companies have legal teams experienced in this area of law. It is critical that a denied claimant have their own qualified attorney by their side in fighting back. Insurance companies will often seem helpful, telling unsuspecting claimants, or implying to them, that they do not need their own attorney and that the claimant can handle the appeal on their own. Vague instructions, confusing appeal forms, and misleading information only lead to insufficient information and documentation being submitted, and the appeal ultimately being denied.
