There are many different issues that can arise in short and long-term disability cases. We understand, however, that the prospect of losing your income due to an unexpected disabling condition is very frightening. If you are preparing your initial application, we can work with you to make sure you give yourself the best possible chance to succeed. Although most individuals would not likely consider seeking legal advice at this juncture, it is imperative that they do so prior to submitting their initial application for benefits in order to create and preserve a solid record of evidence. Detailed medical evidence may help persuade the plan administrator that benefits are due. Alternatively, a properly developed record will help the claimant if it becomes necessary to resort to litigation.
If your initial application for short or long-term disability benefits has been denied, or if an actively-paid claim has been denied, do not get discouraged. Most people who receive benefits have to file an appeal. The decisions made by plan administrators regarding disability benefits are often arbitrary and capricious, displaying little connection between the evidence presented and their final verdict. We will immediately begin an investigation into why your claim was denied and take action to remedy the mistake on your appeal.Protecting All Disabled People
