Long Term Disability, ERISA, and Disability Insurance Claims in Charlotte
Long term disability insurance is designed to protect you should you experience a debilitating injury or illness. You’ve paid for your policy trusting that the insurance company would provide benefits if you’re unable to work. The issue, however, is that these companies are businesses first. They profit by managing risk and minimizing payouts.
If you’ve received a denial, our skilled legal team can help you navigate the appeal process while you focus on managing your health. If necessary, we can file a lawsuit against your insurance company. We manage both group ERISA disability claims and individual disability insurance (IDI or DI) policy claims.
If you have been receiving benefits for an extended period, your insurer may offer a lump sum settlement. If you receive such an offer, we can assist you in assessing the fairness of the deal and potentially negotiate for a higher settlement.

Social Security Disability Claims in Charlotte
We also advocate for the rights of Social Security Disability claimants. Nick Ortiz is a Social Security Disability attorney with extensive experience representing claimants at all stages of the process. We accept cases nationwide, and thanks to advancements like the SSA using the Microsoft Teams platform for hearings, our geographical location no longer restricts access to our services.
Even if you have long term disability insurance, your policy may require you to apply for Social Security Disability benefits simultaneously. They may refer you to specialized organizations like Allsup or The Advocator Group, but you have the freedom to seek representation from a private Social Security Disability attorney instead.
