Grand Rapids Long Term Disability Lawyer
You did your best to prepare for an uncertain future. You purchased disability insurance to support yourself in the event of a disabling medical condition. You’ve faithfully paid your premiums month after month, but not that you have developed a disabling medical condition that prevents you from working, you find that your claim has been denied. So what went wrong?
Unfortunately for claimants, the insurance company is a profit-driven business, and it would prefer not to pay your claim. When you need benefits most, the insurance company will use all of its tricks and tactics to deny the benefits you were counting on. If your insurer has denied your claim, we can help you recover your benefits. We will file an administrative appeal on your behalf. If necessary, we will also file a lawsuit against your LTD insurance company. We assist claimants with group disability claims governed by ERISA and individual disability insurance claims.
