According to the United States Census Bureau, 12.1% of the Montgomery population under the age of 65 is living with a disability. If your condition lasts or is expected to last a period of 12 months or longer you may also be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. If an individual’s disability is so severe that they are unable to work then they may qualify for short term or long term disability benefits. These benefits are often available as part of a group benefits plan offered by an employer.
Our Montgomery Long Term Disability Lawyer Will Fight for the Benefits You Deserve
We represent long term disability claimants nationwide, so you are not limited to disability attorneys in your local area. We review each claim on a case by case basis, so do not hesitate to contact our office. We offer a free consultation to long term disability claimants whose claims have been wrongfully denied or terminated.
ERISA laws are very complex, but an experienced long term disability lawyer will be aware of the administrative deadlines and critical issues that must be addressed for a successful claim. It is essential that an experienced long term disability lawyer review the claim file during the administrative appeal process in order to determine what additional medical and/or vocational evidence needs to be added to the administrative file and to determine what adverse information needs to be disputed. Although no two cases are alike, we’ve developed a system to prepare a comprehensive appeal in support of your claim.
There are some cases where we may not be able to represent a claimant due to their location, but we still evaluate each case on a case-by-case basis. Nick Ortiz can either be admitted to your local federal court by what we would call a pro hac vice admission, or he can file a lawsuit here in the state of Florida. If we cannot assist you, we will attempt to refer you to another law firm that can.
You Only Have a Limited Time to Appeal Your Denial
Most long term disability policies only allow you 180 days to submit an appeal. Failure to submit your appeal within the specified time frame may prevent you from receiving the benefits you deserve. Under many long term disability insurance policies, you are unable to file a lawsuit against the insurance carrier unless you have “exhausted” your appeals. Therefore, we recommend speaking with a Montgomery long term disability lawyer immediately after receiving your denial or termination letter.
