Are you unable to work due to an illness or injury? Have you received a denial letter from your disability insurance carrier or the Social Security Administration? If so, you may benefit from the assistance of an experienced disability lawyer. We assist claimants nationwide and have recovered millions in denied benefits.
We represent long term disability insurance claimants with wrongfully denied or terminated disability insurance claims. We assist claimants in the administrative appeal process with the insurance carrier. Depending on the terms of your policy, we may be able to file a lawsuit without having to appeal. We will review the terms of your specific policy and determine the best strategy for your unique situation.
We also represent Social Security Disability claimants. We will assist you in filing an initial application or appealing a denial. We will represent you at a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge if necessary.
Paterson Long Term Disability Insurance Claims
We have a “no recovery, zero-fee” guarantee, which means hiring an attorney won’t cost you anything unless your case is successful. Our experienced legal team can assist you with the following parts of a disability insurance claim:
- We can file an administrative appeal with the insurance carrier if you have been denied benefits.
- If all of your appeals have been denied, we may be able to file a lawsuit.
- If your insurer has denied your short-term disability benefits and you have long term disability coverage that may be impacted, we may be able to assist you with that claim as well.
- Suppose you receive a lump-sum buyout or settlement offer from the insurance company. In that case, we will evaluate the fairness of the offer and, if possible, negotiate for a higher settlement amount.
So Ortiz Law Firm Handles Long Term Disability Claims Anywhere in the United States?
The Ortiz Law Firm represents disability claimants nationwide! You will never have to appear at our office in Pensacola, Florida. We primarily use e-mail and phone calls to communicate with our clients, regardless of your location.
You also won’t have to worry about court appearances. Most LTD cases are governed by a regulation called ERISA, which states that you do not have the right to a jury trial. The litigation process does involve a lot of paperwork, but court appearances are very unlikely.
If ERISA does not govern your case, we may still be able to help. We evaluate each case individually to determine how we can help. If your case has been denied or terminated, contact us as soon as possible to schedule your free consultation with a Paterson, New Jersey disability attorney.
