The future is unpredictable: on any given day you could be involved in an accident or develop a disabling medical condition. If your injury or illness is severe enough to prevent work activity, you may even need to apply for disability insurance or Social Security Disability benefits to replace your lost income. You likely have enough to worry about already, but a Warren disability lawyer at Ortiz Law Firm can help you get the disability benefits you deserve.
Nick Ortiz and his experienced team at the Ortiz Law Firm represent both long-term disability and Social Security Disability claimants in Warren, MI, and the surrounding area.

If your claim for disability benefits has been denied or terminated, contact our office for a free consultation. Let a disability lawyer fight for your long-term disability and Social Security Disability benefits so you can focus on what really matters – your health.
Ortiz Law Firm Handles Warren Long Term Disability Claims
We represent long-term disability claimants whose claims have been wrongfully denied or terminated. We prepare and file appeals on behalf of our clients. If necessary, we will also prepare and file a lawsuit against the insurance company.
If you are unable to work as a result of an injury or accident and the insurance company has denied or terminated your claim then contact our office right away to see what a Warren long-term disability lawyer can do for you. We offer a no recovery, zero-fee guarantee, which means that we will only get paid if we are able to recover benefits for you.
We Handle Long Term Disability Claims Nationwide from Our Pensacola Office
Ortiz Law Firm is based primarily in Pensacola, Florida, but because most group plans are governed by ERISA, Nick Ortiz can handle a case anywhere in the United States. In fact, in the past few years, he has represented individuals from Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and even claimants around the world (prior clients have lived in Morocco and the Philippines, for example).
There may be some situations 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.
Medical Requirements in a Long Term Disability Claim
The most time-consuming part of a long-term disability claim is obtaining the medical evidence to support your claim. The burden of proof falls on the claimant, which means it is your responsibility to provide supporting evidence to the insurance company. A disability lawyer such as Nick Ortiz will carry this burden for you so that you can focus on your health. Our office will obtain all of the necessary documentation to be included with your appeal. Most policies require proof of objective evidence, which is evidence that the insurance company cannot deny exists, such as:
- CT Scans
- Blood tests
- Psychological tests
