Why You May Need an Attorney to Get Your Long Term Disability Benefits

Long term disability claims can be complex and difficult to navigate successfully due to all the requirements you must meet. In addition, most claimants receive a denial of their application initially, and many do not know where to turn after that. In fact, some claimants have to resort to litigation to get the benefits they deserve.

If you are already receiving benefits but your claim is under review or you have received an offer for a lump-sum settlement to replace your monthly benefits, you need a lawyer to ensure your rights are protected and the proposed change is in your best interest.

Here at Abell and Capitan Law, we have handled all of these areas and more. Our lawyers devote the majority of our time and efforts to helping our clients obtain the benefits they need to support themselves and their families, and we have extensive experience with all of the following:

  • Applications for long term disability – Although you can apply for long term disability benefits without having legal counsel, a lawyer experienced in this area can help you avoid potential mistakes and other problems that could delay your application or cause it to be denied altogether.
  • Long term disability lawsuits – Sometimes, the only way to resolve a legal issue is through litigation. Usually a last resort, filing a lawsuit will send a clear message to the insurance company that you mean business. We have successfully handled many lawsuits for our clients seeking long term disability who had no other options to pursue.
  • Appealing denied long term disability applications – If you received a denial of your application, you likely have the option to appeal. Much like with completing and submitting your initial application, you do not necessarily need a lawyer to appeal your claim, but an attorney with experience appealing denied long term disability applications can help you avoid costly and time-consuming mistakes and increase your chances of success.
  • Lump-sum settlements – There are times when an insurance company will offer a lump-sum settlement to replace your current monthly payments. You have likely come to rely on the monthly benefits as part of your household budget, and you may not get the full amount that your claim is worth if you accept the lump sum. What’s more, if you accept the settlement, you essentially forfeit your legal right to reapply for disability benefits from the same provider, and you may no longer qualify for other benefits.
  • Claim management and reviews – Once you begin receiving your benefits, you will likely face administrative reviews of your claim periodically. Your insurance provider may also ask you to attend interviews in person as they investigate your claim, or they may ask you to provide additional medical information. If these reviews or interviews are not handled properly, you could lose your benefits, so having a legal ally in your corner for assistance and representation throughout the process is essential.
