Claim Delay or Denial Options
Many disability benefit claim denials can be prevented by effectively preparing your benefit application. Many delays in payment or denials can be overturned prior to suit, by challenging the insurance company’s basis for the delay or denial and collecting the right information to support your claim.
The Disability Insurance Law Group represents clients nationwide who are fighting unfairly delayed or denied claims for benefits. Lawyers at our firm will help you understand your options and can pursue determined legal action on your behalf.
We Can Help You Seek Administrative Remedies to Your Claim Denial
We will vigorously negotiate with the insurance company or benefits administrator to help resolve any dispute regarding your injury or illness. However, if the company refuses to overturn a wrongful denial, we aggressively fight to protect our client’s rights at trial. Your claim delay or denial options will vary depending on whether you have a private or group disability insurance policy or benefit plan.
Your policy or benefit plan may require you to exhaust your administrative remedies prior to filing a lawsuit. If you do not meet your obligations, you may be barred or impaired from further seeking benefits. It is imperative that you understand your rights and obligations in the process.
When Should I File a Lawsuit?
If an insurance company or benefits administrator refuses to overturn a wrongful delay or denial of benefits, filing a lawsuit in court is the next step of the process. Many claimants feel that they are being stonewalled by their insurance carrier, and no matter what information they or their physicians provide, their company refuses to pay benefits.
These claims are often fiercely litigated and involve highly complex legal issues. If you find yourself in a position in which your insurance carrier is refusing to pay benefits, you need an attorney who understands the disability benefits process, has experience in litigating these unique claims, and has gone up against your insurance company or benefits administrator in the past.
The attorneys at Disability Insurance Law Group are committed to aggressively asserting our clients’ rights in and out of the courtroom. We are known by the insurance companies, benefits administrators and their attorneys for our experience, skill and understanding of the law.
