Detroit Disability Attorneys
Long-Term and Short-Term Disability Appeals
If you have short or long-term disability insurance, have sustained an
injury that prevents you from working, and have had your application for
benefits denied, choosing an experienced lawyer to assist you with the
appeals process can increase your chances of receiving benefits. Filing
an appeal for a disability claim can be a very complex undertaking for
a person to handle on their own without representation. Missing an important
deadline or accidentally saying the wrong thing to an insurance adjuster
could end up compromising a filer’s chance of receiving benefits.
With so much that could potentially go wrong, don't risk the outcome
of your case by not teaming up with an attorney.

How Can a Disability Attorney Help with the Appeals Process?
Our lawyers have significant experience handling disability claim appeals
and know how to abide by rules set forth by the Employee Retirement Income
Security Act (ERISA), which governs employer-provided group long-term
disability insurance. One of the ways an attorney can help with your appeal
is by preparing your claims file for a lawsuit. Many people are surprised
to find that when they sue their insurance company, they are forbidden
from introducing any new evidence outside of that it contained in their
claims file. Often, insurance company records are biased and likely do
not have all of the relevant medical evidence necessary to prove your
work-related limitations. A lawyer can help add vocational, medical, and
other evidence to the administrative record to strengthen your claim.
We can also help by securing a vocational expert on your behalf rather
than relying on the supposedly “independent” testimony of
someone hired by your insurance company. In addition, we will file your
appeal in a timely manner, interact with your insurance company on your
behalf, and either conduct settlement negotiations or bring a federal lawsuit.
