Disability Insurance Claims
Disability Insurance Claims Law Services - Garden City, N.Y
We provide comprehensive services to those insured under disability insurance law policies both before and during the disability claims process.
Before the claim is made to the disability insurance carrier, we provide informed and strategic advice as to the insured claimant's rights and obligations under the applicable insurance policy so that any future claim contains all of the required information. Our experience shows that consulting with informed legal counsel at the earliest possible juncture enables the insured claimant to minimize potential denials and leads to the most effective enforcement of rights under the applicable policy.
During the claims process, we provide knowledgeable advice on completing claim forms and answering questions and inquiries by the insurance carriers. In the event that claims are denied, we enforce the insured claimants' rights and remedies under the applicable policy to the full extent provided by law to maximize all available benefits. Attorneys in our Disability Insurance Claims Group have experience in both state and federal court enforcing the rights of claimants under their disability insurance policies.
For policies issued to individuals, we enforce the insured’s legal and contractual rights under state law. These rights include bringing a lawsuit for damages in the event the insurance carrier breaches its obligations under the policy. Such damages may include past withheld benefits as well as future benefits, court costs and interest.
For group policies, subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), we are experienced in both pre-lawsuit and litigation proceedings. We represent claimants in the ERISA appeal process in the event the claim is denied at any stage of the claims review. We also enforce our clients’ rights in federal court under ERISA, seeking damages and injunctive relief available under ERISA and the applicable policies.
We are mindful that at the critical time when insurance benefits are most needed, the process can be overwhelming and frustrating to the insured individual. We are sensitive to the needs of our clients and provide timely, effective legal advice maximizing all applicable benefits to which they are entitled. In the course of our representation, we have recovered millions of dollars in insurance benefits wrongfully withheld by insurance carriers.
