Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI or SSI) are difficult to obtain. There are deadlines for filing, endless paperwork to complete, and complicated guidelines for determining whether or not you will be eligible. A qualified social security lawyer with specialized knowledge in Social Security Disability law is far more likely to obtain the maximum benefits than a lawyer without the same experience. It is even more important to have a successful litigation attorney on your side if you have been denied ss disability benefits. Let one of our winning social security lawyers fight for the disability benefits you deserve.

Long Term Disability

It has become a common trend for long term disability insurance carriers to deny valid disability benefits claims either initially or after paying for a year or two, asserting that the person’s condition has improved or that the definition of disability has changed. While their actions would have previously been considered insurance bad faith practices, the LTD and STD insurance companies contend that state insurance bad faith law does not apply to their activities. As a result, individuals are having to navigate the complexities of the federal court system. You need an experienced ERISA long term disability lawyer to fight for your rights.
