Why would an insurance company dispute a long-term disability claim in Georgia? 

The answer is simple: the insurance business model is based on maximizing profits, often by minimizing claim payouts, a practice that directly contradicts the foundational purpose of insurance—to provide support during times of need.

The Importance of an ERISA Appeals Lawyer in Georgia

If you live in Georgia and are dealing with long-term disability claims, especially those under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), the need for experienced legal representation is paramount. ERISA delineates strict procedures and deadlines for disability claims and appeals, creating a complex legal landscape that demands expert navigation. An experienced ERISA appeals lawyer can provide invaluable assistance, ensuring that your claim is effectively prepared, presented, and defended.

The application for long-term disability benefits requires meticulous and comprehensive documentation, critical for both the initial filing and any subsequent appeals. Failure to provide thorough and accurate documentation can critically undermine a claim. Our firm specializes in preemptively addressing potential issues, collaborating with medical professionals to ensure that all evidence submitted robustly supports your claim.

Responding to a Denied Disability Claim in Georgia

It’s frightening to receive a denial letter, when you’ve been paying premiums for years and were counting on receiving benefits to pay your bills.  However, it is crucial to act swiftly and decisively to protect your rights. The denial letter will outline the reasons for the denial and set a strict deadline for filing an appeal. Navigating this appeal process alone can be overwhelming and potentially lead to further complications. 

Newfield Law Group’s extensive experience with disability appeals underscores the importance of a detailed approach, necessitating the submission of additional, specific information beyond the initial claim. This often includes detailed job descriptions, the physical or mental demands of your job, and any crucial medical records that may have been previously overlooked.

As a national firm, we offer a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss your claim, the strategies employed by the insurance company, and your options for challenging their decision. The landscape of ERISA claims and appeals is markedly different from ordinary litigation, a fact that many of our clients, including those with backgrounds in legal or insurance fields, find surprising.

If you are preparing to file a disability claim, or if your claim has been denied, we invite you to contact Newfield Law Group at 877-406-7883 to discuss your situation with an experienced disability insurance attorney.
