Minnesota Long Term Disability Lawyers

In Minnesota, from the bustling Twin Cities to the serene landscapes of the North Woods, residents filing a claim for long-term disability insurance are often surprised when their claim is denied, terminated or delayed with numerous requests for additional information.

Newfield Law Group guides residents of Minnesota through the intricate processes of both short-term and long-term disability insurance claims. We understand the impact of a denied claim on both the working person and their family’s financial situation. Fighting back when a claim has been denied is too important to try to manage on your own.

Navigating these claims involves dealing with complex systems, as insurance companies rigorously investigate each claim to find reasons for denials or delays. While these are routine practices for insurers, they pose substantial difficulties for individuals, impacting their personal lives and financial health. 

Why do insurance companies dispute long-term disability claims in Minnesota? For the insurance company and their representatives, this is how business is done. The fewer claims paid, the higher the insurance company’s profits. The fact of the claimant paying premiums for years, even decades, has no relation to whether or not a claim will be paid.

The Necessity of an ERISA Appeals Lawyer in Minnesota

For residents of Minnesota dealing with long-term disability claims, particularly those under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), securing specialized legal representation is essential. ERISA establishes a strict set of rules and deadlines for disability claims and appeals, presenting a demanding legal landscape that requires knowledgeable guidance. An experienced ERISA appeals lawyer is crucial for ensuring that your claim is meticulously prepared and robustly defended.

Submitting an application for long-term disability benefits requires precise and thorough documentation, critical for both the initial filing and any appeals. Any mistakes or omissions can significantly undermine the strength of a claim. Our firm specializes in identifying potential issues early on, working in collaboration with the claimant, their treating physician and other professionals to ensure that all supporting evidence is detailed and compelling.
