Nebraska Long Term Disability Lawyers

In Nebraska, from the vibrant streets of Omaha to the vast prairies of the Sandhills, residents facing long-term disability insurance claims encounter substantial challenges. Newfield Law Group represents Nebraska residents faced with navigating the complex terrain of both short-term and long-term disability insurance claims, recognizing the significant personal and financial impacts these issues can have.

The claims process is riddled with complications, as insurance companies implement detailed strategies to uncover reasons for denying or delaying payouts. These methods, while standard for the industry, impose significant burdens on individuals, affecting their financial stability and quality of life. Upon receiving a denial letter, it’s natural to wonder — why do insurance companies challenge long-term disability claims in Nebraska? And why would they deny a legitimate claim?

Insurance companies are structured like any other company: the goal is to maximize profits while minimizing costs. Insurance companies are happy to sell disability insurance policies, to individuals and to employers, but when it comes to paying benefits, the best outcome for the insurance company is to stall or deny paying disability benefits.

The Importance of an ERISA Appeals Lawyer in Nebraska

For residents of Nebraska dealing with long-term disability claims, particularly those governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), the expertise of a specialized attorney is crucial. ERISA prescribes a stringent set of rules and deadlines for filing disability claims and appeals, creating a complex legal framework that requires precise navigation. An experienced ERISA appeals lawyer is essential to ensure that your claim is thoroughly prepared and vigorously defended.

Submitting an application for long-term disability benefits requires careful and accurate documentation, critical for both the initial filing and any subsequent appeals. Unless you’ve done this before, you may not know just how easily any mistakes or missing information in your claim can put it in jeopardy

Newfield Law Group is proud of the track record we have for successfully representing claimants in ERISA appeals as well as private or individual disability policy claims. We proactively identify and address potential issues from the start, working in collaboration with healthcare providers to ensure that all supporting evidence is comprehensive and convincing.

How to Respond to a Denied Disability Claim in Nebraska

If your disability claim has been denied, it is imperative to act quickly and strategically 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 may potentially complicate your case further. Our firm’s extensive experience with ERISA appeals highlights the importance of a comprehensive and thoughtful approach, including the collection of additional, detailed information about your employment, the physical or cognitive demands of your job, and any crucial medical records that may have been overlooked initially.

We offer a free, no-obligation consultation to Nebraska residents to discuss your claim, examine the insurance company’s tactics, and determine your best options for effectively contesting their decision. The ERISA claims and appeals process is intricate and can be daunting, often requiring a level of expertise and strategic insight that is challenging to manage without professional assistance.

If your claim has been denied, or if the disability insurance company is asking for what seems like an extremely burdensome amount of information, your claim may be targeted for a denial. Call our office at 877-406-7883 to learn what you need to do to protect your claim. Deadlines are strict, so don’t wait to call.
