Nevada Long Term Disability Lawyers

In Nevada, from the bustling energy of Las Vegas to the serene landscapes of the Great Basin, residents dealing with long-term disability insurance claims face numerous challenges. Newfield Law Group helps residents of Nevada navigate the intricate processes of both short-term and long-term disability insurance claims, understanding the profound personal and financial impacts these issues can have.

The process of filing for disability claims and managing an appeal if the claim is denied is laden with complications, as insurance companies devote enormous resources to find reasons for denying or delaying payouts. While these practices are routine for the insurance industry, they create significant hurdles for individuals, impacting their lives and financial well-being. 

This situation leads to a critical question: Why do insurance companies dispute long-term disability claims in Nevada for both private or individual disability policies or group disability policies? These companies operate under a business model that prioritizes profit, often leading to reduced payouts, a practice that fundamentally conflicts with the intended purpose of insurance—to provide necessary financial support during critical times.

The Importance of an ERISA Appeals Lawyer in Nevada

For Nevada residents dealing with group long-term disability claims, where their policy is part of their employee benefits package, this is especially challenging. Group disability policies are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).Having an experienced ERISA attorney is crucial to ensuring that your claim is accurately prepared and robustly defended. ERISA sets a stringent framework of rules and deadlines for filing disability claims and appeals, creating a challenging environment that demands expert navigation. 

The application process for long-term disability benefits requires meticulous and comprehensive documentation, essential for both the initial application and any appeals. Inaccuracies or gaps in this documentation can severely impact the success of a claim. Our firm focuses on preemptively identifying potential issues, collaborating closely with your treating physician and other professionals as needed to ensure that all supporting evidence is thorough and persuasive.

How to Respond to a Denied Disability Claim in Nevada

If your disability claim has been denied, it’s critical to act quickly and strategically to protect your rights. The denial letter will detail the reasons for the denial and specify a firm deadline for filing an appeal. It’s not as simple as an insurance claim for a homeowner or auto policy. There’s a great deal at risk for the claimant, none for the insurance company.

Jason Newfield has more than two decades of  experience with ERISA appeals  and knows the importance of a strategic and detailed approach, which includes gathering additional, specific information about your job, the demands of your role, and any critical medical records that may have been initially missed.

We offer a free, no-obligation consultation to Nevada residents to discuss your claim, explore the insurance company’s tactics, and evaluate your options for effectively contesting their decision. The ERISA claims and appeals process is complex and requires a level of expertise and strategic planning that can be overwhelming without professional guidance.

A claim denial is complex, but you don’t have to do this on your own. Call Newfield Law Group at 877-406-7883 to discuss your case and how we can help.
