The Necessity of an ERISA Appeals Lawyer in Ohio

For Ohio residents trying to manage their long-term disability claims, especially those governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), the help of an experienced disability insurance attorney can’t be overstated. This is complex law, bringing together insurance law, a federal law known as ERISA and contracts law, all at once.

When disability insurance policies are provided as part of a compensation package, they fall under ERISA, which sets a detailed framework of rules and deadlines for filing disability claims and appeals, presenting a challenging legal environment that demands skillful navigation.  

The application process for long-term disability benefits demands precise and comprehensive documentation, essential for both the initial filing and any appeals. Any deficiencies or inaccuracies in this documentation can severely undermine the success of a claim. Newfield Law Group  focuses on proactively addressing potential issues from the outset. The firm helps many claimants before they file a claim, to give their claim the greatest possible chance of success from the start.

How to Respond to a Denied Disability Claim in Ohio

If your disability claim has been denied or if you receive a letter asking for more information, your claim may be at risk. It is critical to act swiftly and strategically to protect your rights. If you’ve received a denial letter, it will detail the reasons for the denial and provide a strict deadline for filing an appeal. 

Handling an appeal on your own can be overwhelming and may potentially complicate your case further. What additional materials could you add to the claim? Did your doctor’s reports provide a way out for the insurance company? There are many facets to a disability claim you are not likely to be aware of.

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

We invite you to call the Newfield Law Group at 877-406-7883 to discuss your situation. There’s no obligation, and Jason Newfield will take the time to help you understand what options you have.
