In Oregon, from the dynamic city  of Portland to the rugged beauty of the Cascade Mountains, residents whose long-term disability insurance claims have been denied face a significant financial challenge.

Why do insurance companies contest long-term disability claims in Oregon?

Insurance companies prioritize their own profits, which leads to wrongfully denied claims. There is no penalty for an insurance company to deny a claim, and no damages can be levied for the losses experienced by a denied claimant.

The Necessity of an ERISA Appeals Lawyer in Oregon

For Oregon residents handling long-term disability claims, particularly those governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), securing knowledgeable legal representation is crucial. ERISA sets a detailed framework of rules and strict deadlines for filing disability claims and appeals, presenting a complex legal environment that is challenging to anyone who has not devoted years to this area of the law. An experienced ERISA appeals lawyer is essential to ensure that your claim is meticulously prepared and robustly defended.

Applying for long-term disability benefits demands thorough and accurate documentation, vital for both the initial application and any subsequent appeals. Any discrepancies or gaps in this documentation can significantly undermine the effectiveness of a claim. Our firm proactively addresses potential issues from the outset, working in close collaboration with healthcare providers to ensure that all supporting evidence is comprehensive and persuasive.

How to Respond to a Denied Disability Claim in Oregon

If your disability claim has been denied, it’s critical to respond swiftly and strategically to protect your rights. The denial letter will specify the reasons for the denial and provide a strict deadline for filing an appeal. Tackling this appeal on your own can be overwhelming and may potentially complicate your case further. 

The Newfield Law Group has extensive experience with ERISA appeals and takes a detailed and informed approach, including gathering additional, specific information about your employment, the demands of your job, and any essential medical records that may have been initially overlooked.
