Utah Long Term Disability Lawyers

In Utah, from bustling urban areas like Salt Lake City to the stunning natural landscapes of Zion National Park, residents preparing to file a claim with long-term disability insurance companies face a variety of unexpected challenges. Newfield Law Group represents residents of Utah faced with navigating the intricate procedures involved in both short-term and long-term disability insurance claims.

Preparing to file a disability claim successfully may seem simple if you take the insurance company’s instructions to simply upload certain reports into a customer portal. But to succeed, a disability claim requires navigating through dense regulations, as insurance companies employ strategies at every step of the claims process to deny claims.

This may be business as usual for insurance companies, but for you, it’s personal. At Newfield Law Group, we understand and respect that. Our clients know we will aggressively represent them, drawing on more than two decades of experience battling with every major disability insurance company. We know the strategies and tools they use to deny your claim, and prepare claims, appeals and when needed, litigation, for our clients with the utmost of care. We know what the disability insurance claims examiner needs to approve your claim, and work to achieve that. 

While denying claims are common in this area, they create significant challenges for individuals, affecting their financial stability and overall quality of life. Why do insurance companies dispute long-term disability claims in Utah? The more people give up and don’t fight for their claim, the greater the insurance company’s profits are. Your denial is wrapped up in a lot of legalese, but the reason for the denial is that simple.

The Importance of an ERISA Appeals Lawyer in Utah

For Utah residents dealing with long-term disability claims, particularly those covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), the knowledge and skill of an experienced disability attorney is vital. This federal law was created to protect employee benefits but has been subverted by insurance companies to maintain control over long term disability insurance policies issued by employers. 

ERISA outlines a strict set of rules and deadlines for filing disability claims and appeals, creating a complex legal framework that requires expert navigation. An experienced ERISA appeals lawyer is crucial for ensuring that your claim is meticulously prepared and effectively defended.

The application for long-term disability benefits requires precise and comprehensive documentation, critical for both the initial application and any appeals. Errors or gaps in this documentation can significantly undermine the success of a claim. Our firm takes a proactive approach in identifying and addressing potential issues early and we stay with your claim and you every step of the way.
