If you have been denied Long Term Disability benefits, you may be wondering whether to hire an LTD attorney to handle the appeal of that denial. While it is possible to handle the various appeals on your own, it is not advisable to do so.
There are many pitfalls a layperson can overlook to the detriment to their case in the long run. Once the final appeal is denied, there is no more opportunity to add evidence to the record which would eventually go before a judge. There are no do-overs.
It is very important to build your claim as strongly as possible and as early in the process as possible. An experienced attorney at Herbert M. Hill, P.A. can help you navigate this complicated process to do just that.
The federal law governing most of these kinds of cases, known as the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), is extremely complicated and ever-evolving. Our attorneys stay abreast of these changes and apply them to your claim.
Insurance companies also tend to harass unrepresented claimants in an effort to exhaust their efforts to build their claim. They employ unfair evidence collection, deny claims for invalid reasons, and/or cause unreasonable delays in the claim process. These kinds of tactics are not tolerated in our practice.
