Has Your Long-term Disability Claim Been Denied?
Seek Help with Our Maryland Administrative Appeals Attorneys
You have the opportunity to appeal a denial by your long-term disability insurance carrier. If you do so, we encourage you to retain a lawyer with experience in disability law to have on your side throughout the process. A knowledgeable and dedicated attorney could make all the difference in the end result of your case.
At The Bernstein Law Offices, we have been able to help numerous disabled individuals achieve reversals to initially denied claims. We understand how state laws in Maryland as well as federal laws, such as the 1974 Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), work. Let our attorneys assist you in navigating the tedious administrative appeals process.
What should I expect in the administrative appeals process?
You have a limited amount of time to request an appeal after your initial claim is denied. There is a deadline that is written in your policy and your denial letter. You should act quickly to retain a Maryland Social Security disability attorney who can help. Before you can file a lawsuit to appeal the denial, you must undergo all the necessary steps outlined by your policy. Our lawyers can help you through the administrative review process, and file an appeal if your claim is still denied.
The evidence you present in your claims file - including all medical and vocational documentation - should be as complete as possible. Since ERISA only allows the court to review information submitted in the application, your file must be as compelling and as thorough as possible.
Work with our attorneys to help you strengthen your case during the appeals phase.
