Long Term Disability Lawyer

Many people find themselves in a position where they can no longer perform all or some of the duties of their job because of a disabling condition. There are several different benefits that could be available to you, if you are unable to perform your job. These benefits include Workers Compensation, Social Security Disability (SSD), or Long Term Disability.

If your employer provides long term disability insurance, or you have a private long term disability plan, you would expect the insurance coverage to provide vital financial support when illnesses or injuries keep you out of work. But insurance carriers are private corporations, and the policy decisions they make are often based on profit margins – not your best interests. Our Long Term Disability Lawyers are here to help you file a compelling appeal if you were denied long term disability coverage, and get you the compensation you need.

At Fields Law Firm, our long term disability benefits attorneys help disability clients throughout the United States, and want to help you get the full value of your long term disability plan. If you have questions, we have answers – no matter where you are in the claim or long term disability appeal process. Just call 1-888-343-5375 or fill out a free case review request form to Get Fields!

Long Term Disability Client Testimonial

“I had back surgery in April 2014. Prior to which I had been on 4 pain medications, in extreme pain and desperation. I exhausted the short term disability benefits because I was still recovering and still on nerve pain medication. This nerve pain med had serious side effects and the doctor had to taper that med gradually from my body. I was not ready to go back to work because mentally the drug had countless effects on me.

When I applied for long term disability benefits, the insurance company used an uninformed lazy doctor to go through my medical records for a lengthy 6 weeks to reject my application. I was devastated and swore revenge. I Googled Fields Law and luckily they came to my rescue. Their Fields Law team was really good, kind, reassuring to me. They worked with my primary physician and won the appeal for me. Thanks to Fields Law I got my long term disability check from the greedy insurance company. Thank you Fields Law.”

What Are The Steps to Receive Long Term Disability Benefits?

First, find out if you have long term disability coverage. Did you buy a policy on your own? Or, does your employer sponsor a long term disability policy as part of an employee benefit package? If you aren’t sure, ask your Human Resources department at work.

Next, make sure that you have your doctor’s support. It’s important that you are treating with your doctor, and that they agree that you are unable to work due to your injury or disability. Your most valuable asset in a successful long term disability claim for benefits is the opinion of your treating physician.

Application. Request an application for benefits from the long term disability insurance company. The application will ask for biographical information, as well as information about your disability, condition, or illness. It is important to take the time to read through the application and then fill it out completely and accurately. You may even request an attorneys help at this stage.

After you submit your application, the insurance company will review your application and the other material you submitted with your application. The insurance reviews this material in order to make a decision on whether or not to pay you benefits. The insurance company may have a medical expert review your records and make determinations about your conditions. The insurance company will likely request information about your job duties from your employer. The insurance company may have a vocational expert review the job description and other information about your job.

Waiting for the insurance company to make a decision can be agonizing. Although the insurer typically has 45 days to make a decision, they will likely request either one or two 30-day extensions to make their decision. Unfortunately, it can take up to 105 days to get an answer from the insurance company.

The Denial. Not surprisingly, many people are denied long term disability benefits at the application stage. The insurance company will mail you a written denial letter. The denial letter should include the reason for the decision and reference the parts of the policy in which the decision is based. Additionally, the denial letter should contain information about your right to receive, free of charge, copies of documents and records relevant to your claim. This is often referred to as the “claim file.”

Submitting an Appeal. The long term disability benefits denial letter should inform you what the next steps are. The denial letter will usually inform you that you have 180 days to appeal the insurance company’s decision. In other words, you have a second chance to convince the insurance company that you should receive long term disability benefits.

Get an attorney. It’s important to hire an attorney as soon as possible once you receive a denial letter. Typically, you only have one chance to build your record to get your long term disability claim approved.

Even if you receive a second denial, it’s still not over. The insurance company’s second denial letter should inform you of your right to bring a civil action for benefits under section 502(a) of ERISA. The rules and regulations that govern these claims are very difficult to understand, which is why it’s important to have an experienced long term disability attorney on your side.

Fortunately, you’ve found Fields Law Firm. We understand the entire process from submitting applications, to writing compelling appeals, negotiating substantial settlements, and filing ERISA lawsuits.

Long Term Disability Client Success Story

A woman was employed as a clinical assistant with a major healthcare provider in the twin cities. She loved her work assisting physicians and their patients, but became disabled. The woman had been suffering from fibromyalgia, untreated spina bifida, chronic migraines, and had widespread issues with her spine and bones. She initially applied for long term disability benefits from the insurer, but they denied her claim stating that her medical information didn’t support a finding of functional impairment.

The woman knew she wanted to appeal the decision, but didn’t know how to go about doing it. She learned that Fields Law had a proven record of success at winning benefits. After our initial consultation with the client, our attorneys immediately began writing her appeal. We argued that the medical evidence conclusively established her disability, noting the insurer failed to give our client’s chronic pain due consideration.

However, the long term disability insurance company ignored our arguments and denied the appeal, avoiding having to pay out on our client’s claim. We immediately filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court. We made significant preparations for litigation, and the insurance company eventually began negotiating a settlement. The insurer agreed to pay out a lump sum on our client’s long term benefits claim, and she was able to move forward with her life and focus on taking care of herself.

How Do I Apply For Long Term Disability Benefits?

Individuals may go about applying for Long Term Disability benefits in a variety of ways. This includes applying directly to your Long Term Disability insurance provider or through your own employer. If you know what insurance company administers and provides your Long Term Disability policy, you should contact them directly and indicate that you wish to apply for Long Term Disability benefits.

Some of these insurance companies include MetLife, UNUM, CIGNA, Prudential, The Hartford, The Standard, Madison National Life, Liberty Mutual, Aetna, Sedgewick, and so on. If you are not sure who your Long Term Disability insurance provider is, you should contact your employer. You can often find out this information from your manager, supervisor, or Human Resources department.

Once you know what insurance company provides your Long Term Disability benefits, you should file an application for benefits. Upon applying for benefits, most Long Term Disability policies require you to provide “proof of loss.” This means that you must provide the insurance company with specific reasons and documentation of why you are no longer able to work and should be entitled to Long Term Disability benefits.

When applying, most insurance companies have you complete various types of forms. These forms can include questionnaires about your health and may ask for information regarding your employment, medical treatment and providers, and personal activities. Along with completing forms, insurance companies may also have you complete health and release of information authorizations so they can obtain medical and other information to further investigate your claim.

What Happens After I Submit My Application For Long Term Disability Benefits?

After all of your forms and authorizations have been submitted to the insurance company, your claim will be opened and investigated. Often times, a specific case worker is assigned to your claim and oversees the process. Keep in mind, your case worker works for the insurance company, not you.

This case worker may request outstanding or updated medical information, send your claim to third party physicians for further review, or have your claim forwarded for a vocational review. Insurance companies may also contact your doctors for additional information. Also, it is important to remember that when you file an application for Long Term Disability benefits, you may be placed under surveillance.

Depending upon the type of Long Term Disability plan or policy you have, there may be a deadline in which the insurance company must come to a decision to either grant or deny your benefits. Applications for benefits are often denied for a variety of reasons, which can be very frustrating when you don’t understand the basis for the decision.

Reasons the insurance company will deny your claim typically include:

  • Finding that you are not disabled, despite your doctor’s opinions.
  • Stating that you do not have limitations or restrictions severe enough to limit your ability in working.
  • Claiming your disability was due to a pre-existing condition.

You should contact a Long Term Disability lawyer as soon as you receive the denial letter, so that they can help you get started on your appeal. The denial letter will include the deadline for submitting your appeal, typically 180 days. The actual deadline date may be based on the date your current disability payments will be discontinued or the date of the denial letter.

Although 180 days seems like a generous amount of time, there is a lot of work to be done in that time frame. It takes time to request medical records and employment records to support your claim. You may also need additional time to seek medical treatment or obtain medical testing to support your claim.

Whether you have not yet applied, or have applied and you were denied your long term disability benefits, we can help. We can assist you in the application process by going over all the forms with you and obtaining supportive medical and vocational information for your claim. If you have already been denied, we can help with the long term disability appeal process.

I had the pleasure to work with Michael and Annie on my LTD case. When my claim was denied by the insurance carrier, Michael didn't hesitate to take them on with an appeal. He worked diligently on the appeal and ultimately won this for me. Mind you, this wasn't a huge case but he treated me like it was and as if I was the only case he was representing. He kept me abreast of vital information, it was clear that he knew his stuff and wasn't afraid to take on the big insurance company. Michael was much more than I ever expected given that our relationship was entirely remote, handled by telephone and email only. Not only is he a strong lawyer, he treated me with compassion and respect. I am beyond pleased with him and the Fields Law team. Michael cares about his clients and he gets the job done for them because he knows how impactful an injury can be to both a person's well-being and their financial security. I highly recommend Michael and Fields Law whether you are local to their Minnesota offices or out of state like myself.read more

Fields Law Firm is great. Patrick Kramer, my lawyer, is fantastic. He and his legal assistant Samantha K. have handled my case for several years. They have kept me informed every step of the way. They are both easy to contact. I have both of their phone numbers and email addresses and they respond promptly to any messages I leave. Without their help I would not have been able to get the disability company to fulfill their promises. It is a relief to leave all the dealings with the disability insurance company in their hands.read more

It is very difficult for the average disabled person to battle the disability insurance and Social Security disability industries. I was very sick, exhausted, and stressed out about being denied and told that I can work by someone who doesn't even know me! The paperwork was daunting and had to be filled out multiple times. I chose Field's Law Firm after finding them online. They took over my claims and handled all of the paperwork and appeals that were necessary. They even went to a hearing with me to the Social Security Judge. Field's also kept me in the loop every step of the way. This allowed me to focus more on myself and greatly reduced my financial anxiety. They don't get paid unless you get paid. You truly have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

I recently had a stroke and had to leave my job and had to go on short term Disability which turned into Long term disability and this was a challenge. It was so challenging dealing with Doctors then with LTD it seemed that they were always trying to find ways to stop my disability. So I went online and researched Attorneys for LTD cases and Fields had great reviews and I want to say this was the best decision ever Blake and Annie have been my dream team and I have not been the best client as far as being compliant I have had so many issues in the last mot from health to Money issues and they stayed on me never waivered. They were so patient and compassionate Annie's voice at times soothed me because I was so ready to give up its very stressful but they made me feel lighter like I wasn't alone and they made it happen they won my case. I am so fortunate to have found this law firm and have the super team of Blake and Annie you guys are my heroes you have saved the day in my case the year .

Let's be honest, nobody wants to need a lawyer or be put in the place where you have to search for one. And if that time comes, I hope you look to Fields Law for that! I was put in a bad spot with loosing my credit due to a companies mishandlement of my financial information. Not good, and this was a very big company. So my worries were who would be willing and capable to take on such a job. I searched and called and spent many hours trying to find that company. But when I was referred to Fields, my worries were gone! I was instantly connected with Blake my attorney, who assured me I was in the right place with the right people! The positive attitude from absolutely every person I worked with and the knowledge they possessed was awesome. They helped me understand everything in a way that I could get; since some of the terminology and process wasn't my strong point! My case was going to be a long one; and knowing this there was not a single point that I felt I wasn't in the loop. They were honest and fair to both sides and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing help! Thanks again Fields Law!read more

One of my big concerns when researching for a group to help me with my short and long term insurance claims was if it was going to be an issue with a group that was not in my state of NY. It was not an issue at all. The Fields Law Group was so helpful right from start to finish of the claims. No matter who I was dealing within the group they exceeded my expectations repeatedly. Even when there was turnover of tasks within the group itself the preparation and execution of the change went flawlessly and communication lines were never dropped.I have already recommended Fields Law Group to people I thought they could help and will continue to do so.

Blake Bauer and his team wear amazing! I live in Georgia and called several law firms before I found Fields Law Firm on the Internet. As soon as I called, I knew this was the firm I was going with. Blake was responsive, knowledgeable, forthright and a pleasure to work with. I felt extremely confident with them handling my long-term disability case. Thank you Blake and Samantha for everything!read more

Fields Law Firm was engagement to represent us in a disability appeal case. From the initial contact with the firm addressing our preliminary questions and concerns the representatives were forthcoming and informative. Upon engaging the firm to represent our interest, a strategy was developed for our appeal with clear action items, milestones, and timelines. At no time did we ever feel as if we did not know the status of our case or what was happening.The firm was very clear about the information and items needed to support the case and communications were clear and supportive. The timeline and expectations for requests were clearly presented in layman's terms. Any concerns which arose during the execution of the appeal were dealt with quickly and effectively. We had a successful outcome to our case and I recommend the Fields Law Firm.read more

If you are looking for the best call Fields Law Firm.read more

Fields Law Firm was a God send when I found them. My long term disability insurance I had paid for through my employer for the extra long term disability insurance tried to get out of paying me what they had committed to. When I first spoke to one of Fields representatives very soon after I initially contacted them (on a Sunday evening) I immediately felt better and reassured that Fields Law Firm was genuinely concerned about helping me get my LTD benefits continued. And they did a great job! The folks there that worked on my case were very kind and compassionate. I would definitely recommend Fields Law Firm if you need legal help.read more

These are the kind of people that restore your faith in the belief that there ARE ethical and good caring lawyers out there.read more

I am still trying to figure out how to put into words the amazing work of Samantha and attorney, Mark. They are absolutely amazing and they validate your feelings when you are struggling with all of the challenges that accompany a disability claim. I never expected that the breaks would be placed so abruptly on my very active life and thriving career. However, that’s what happens when we are unexpectedly struck with medical circumstances. If it had not been for Mark as my attorney, I really don’t think I would have survived financially because ultimately my case was ruled in my favor. It was an extremely complex and difficult case to prove. Samantha really knows her job well and keeps things moving forward. They made a very emotionally distressing situation bearable! If you need someone to tell you honestly and navigate the complexities of ambiguous terms of you policy while making sure you receive pay out for what is owed to you, you absolutely will not find a better team! I am so grateful-they’ll never know how much they changed my life! Thank you Samantha and Mark and Fields Law Firm!read more

I cannot say enough about Fields law firm. Chase Hedrick is an outstanding and compassionate attorney with a great deal of integrity. Do not hesitate to hire Fields to represent you. Fields won my appeal for me against a carrier with one of the worst reputations in the LTD industry. Be wary of other west coast firms that want to charge outrageous fees on all your future benefits and keep you on the hook for years to come! A+++read more

Fields Law Firm rocks! Jodi is awesome.Fields was instrumental in helping me receive a fully favorable decision toward obtaining my disability settlement. On my own, I was denied benefits from disability. My health history didn't change, but having Fields Law Firm in my corner got me correct decision I couldn't.After filing for benefits and going through the process of seeing the social security doctors I had been sent to, I was extremely frustrated to find out the injuries I suffer from were not worthy of a decision in my favor. The team at Fields Law Firm worked diligently on my behalf to get all my medical records in order and presented to the judge at my disability hearing.Even after receiving a favorable decision my monthly payments as well as my back payments were not coming in a timely manner- actually didn't come at all. Jodi, at Fields was on it and relentless in her efforts until I finally did start to receive monthly payments and eventually, a large back payment sum from the years my case spent sitting going nowhere.Pretty simple- by myself following the steps and procedures to get benefits, I got nowhere and denied. With Fields Law Firm, I got a fully favorable decision and the benefits I need to help support my family's financial success.Thank you Fields for all the time and effort you put in to help me through this chapter of my life.read more
