5 Myths About Long-term Disability
Wrong. The insurance company does not have the final say on your disability claim. You still have options that may result in the reinstatement of your disability claim or a settlement with the insurance company. Discover what your options are by calling Samfiru Tumarkin LLP immediately at 1-855-821-5900 to arrange a free consultation. Don’t walk away from money that your insurer owes you.
False. Most appeals do not work. When your claim is cut off or denied, the insurance company will encourage you to use their internal appeals process. You are asking the very same people who denied your long-term disability claim in the first place to change their mind! Insurance companies are banking on you appealing, and getting rejected over and over again until you give up. The appeals process can take months or years, and drag out the process until you run out of time to seek our help.
Insurance companies will provide you with many excuses for not paying out on long-term disability claims. They will suggest that you are not totally disabled, do not have enough medical support, or are disqualified because of a pre-existing condition. Your insurer will deny your appeals, and ignore your protests. Based on our experience, insurance companies HATE legal claims. It costs them money to fight our team. We resolve disability disputes quickly and efficiently by focusing on the insurer’s vulnerabilities.
NO! There are strict deadlines for starting a legal claim for disability payments. You have two years from the moment of denial to file a claim against the insurance company. Your insurer will push you towards their internal appeals process in an attempt to run out the clock on legal action. Don’t let that happen! Call Samfiru Tumarkin LLP at 1-855-821-5900 or fill out this form.
