Disability Lawyers for Business & Licensed Professionals
Executives, attorneys, physicians, and dentists generally enjoy higher income levels. However, the “good life” can come to a sudden end when an injury occurs or when a serious illness is diagnosed. Their employers’ handling and disbursement of disability, pension, and additional benefits are governed by ERISA.
Federal law explains the rights that all levels of employees have when filing for disability. It spells out the strict timelines and information necessary for submitting evidence. However, following these rules to the letter does not guarantee success. Many claims are turned down initially. While discouraging, it is important that applicants do not give up.
The process for filing for disability insurance typically proceeds as follows:
- The disabling incident happens
- You find a qualified ERISA lawyer in San Francisco
- We file a disability insurance claim with your insurance provider
- If the claim is denied, we file an insurance claim appeal with your provider
- If the appeal if denied, we can file a law suit in Federal Court against your insurance provider
- If the law suit is denied, we can file an appeal with the US Court of Appeals
At our law firm, our San Francisco ERISA lawyers will remain at your side throughout the entire claims process. From the initial application for benefits and possible denial, to appeals and courtroom litigation, we will fight for the benefits that you are entitled to. Regardless of your income and savings, you should not have to tap into a nest egg to cover expenses when you are entitled to receive benefits under ERISA law.
