Disability Benefits Denied
When your insurance disability carrier has denied your claim, you need an experienced lawyer with a thorough knowledge of the law to help you obtain benefits. You may be entitled to disability benefits from your insurance carrier.
When an insurance carrier denies your claim, the reviewer is required by law to provide you with the following information:
- the specific reason why your claim was denied
- the specific provision in the policy which enabled the insurance to deny your claim
- the information or documentation you need to provide to make the claim valid
- a detailed account of how to get your claim reviewed once you have the information or documentation
- disclosure regarding your right to obtain the information the carrier used to review and deny your claim
- disclosure regarding your right to bring a lawsuit under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) when you have exhausted your administrative remedies with the carrier
When you prove that the insurance carrier acted in bad faith and did not honor the terms of the coverage, you may be entitled to compensatory and punitive damages.

Many insurance companies are only interested in one thing—their bottom line. The more they pay you, the less profit they make for their investors. Insurance companies train their claims adjusters to minimize dollar-for-dollar damages. That is why you need a lawyer—to level the odds against the insurance agents and obtain the best possible insurance settlement.
