Long-Term Disability Lawyer

Has your long-term disability claim been denied? At Willeford & Toledano in New Orleans, Louisiana, we understand the emotional and financial hardships associated with a denied claim for long-term disability (LTD) benefits. If your benefits have been denied or discontinued, you could lose more than your disability income. You could also lose your eligibility for employer-provided medical insurance or disability retirement benefits.

We help disabled employees obtain the benefits they need and deserve. We offer a free consultation to review your case and discuss your options. In addition to appealing a denied claim, our lawyers also help people apply for disability benefits.

Appealing Denied Long-Term Disability Claims

Long-term disability benefits may be denied for many different reasons:

  • An insurance company doctor may not agree with the opinion of your treating physician.
  • After two years of disability, the definition of disability may change under your long-term disability plan, making you ineligible.
  • The insurance company may deny your claim after approving it initially.

Insurance company doctors are paid to represent the interests of the insurance company instead of your interests. As a result, they may conduct minimal evaluations. Our lawyers will make sure that your medical condition is accurately reflected with appropriate documentation so that your claim will be approved. We are committed to helping you receive proper compensation for your disability and long-term needs.

Our attorneys are often successful at obtaining favorable results for our clients. We review all medical information associated with your case. We then identify and obtain appropriate medical documentation to support your claim.

We are experienced in appealing denied claims in long-term disability plans covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), as well as non-ERISA plans. If your application for LTD benefits has been denied or if benefits have stopped, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible. You have a limited time to appeal the decision and will need an experienced ERISA attorney to help you with your appeal.

We accept select long-term disability claim appeals on a contingency fee basis. We also represent clients on an hourly basis.
