Short-Term Disability Lawyer
Was your short-term disability claim denied? Do not be discouraged. Many disabled employees whose disability claims have been denied are awarded benefits upon appeal, so long as the appeal is handled by an attorney qualified to handle Employee Retirement Security Income Act (ERISA) matters.
At Willeford & Toledano in New Orleans, Louisiana, our lawyers represent injured and ill employees who have been denied short-term disability benefits. Our attorneys have decades of experience helping disabled employees obtain the benefits they need and deserve. We offer a free consultation to review your case and discuss your options.
What To Do If Your Short-Term Disability Claim Is Denied
Short-term disability plans are offered to employees as part of employee welfare benefits plans. These plans may or may not be covered by the
Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Our lawyers have experience appealing disability claim denials in both ERISA and non-ERISA plans.
Short-term disability eligibility decisions may be made by your employer or the insurance company administering the plan. Our attorneys can assist you with the application process. If your claim has been denied, we can review it and determine what other documentation will ensure that your claim is approved.
You should contact a lawyer promptly if your application has been denied or if benefits have been stopped while you are still disabled. You may have a limited time to appeal the decision.
There is no fee for this preliminary review. We accept select short-term disability claim appeals on a contingency fee basis. We also represent clients on an hourly basis.
