What Do You Do When Your Claim Gets Denied?
If your disability claim has been denied by your employer or insurance carrier, there is one thing you must know: Many people with valid claims are turned down. This is not uncommon. It does not mean you have no other options. In many cases, an experienced attorney can help you get the benefits you need.
Here at Theisen & Associates in Fort Wayne, Indiana, we handle two types of claims:
- Private and employer-sponsored long-term disability (LTD) plans
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
Our lawyers will serve as your advocates, helping you fight for all of the benefits you deserve. We handle cases at any stage of the process, from the initial application to the review and reconsideration stage to the appeal itself.
Why Was Your Claim Denied?
If your claim did get denied, there are plenty of potential reasons. For instance, perhaps you did not provide proper medical evidence to back up that claim. This does not mean the evidence does not exist. Perhaps you simply did not know what paperwork to get. Maybe you forgot to include something you believed was already part of your case. In many instances, you can find a viable solution and rectify the error.
Another common problem is when you simply make paperwork errors. It does not take much to trigger a denial. Our attorneys can help you find and correct any mistakes.
