Helping Clients File Long-Term Disability Claims
In order for your long-term disability claim to be successful, every line of the forms have to be filled out correctly and submitted within specific timelines. The claim can be difficult to fill out, as 75 percent of claims are denied the first time they are applied for. Many of these claims tend to be approved after appeal when the initial problem was rectified.
Still, there are times when the claim will be initially turned down regardless of how detailed it was. Your attorney will then identify the issue and move forward with an appeal if you wish.
Here is what your Minnesota work comp attorney will do for you regarding your long-term disability claim:
- Determine your eligibility
- File all documentation within the specified deadlines
- File a claim that is accurate and complete
- Ensure that your medical records and work history are correct
While all of these steps are taken to lessen the burden on you and ensure accuracy, the case may still need to go through the appeals process. It can take 18 months for this process to be complete and is something that most applicants have to go through.
Standing With You Through The Appeals Process
When the denial comes, we are committed to fight for your rights and will file the appeal for you. We inform the insurance company that we intend to appeal the decision and will learn why the claim was denied and challenge the denial. When it was proven that the initial claim should not have been denied, the claim will most likely be approved so you can move forward with the healing process.
