If a large insurance company has denied you long term disability insurance, it’s time to call a long term disability lawyer in Dearborn with a winning track record to help you get justice. Long term disability claims are often denied on the first attempt or canceled after the first six months due to ERISA (The Employee Retirement and Income Security Act) being stilted in favor of the insurance companies.
If you experience injustice at the hands of an insurance company that denies or unfairly cancels your claim, you should contact a law firm serving Dearborn, MI, like Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. Our social security disability lawyers can also assist you with filing your initial claim if you are unable to work due to injuries or illness.
When a Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim is denied, you have 60 days in Michigan to request an appeal. At this point, you should seek legal representation and file the appeal immediately after you receive your denial. Don’t file a brand new claim or delay the appeal process because this will result in a loss of appeal rights, and you’ll have to start again.
Upon finding out your claim is denied, make sure you find out why it has been rejected. Consider hiring an attorney to help you with the appeal process and file your appeal.
There are four levels to the appeal process in the state of Michigan.
To move forward with an appeal for a denied disability claim, contact a reputable disability law firm with years of experience serving Dearborn Heights.
