Menlo Park Long Term Disability Lawyers

Fighting For the Rights of Disabled Workers in Menlo Park, California

If you are a Bay Area worker who is no longer able to earn a living due to your long term disability, you may be entitled to benefits under your employer’s group welfare plan. For the most part, these plans are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), a notoriously complex federal law that is difficult for plan beneficiaries to navigate.

At Kantor & Kantor LLP, our dedicated Menlo Park long term disability attorneys have the skills and legal knowledge required to help our clients get the full disability compensation that they are owed. If your claim was denied, please do not delay in contacting our team today for an immediate case evaluation.

Know Why Your Claim Was Denied

To get the full and fair long term disability compensation that you rightfully deserve, you will need to know exactly why your initial claim was denied by the insurance company. You should receive a letter in the mail that clearly and specifically articulates the insurance company’s reasoning. If you do not receive such a letter, or if your denial letter does not make sense, you need to contact a lawyer immediately. Some of the most common reasons why disability claims are denied in California include:

  • The applicant’s income;
  • Alleged lies or misrepresentations during the application process;
  • Disputes regarding the severity of the disability;
  • Insufficient medical evidence to support the case;
  • Lack of sufficient vocational evidence to support the case;
  • Mistakes by an applicant or by the insurer; and
  • Unlawful, bad faith conduct by the insurer.
