Richmond Long Term Disability Attorney

Long term disability can happen to anyone, at any age. Accidental injuries, unexpected illnesses, and chronic health conditions can all leave you unable to work, jeopardizing your ability to provide for yourself and your loved ones. Employer-provided long term disability insurance can help offset your expenses, but accessing the benefits you are entitled to can prove challenging. At Kantor & Kantor, LLP, our Richmond long term disability attorneys provide trusted, professional legal representation to help you get the compensation you are entitled to in your claim.

Protecting Your Rights in Long Term Disability Claims

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), roughly 85% of private industry employees have long term disability insurance coverage available through their employer. These benefits can provide a lifeline when injuries or illnesses prevent you from working, providing you with the income you need to offset losses in wages.

Unfortunately, obtaining the benefits you are entitled to can prove challenging. At Kantor & Kantor, LLP, our Richmond long term disability attorneys provide the aggressive legal protection you need when disability claims are denied or delayed due to the following:  

  • Disagreements over the terms of the policy and benefit periods;
  • Disputes over the severity of your injuries or illness and whether your condition is covered;
  • Administrative issues concerning submitting the appropriate documents and applying within specific timeframes;
  • Denials or delays due to policy mismanagement and funding issues.

Get The Long Term Disability Benefits to Which You are Entitled

In many cases involving employer-funded benefit programs, such as long term disability benefits, complex federal laws apply. Long term disability claims in California are subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), which requires plan administrators to provide information about long term disability plan features and funding, along with guidelines for disputing claims.

At Kantor & Kantor, LLP, we have extensive experience in defending the rights of disabled clients under these laws and can provide the trusted legal guidance needed to resolve your claim in the most efficient and effective manner possible. Efforts our Richmond long term disability attorney can take on your behalf include:

  • Communicating with employers, plan administrators, and insurers;
  • Gathering the evidence needed to support your disability claim;
  • Following ERISA appeals guidelines in the event your claim is denied or disputed;
  • Filing a lawsuit to obtain the long term disability benefits you need.
