Avoid Mistakes That Might Cause Delays or Denied Insurance Benefits
Insurance and ERISA law is a complex and nuanced practice. The average claimant — and even the most knowledgeable — might find it difficult to read and interpret their insurance policies, appeal procedures, and the laws that apply to their claims. It’s easy to make mistakes that result in delays, denied benefits, and unwanted litigation.
At Robinson & Warncke, our clients work closely with an experienced disability attorney who guides them through the entire claim process. We believe that building well-developed arguments and evidentiary records from day one of our clients’ claims puts them in the best possible situation and gives them the highest likelihood of success.
When the insurance companies deny our clients’ initial claims or try to terminate their benefits, we immediately step into action and assess their appeal rights. ERISA and other disability-related laws typically impose short filing deadlines on administrative insurance appeals. And you do not want to delay consulting with a disability attorney. When appropriate, we file comprehensive appeals for our clients that outline the insurance company’s errors. We also emphasize the severity of their conditions and eligibility for benefits.
Most importantly, our clients have peace of mind during this difficult process. We communicate regularly with our clients, updating them on their claims’ progression, their legal options, and provide insight into the legal and medical issues that impact their claims. Because we are selective with the cases we handle, our clients know they have a disability attorney with the time and resources necessary to fully prepare and develop their insurance claims.
Disability and Insurance Claim Strategies That Are Tailored to Your Unique Needs
For many of our clients, it’s difficult to acknowledge that their medical conditions and other factors prevent them from doing the jobs they love. No one wants to face the uncertainty and stress of a serious health issue. While an insurance claim can’t magically restore your health, it can provide you and your family with the financial security and time you need to heal and rebuild. At Robinson & Warncke, we help our clients face these difficult decisions and regain control.
As you consider your future, it’s in your best interest to request a consultation with an experienced disability attorney. We’ll listen to your concerns, learn about your medical conditions and prognoses, and review your insurance documents. Then, based upon our experience and your personal information, we’ll explain your legal options. We can also outline any potential challenges that might complicate your claim.
