Disability denial of any kind is a serious problem that affects many hardworking Americans. After all, disability insurance is there for a reason: to provide income to disabled men and women who are prevented from working at their jobs because of a long-term illness or injury.
Unfortunately, not all insurers are created equal. Further, not all insurers are looking out for the best interests of the men and women they insure. In some cases, insurers may unfairly deny people’s disability claims. When that happens, it’s important to appeal the denial – but you shouldn’t have to go through that process on your own.
Let our seasoned disability denial attorneys make it easier for you by dealing with the insurance companies so that you can get the disability benefits you may be entitled to.

That said, it can leave you frustrated and confused about the appeals process, angry about an appeals decision, and/or fearful of how you’ll manage to pay your bills with little-to-no income coming in. But being denied once – or even more than once – doesn’t mean it’s over. You may very well indeed have a valid claim; often, disability denials are based on a small technicality or because of missing medical information in your application.
