Long-Term Disability Insurance

Few things are worse than becoming too disabled to work, but having your long-term disability insurance claim denied or terminated is one of those things.  Having an injury or sickness which limits or prevents your ability to work in your occupation creates a litany of personal and professional issues, not the least of which is whether you will succeed in obtaining your long-term disability benefits.  For more than 20 years, the attorneys at Schwartz law have been protecting professionals throughout New York and the United States, making sure those professionals receive their long-term disability benefits and preventing their  long-term disability benefits from being cut off.  We currently represent more than 300 professionals all over the country in the following areas of long-term disability insurance:

 

  • Long-term disability claims consultation
  • Preparation and submission of long-term disability claims
  • Preventing termination of long-term disability claims
  • Representation during field interviews
  • IME/EME management

  • Obtaining lump sum settlements of long-term disability claims without lawsuits
  • Long-term disability lawsuits in federal and state court
  • Long-term disability lawsuit trials and appeals
  • Representing private practices in connection with a partner or owner who is suffering from a long-term disability
