Long Term Disability Lawyers with a National Reputation
Get the Benefits You Deserve with Dedicated LTD Lawyers on Your Side
Being unable to work due to a serious injury or disability can be a frightening and frustrating experience. It can be difficult to focus on your recovery or everyday life with the worry of how you will pay your bills hanging over your head. You may be able to find financial relief through the long term disability programs often offered by employers. As a covered member of a LTD plan, you are entitled to a percentage of your income, a fact that can provide a great deal of financial and emotional relief in many situations.
While your LTD plan does entitle you to financial assistance when you are unable to work, obtaining your benefits is not always an easy process. Help is available, however; at the law firm of Burke, Harvey & Frankowski, LLC, our long term disability lawyers have the experience and knowledge needed to help you address a wide range of LTD matters and pursue the support you are entitled to. With more than 50 years of combined experience, our attorneys have helped clients across the United States recover LTD benefits in even the most difficult situations.
LTD Lawyers Fighting for Financial Assistance You’ve Earned
Many claims are initially denied by plan administrators, while others are approved at rates that are lower than appropriate. Our firm understands the difficulties you face while pursuing benefits. Whether you need assistance completing your initial claim, or have already been denied a claim for benefits, we work to help you file the necessary paperwork to move on to the next step in the benefits claim process.
Insurers often require a great deal of documentation and proof of your condition, information that can be difficult to find in even the best circumstances. Our staff will carefully explore every aspect of your case and help you obtain the information you need to complete your claim or appeal. We also offer advice on the most effective methods of filing your paperwork, and work to complete your claim in the manner that provides the best possible chance of success.
Has Your Claim for LTD Benefits Been Denied? Call Us Today.
Receiving notice that your claim for LTD benefits has been denied can be a frustrating experience. Fortunately, your quest for benefits does not end with an initial denial notice. Instead, you have the option to file an appeal, and eventually have the right to have your case heard before a federal judge.
If you have been denied an initial claim for benefits, do not panic – call us. We’ve helped thousands of disabled individuals nationwide recover the benefits they deserve.
To help reduce some of your worry, we offer free consultations and will represent you on a contingent fee basis, meaning that you are not responsible for legal fees unless we are able to help you obtain benefits.

I had the pleasure of working with Burke, Harvey & Frankowski, specifically Mr. Peter Burke, in 2010 and 2011. I had filed a lawsuit against Unum Life Insurance Company of America for denying my claim for Long Term Disability benefits. I had been told Burke Harvey had extensive experience with dealing with the legal staff at Unum.
Although fighting a huge corporation such as Unum Life Insurance can never be considered pleasurable, Mr. Burke consistently kept me advised of the status of my claim and diligently worked with Unum’s legal staff to settle on what was a reasonable settlement. The firm is extremely well informed, their communication could not be better, and the personnel are extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Should the need ever arise, I would not hesitate to contact Mr. Burke to represent me.
