Attorneys Guiding You Through the Process of Obtaining LTD Benefits
A well-known name across the country, MetLife offers a wide range of insurance plans, including long term disability coverage. If you are unable to work due to an injury or disability and carry MetLife long term disability coverage, you may be entitled to financial support. Unfortunately, qualifying for, and actually obtaining, benefits is not the same thing; many individuals who are qualified for benefits are denied on their first attempt at obtaining benefits.
At the law firm of Burke, Harvey & Frankowski, LLC, we understand how important long term disability benefits can be while you are unable to work. We also understand how difficult it can be to obtain your benefits when you are dealing with a challenging and painful physical condition. Fortunately, you do not have to face the claims process alone; our MetLife disability claims attorneys have the skill and experience needed to help you traverse the claims process or appeal a denial of your claim.
Filing Your Initial Claim
Working closely with you, our attorneys will help you gather all necessary documentation needed to file your initial claim, including:
Doctors’ opinions and notes
Once all of the required information and documentation has been gathered and carefully organized, we will help you complete your claim in the manner that provides the best chance of successfully obtaining benefits.
Appealing a Denied Claim
If you have received a denial notice, it is important to understand that you have the right to appeal the decision. Our staff will help you understand the reasoning behind your denial and gather any additional information needed to file your appeal directly to the MetLife claims department.
Should the appeal with MetLife continually be denied, you have the option to file a lawsuit under the ERISA act, which prompts a review of your case by a federal judge who will make a final ruling on your benefits dispute.
Throughout every step in the appeals process, our National LTD benefits attorneys will work with you to continually improve your case and demonstrate your eligibility for benefits.
