California Long-Term Disability Claims Process Attorney

If you have been out of work for an extended period because of injury or illness, the bills are piling up and your future employment is unclear. Once you have exhausted any short-term disability benefits and other paid leave, your long-term disability insurance policy should kick in.

Unfortunately, qualifying for disability pay is neither seamless nor automatic. There are numerous hoops to jump through, and the insurance companies look for any reason to deny coverage. If your claim has been rejected, the next step could be critical to the process of obtaining disability benefits.

Your Claim for Long-Term Disability

Attorney P. Randall Noah will guide you through every stage of the process, which includes:

  1. Applying to your disability insurance provider. Most likely, you have already submitted a claim and been rejected. (If not, we can advise on how to improve your chances of approval.)
  2. Appealing a rejected claim to your insurance carrier for reconsideration. If you have long-term disability coverage through an employer, there are specific administrative procedures under federal ERISA law, and typically 180 days to appeal the denied claim. It is best to hire an attorney at this stage — one with focused knowledge in long-term disability law. Randy Noah has practiced insurance, injury and disability law for more than 25 years. He knows how to resubmit the claim to (a) improve your chances of approval and (b) shape the next appeal in case the insurer denies the claim again.
  3. Filing a lawsuit, when necessary. If you have private disability insurance, your case is heard in state court. Mr. Noah represents clients in state claims in the state courts of California and Michigan. If you have employer-sponsored insurance, your case must be brought in federal court.

The Law Office of P. Randall Noah has a record of successful representation in all phases and all venues of the disability claims process. Our goal is to simplify the process and secure your rightful benefits as efficiently as possible.
