A Claimant’s View of a Prudential Disability Benefit Denial

We always welcome our clients and other disability claimants nationwide to share their experiences regarding the handling of their disability insurance claim.

A client of our law firm that was denied long term disability benefits by Prudential Insurance Company recently posted her thoughts:

Unlucky for me, but lucky in this regard, that I rarely have the strength to even get out of bed, never mind the thought of leaving my house, and I have missed nearly every holiday event in 2 years. I guess insurance companies do not think we are allowed to live at all.

I would GLADLY invite Prudential in to my home to videotape me on a daily basis, to let them see that I can barely get out of bed to make it to the rest room, and to see how much pain I am in 24 hours a day, and how damn mad it makes me that I am so weak that I have to depend on someone to help me, or NOT be able to go see my newborn nephew who lives 15 minutes away, and NOT be able to get to Philadelphia to see specialists because I can barely drive.

I don’t know how the people who make the decisions against your case can live with themselves, or go to sleep with a clear conscience at night. It’s frightening to KNOW people are paid and trained to have no compassion or caring, and I’m too darn sick to be able to fight them.

Thank God for Attorney Dell and his very capable group, Attorney Palamara and his assistant, Kathleen Bordes, and all who have assisted in my ERISA claim. God bless you, every one! I researched ERISA attorneys when I was attempting to handle my case on my own, but far too sick to do so, and thank you for being there for me as the best ERISA claimant attorneys I could find! You are my lifesavers and I appreciate EVERYTHING you have done and continue to do for me!

We have partner lawyers in every state and we have filed lawsuits in most federal courts nationwide. Our disability lawyers represent disability claimants at all stages of a claim for disability insurance benefits. There is nothing that our lawyers have not seen in the disability insurance world.

What are your fees?

Since we represent disability insurance claimants at different stages of a disability insurance claim we offer a variety of different fee options. We understand that claimants living on disability insurance benefits have a limited source of income; therefore we always try to work with the claimant to make our attorney fees as affordable as possible.

The three available fee options are a contingency fee agreement (no attorney fee or cost unless we make a recovery), hourly fee or fixed flat rate.

In every case we provide each client with a written fee agreement detailing the terms and conditions. We always offer a free initial phone consultation and we appreciate the opportunity to work with you in obtaining payment of your disability insurance benefits.

Do I have to come to your office to work with your law firm?

No. For purposes of efficiency and to reduce expenses for our clients we have found that 99% of our clients prefer to communicate via telephone, e-mail, fax, GoToMeeting.com sessions, or Skype. If you prefer an initial in-person meeting please let us know. A disability company will never require you to come to their office and similarly we are set up so that we handle your entire claim without the need for you to come to our office.

When you call us during normal business hours you will immediately speak with a disability attorney. We can be reached at 800-682-8331 or by email. Lawyer and staff must return all client calls same day. Client emails are usually replied to within the same business day and seem to be the preferred and most efficient method of communication for most clients.

Dell & Schaefer Client Reviews   *****

Jamie K.

From the moment I called and spoke with Rachel Alters, I knew I was in the right place. I had called many attorneys prior to calling Dell & Schaefer and got turned down because my case was too difficult to win. Rachel Alters took the time to explain the whole process to me and promised that she’d do her best to win my case. Along to way, she was extremely patient, knowledgeable, and always took the time to answers my questions, putting me at ease. In the end, we won my disability case and I was more than happy with the settlement results. I HIGHLY recommend Rachel Alters to anyone with a short term/long term disability case. The amount of professionalism and care you will receive will make the process that much more smoother. Thank you, Rachel! :)
