Reviews From Illinois Clients

Choosing a disability law firm to represent you in the application, appeals, or lawsuit stages is no easy task. You want to look for a law office with legal experts who have extensive experience in dealing with initial disability claims, appeals processes, and litigation, and have handled thousands of claims. It’s vital that your chosen disability lawyers of Illinois have extensive legal resources, a well-earned reputation, and a high client satisfaction rate. Be sure to browse some of the client recommendations to make the best decisions:

Jill F. from Chicago

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Rachel Alters and Liz M. for all their hard work with the lawsuit against Cigna. I never could have made it all happen without you and your associates. If I ever had any questions, they were promptly addressed, email were answered within 24 hrs., and I was never left in the dark about what was happening with my case. I argued with the insurance company about what was owed to me for years and was always rejected. Rachel and her team took on my case and were able to secure monies for my past, present and future. I received more money than I thought was possible and it was all done quickly. My case was not a large case but Rachel still wanted to help. You don’t find many attorneys with a heart.

I highly recommend Rachel Alters and her team at Dell Disability Lawyers. They are caring and very experienced. They are located in Florida and I was in Arizona and Illinois at the time I was their client and they were still able to help me with my case and get it settled. Distance was never an issue.

Chad B. from Springfield

I originally spoke with 3 other long term disability lawyers about my case before contacting Dell Disability Lawyers. None of those law firms would take it. They said the chances of me winning was not good. After finding Dell Disability Lawyers online I spoke with one of the attorneys that has since left. He did take my case but later it was picked up by Rachel Alters. Rachel is amazing and a very intelligent attorney. She not only won my case but also was able to get my back pay for 6 months.

I also cannot say enough about Sonia Nogueira. Sonia was always quick to answer any of my questions. I would usually hear back from her within hours of sending her a email. I do not know where I would be if I hadn’t contacted them. My family and I cannot thank them enough. Don’t let an insurance company tell you they are not responsible for paying you. I paid them for 20 years monthly and they looked for any reason they could not to have to pay me when I needed my benefit. Thank you Rachel and Sonia for all you guys do.

I believe Dell Disability Lawyers are the top LTD lawyers in the nation.

Lynn W. from Quad Cities

Cesar and his team were great to work with. They took the hassle out of applying for my disability claim which was awarded in full. They helped coordinate getting all the information they needed back and forth between my doctors and employer and insurance company. Always available via email or phone.

Angela G. from Chicago

Working with Cesar and Michal at Dell Disability Lawyers was a great pleasure. It was a rather “long distance” relationship (Illinois to Florida), but that did not matter. I do not have internet at home, but can get access at another location, and they were willing to work around my limited internet access and my schedule. They would send documents by email that needed signatures, and would call me directly if something was needed urgently. They were available for questions, usually the same day, but always within 24 hours.

Cesar was very upfront from the beginning about what he needed from me as well as what the possible outcomes could be, good or bad. I’m am happy to say my case was successful!! Though I am happy the case is resolved, I will miss working with Cesar and Michal, they are very nice and very concerned people, and they want the best for their client. Thank you so much for everything!

The Dell Disability Lawyers firm was recommended to me by my SSD law firm when my LTD insurance denied my appeal. Like my SSD law firm, Dell Disability Lawyers specialize in LTD claims. Because that is all they do, and they have been in business for a long time, they must be good at it. And, I am satisfied with the outcome of my case… we won! Yeah!

I have always been told, at least on employee performance reviews, that there is always something about one’s performance that can be improved. Darned if I can find anything that I would say needs to be improved about the experience or the efforts made to resolve my case.

Josh G. from Bloomington

They have always been very helpful and professional. I would recommend them to anyone seeking private disability claims.

Chris K. from Chicagoland

I couldn’t be happier with my experience. Jay is a true professional and knows how to handle complex disability claims. The service and attention to detail provided by my team allowed me to feel confident that we would successfully appeal my claim. And we did, gaining a reversal of my denial on second appeal. Ongoing claim management is also critical and Sonia has been excellent.

Top 5 Disability Insurance Cases Resolved by Dell Disability Lawyers in Illinois

After Principal Denies Continued Disability Benefits, Attorney Alexander Palamara Gets Claim Reinstated for a Vienna Beef Employee — A Vienna Beef employee who worked as a Customer Service Representative was diagnosed with several medical conditions, impairing her ability to work. Her employer had a disability insurance coverage with Principal, and after leaving work in January of 2018, she started receiving Short Term Disability (STD) and later Long Term Disability (LTD) benefits. However, due to a change in the definition of disability in her LTD policy after 24 months, the client was denied benefits beyond May 2020. Principal reasoned that she was capable of performing her old job or other occupations. The client approached Dell Disability Lawyers and Attorney Alexander Palamara filed an appeal against the unjust denial of benefits. The appeal highlighted the inadequacy of the independent physician’s review relied on by Principal, lack of support for Principal’s decision, and objective evidence supporting the client’s inability to work. Subsequently in early 2021, Principal reversed its decision and resumed the client’s benefits.

Dell Disability Lawyers file Lawsuit in Federal Court against Aetna after it denied long-term disability benefits to former software Developer — A former software developer known as Charles was denied long-term disability benefits by Aetna Life Insurance Company. Charles had experienced a cerebral vascular attack in 2011 and began suffering from migraines and memory problems in 2014, which rendered him incapable of fulfilling his job duties. After medical tests and advised by his doctors, Charles filed a disability claim which was initially accepted by Aetna. However, less than two years later, a brief independent medical examination led Aetna to determine he was not disabled from his occupation as a software developer, prompting Aetna to terminate Charles’ benefits. Charles then hired Attorney Cesar Gavidia who filed a federal lawsuit against Aetna in Florida, accusing them of arbitrary termination of Charles’ long-term disability claim. After enduring mandatory mediation, a confidential settlement was reached.

Hartford overturned its previous denial of LTD benefits for Illinois Account Representative — Mr. K, an Account Representative from Illinois, had to stop working due to severe health conditions, namely chronic congestive heart failure and arteriosclerotic heart disease. Subsequently, he claimed for disability benefits under his employer’s short-term and long-term disability policies, administered by Hartford. The insurance company initially denied his long-term disability (LTD) claim, asserting that Mr. K did not meet their definition of disability. Mr. K then sought help from Dell Disability Lawyers and Attorney Jay Symonds who identified flaws in Hartford’s denial letter. An appeal was submitted, highlighting the lack of properly qualified medical review of Mr. K’s complex cardiac condition by Hartford, and their subsequent negligence in understanding the nature of his job duties and their demands. After reviewing the appeal, medical records, and expert testimonies, Hartford overturned its initial decision, paying full LTD back benefits and reinstating Mr. K’s LTD claim.

General Surgeon wins Long Term Disability Insurance Trial Against Unum — A general surgeon suffering from chronic back pain won a long-term disability lawsuit against insurance company UNUM, after denying his benefits since 2004. The United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois ruled in favor of the surgeon, awarding him $402,268. Furthermore, the disability policy will provide over $3.9 million throughout his lifespan. Initially managing his claim independently for several years, the surgeon engaged Dell Disability Lawyers in 2007. Despite having only three medical visits in five years, the plaintiff’s case proved his condition hindered his surgical duties, though he could maintain his role as a medical doctor. UNUM’s pre-trial monetary offer was dismissed and the surgeon’s trial team, composed of Gregory Dell, Gregory Denes, and Cesar Gavidia, successfully secured a favorable jury verdict. Dell Disability Lawyers received their contingency fee of $154,000 and recovered the $28,000 litigation expenses.

5 Ways We Help Get Your Benefits Paid

Get Your Disability Application Approved

Our goal is to get your application for disability income benefits approved. Applying for disability benefits can be a difficult process and the information you provide is critical. Most disability insurance companies look at your application in hopes of finding a reason to deny your claim. Your disability company will ask you to complete numerous forms, interview you, request lots of information, speak with your doctors and possibly request to have you examined by their "hired gun" doctor.

Through our experience of having helped thousands of disability insurance claimants, our lawyers will guide you through the entire application process and give you the best chance to get your disability claim approved the first time.

Submit A Strong Appeal Package

If your disability insurance benefits have been wrongfully denied, then our lawyers know exactly what it takes to get your disability claim approved. You only get once chance to submit an Appeal, therefore every piece of evidence that will support your disability claim must be included. The goal is to win your disability benefits at the Appeal level, but while preparing your Appeal you must consider how a federal judge will review your disability claim if your benefit denial is upheld.

Preparing a strong disability appeal package is an art that requires you to understand how the courts interpret your disability policy language, ERISA regulations / laws, and how to strategically present evidence in support of your definition of "disability". We encourage you to contact any of our lawyers for a free immediate review of your disability denial.

Sue Your Disability Company

98% of the disability insurance lawsuits filed by our law firm have resulted in either the payment of benefits or a lump-sum settlement agreement. Our disability lawyers have filed ERISA governed and private policy long term disability insurance lawsuits against every major disability insurance company in state and federal courts nationwide and we love fighting for the "little guy" against the multi-billion dollar insurance company giants.

We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients and we would like the opportunity to provide you with a free review of your disability benefit denial. There are many complex factors in a disability benefit lawsuit and the legal battle to win long term disability benefits can be fierce.

Prevent A Disability Benefit Denial

Approval of long-term disability is a continuous process as every disability insurance company will evaluate your eligibility for benefits on a monthly basis. You can never let your guard down and assume that your disability company will continue to pay your benefits for as long as you think you need them.

Our law firm offers a reasonable flat fee monthly claim handling service in which we handle every aspect of your long-term disability claim and do whatever it takes to make sure you are paid every month.

Negotiate a Lump-Sum Settlement

Let's discuss if a lump-sum settlement or buyout of your disability insurance claim is both available and makes financial sense for you. Our lawyers have negotiated more than five-hundred million dollars in disability insurance buyouts and we know how to get you a maximum settlement. A disability insurance company is not required to offer a buyout and not every disability company offers them.
