Washington residents that have had their disability insurance benefits denied can file a lawsuit in the District Court or Superior Court under a limited set of circumstances. Washington’s state appellate courts includes the Court of Appeals and the Washington Supreme Court. If the disability claimant resides in Washington and the disability insurance company is located in a different state, and the amount of disability benefits payable is greater than $75,000, then the lawsuit can be filed in Washington Federal District Court. If the disability insurance policy is an employer provided policy governed by ERISA, then the disability claim must be filed in federal court. Washington has two Federal District Courts, which are the Eastern and Western District of Washington Federal Courts. An ERISA governed disability claim denial lawsuit can usually be filed in any state that the insurance company conducts business. According to the Washington Department of Insurance there are more than 1,400 insurance companies that sell insurance products in Washington.

Be sure to browse some of the client recommendations to make the best decisions:

Lesley C. from Seattle

This was a very stressful time in my life. The disability company to whom my employer and I had paid premiums to for 30 years and who had paid me disability benefits for the past 12 years had closed my case and denied my appeal. I wasn’t sure what to do.

Following in depth research, endless phone calls and phone interviews of potential representation, I chose Dell Disability Lawyers to represent me. I am very happy I made that decision.

Rachel and Sonia at Dell Disability Lawyers listened to my concerns and reasons for wanting to appeal my claim. They requested my personal statements and files from the disability company for their review. I felt they always kept me updated as things progressed and requested additional info when necessary.

This is not a quick nor easy ordeal to have to go through. However, having Rachel and Dell Disability Lawyers behind me, I felt I had the best representation possible on my side.

They explained my options clearly and provided honest feedback. They didn’t make promises that sounded too good to be true. Their communication was open, timely and made me confident that I was in good hands.

Alicia G. from Olympia

When I called Dell Disability Lawyers I was at a loss of what to do after receiving notice from Cigna that they were terminating my disability benefits after 8 years of having them with no issues. When Jay Symonds called me back, he was very empathic & took plenty of time to answer all of my questions. Given that I had never gone through this before he even advised me to look into other law firms if it would make me more comfortable. We had a few conversations before I retained them & he was very thorough in explaining everything that I could expect from them as my attorneys as well as what to expect from the appeal process.

Throughout the entire appeal Vanessa or Mr. Symonds always kept me up to date & always made themselves available to talk & answer any questions I had. I am so glad I went with Dell Schaefer versus another firm because I doubt I would have received the same personal attention, & that meant a lot to me under such a stressful situation. Everyone I’ve encountered at Dell & Schaefer has been professional & courteous & I would highly recommend their firm to anyone needing a disability attorney.

They are thorough with their answers to any questions you have. They keep you updated throughout the case. They make themselves available by phone if you have questions & need to talk about your case. They are understanding & empathic so you don’t just feel like another client. They are patient even when you are getting frustrated with the process… it is a stressful thing to go through.

I’m not sure other than possibly send some of the documents as Word documents vs PDF documents because sometimes I couldn’t open the PDF documents. Most of my frustrations (& they were few) came from the stress of the situation. Vanessa was a great communicator both via email & phone. I truly appreciate her always taking the time to answer my questions & look into the ones she didn’t know off hand. She always got back to me with anything she had to look in to.

Kristin Y. from Washington

I reached out to Dell Disability Lawyers online after my disability claim denial. Rachel Alters called me that very day to discuss my case and clearly outlined the process. Rachel proactively scheduled time with me once she decided to take my appeal, to review my contract with Dell Disability Lawyers, address any questions I had about the process or the terms of the contract, as well as provide insight on what to expect once my appeal was filed. Ultimately, Rachel won my appeal against MetLife, which meant that I could focus on getting better! I cannot express how grateful I am to have partnered with Dell Disability Lawyers to successfully win this appeal.

Early in my conversations with Rachel, it was obvious to me that she had solid experience with insurance and disability appeals for executives. Everyone at Dell Disability Lawyers, Rachel and her assistant Kathleen, was very responsive in a timely way to my inquiries. I appreciated that so much, as sometimes working through insurance processes feels like a ‘black hole’! Rachel and Kathleen made sure that I always knew the status of my case. Even if we didn’t win my appeal, I would feel confident that I had partnered with the best firm to represent me. But in my case, we did win the appeal which makes my recovery possible!

I cannot think of anything about my experience with Dell Disability Lawyers that would need improvement. Even though we live in separate states, and 100% of our communication was via phone/email/fax, I never felt remote in the process. Thank you so much for helping me.

William K. from Seattle

Dell Disability Lawyers was very helpful with getting my disability benefits paid. They answered all my questions, they were not pushy. They were always kind, professional and friendly. I would highly recommend their services.

Robin B. from Washington

I could not be happier with the service and dedication I received from Mr. Jessup and his team regarding my Long Term Disability from my employer. If not for Mr. Jessup I would have never had a favorable decision, as I had received two denials before I had contacted Mr. Jessup.

My advice to anyone looking for a lawyer to go to bat for you without backing down and having your best interests a top priority Mr. Jessup is who you need to call.

Jamie K. from Tacoma

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 Disability Lawyers 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!

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

Lincoln Approves Long Term Disability Benefits After Four Year Fight — An emergency medicine doctor has won a four-year legal battle against Lincoln to receive long-term disability benefits. The insurance company initially denied the doctor’s claim due to his high wage and substantial monthly benefits. The doctor had a sleep disorder that affected his performance and led to his termination from the hospital.

He filed a claim with Lincoln a year later. Attorney Stephen Jessup helped the doctor build a strong appeal, focusing on Lincoln’s medical reviews. The appeal showed a clear connection between the doctor’s poor work performance and severe sleep disorder. Despite Lincoln’s attempts to deny the claim, Jessup’s appeal was successful. Lincoln finally approved the doctor’s claim after almost four years.

Attorney Jay Symonds successfully appealed and overturned Lincoln National’s denial of long term disability benefits for a Washington Sales Representative — Attorney Jay Symonds successfully appealed against Lincoln National’s denial of long-term disability benefits for Mr. E, a Washington Sales Representative. Mr. E, suffering from Lumbar Intervertebral Disc (IVD) Syndrome with radiculitis, stopped working in July 2016 and claimed disability benefits under his employer’s STD and LTD policies. Lincoln National initially paid Mr. E for 1 week under the Policy’s “own occupation” definition of disability but then denied further LTD benefits claiming the medical documentation did not support continued total disability. After his initial denial, Mr. E turned to Dell Disability Lawyers and the case was taken up by Symonds. The appeal focused on Lincoln National’s evidential inconsistencies and inadequacies, after which Lincoln reversed its decision, reinstating Mr. E’s long-term disability benefits.

CIGNA overturned previous denial of long term disability benefits for Washington Crime Scene Photographer — Mr. B, a former Crime Scene Photographer with serious medical conditions, had his denial of long term disability benefits overturned by CIGNA. He received benefits for over two years before CIGNA stopped them, claiming he no longer met the disability definition. Attorney Jay Symonds at Dell Disability Lawyers helped Mr. B appeal this decision. The appeal argued that CIGNA incorrectly assessed his physical abilities and wrongly believed he could do his job. It also emphasized that medical information confirmed he couldn’t work any job. After reviewing the appeal and supporting documents, CIGNA reversed its decision, paid back benefits, and reinstated Mr. B’s claim. Attorney Symonds is still supporting Mr. B to prevent future benefit termination.

Aetna reinstates benefits for ex-SAP America employee with head injury — A former SAP America employee had her long-term disability claim denied by Aetna Life Insurance. She suffered from multiple concussions and was unable to continue working due to symptoms like headaches, dizziness, and memory lapses. Aetna initially approved the claim in 2017 but later determined she didn’t meet the definition of disability due to inadequate medical documentation.

The claimant sought legal assistance from Attorney Alexander Palamara at Dell Disability Lawyers. With strong documentation and support from medical records, an appeal was filed and Aetna’s denial was overturned. The claimant is now receiving full monthly benefits again.

Dell Disability Lawyers successfully overturn Sun Life’s denial of long term disability benefits for a client with severe cervical disorders — A procurement agent at FLSmidth, Inc. had health issues and had to quit in 2012. Sun Life initially approved her disability claim. She was also approved for Social Security Disability Benefits in 2013. However, Sun Life stopped the benefits in 2014, saying her medical documentation didn’t justify her disability. She hired Dell Disability Lawyers and they filed an appeal. Sun Life reinstated her claim based on the appeal evidence. The legal battle will continue due to policy specifics. Dell Disability Lawyers will provide legal assistance until the policy expires or she returns to work.

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.
