Hartford Long Term Disability Benefit Denial Reversed by Minnesota Federal Judge

A long term disability insurance claimant had his benefits denied when a doctor made a mistake in completing an Attending Physician Statement. Following submission of an ERISA appeal Hartford ignored the additional information submitted and once again denied the claim following an Appeal. Following the submission of a Federal lawsuit, the Minnesota Federal Judge ruled that Hartford failed to conduct an appropriate review of the claim and reversed the denial of long term disability benefits.

In this video nationwide disability insurance attorneys Alex Palamara and Gregory Dell discuss how the denial in this case may have been avoided. We discuss the importance of strong medical support and proper medical documentation. We often see that is simple errors on a claim that result in a claim denial. If Hartford has any opportunity to deny a claim you bet that they will take it. Our goal is to work with you to get your LTD benefits paid and keep you on claim.

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.

Dell & Schaefer Client Reviews   *****

Jacqueline R.

Best attorney in the industry! I have worked with Greg Dell for the past 10 years. He and his team have been excellent in every way! I was forced to retire early from dentistry due to arthritis in my hands. I had no idea how manipulative the disability carrier could be, and ultimately decided to have Greg help me with my claim.

He has been diligent in protecting my rights and responds to me immediately when I have a question or concern. I highly recommend him and his company – 5 stars for professionalism, response time, knowledge and commitment to their clients.
