Hawaii Disability Insurance Attorneys

Our Hawaii Disability Attorneys assist disability insurance claimants during all stages of a claim for disability insurance benefits. Since 1979, our disability law firm has represented disability claimants against every major disability insurance company. We have earned our reputation in both Hawaii and Nationwide as aggressive, competent, and reliable disability insurance lawyers.

It is essential to hire a disability insurance law firm that has the resources, co-counsel network and experience to effectively represent disability insurance claimants against these nationwide disability insurance companies. We have relationships with lawyers throughout Hawaii and if we are not able to assist you with your disability claim, then we may be able to recommend a Hawaii disability lawyer. If you have a disability insurance claim in either Hawaii or any other state, contact our disability insurance attorneys for a free consultation.

Hawaii residents that have had their disability insurance benefits denied can file a lawsuit in the Hawaii District Court or Circuit Court under a limited set of circumstances. Hawaii’s state appellate courts include the Intermediate Court of Appeals and the Hawaii Supreme Court. If the disability claimant resides in Hawaii 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 Hawaii 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. Hawaii has one federal district court. An ERISA governed disability claim denial lawsuit can usually be filed in any state that the insurance company conducts business. According to the Hawaii Department of Insurance there are more than 1,200 insurance companies that sell insurance products in Hawaii.

Do I Need To Come To Your Office In Order For Your Firm To Evaluate My Claim?

No. We are certainly available to meet with you at any of our satellite offices located in either Hawaii or another state, however following a review of your disability policy or any other pertinent documents and a free telephone conversation we are usually able to make a determination. It is our job to try to get our clients paid their disability insurance benefits as quick as possible; therefore we prefer to have an initial consultation via telephone.

Do I Have to File My Disability Denial Lawsuit in Hawaii?

In the event of a disability claim denial, our disability attorneys will usually have the option of selecting one of several states to file the disability lawsuit. More than 80% of short term and long term disability insurance policies are governed by a federal law called ERISA, which means that a Hawaii disability insurance attorney can usually file a lawsuit in any federal court in any state.

FAQ

Do you work in my state?

Yes. We are a national disability insurance law firm that is available to represent you regardless of where you live in the United States. 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.

How can I contact you?

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.

We all make, everyone of us, life altering decisions everyday that could and often do, save or change the course of our lives. Something as simple as driving to the market one rainy afternoon for groceries with the children carefully strapped and tucked into their car seats… safety belts secured around each one them and returning them home safely… intact – also very important… choosing the right early education program for one of those youngsters who is struggling to “keep up” in school – or maybe it’s a quality of life choice so very important to you personally like… choosing the surgeon who will repair a delicate to treat and painful spinal disc ailment that has caused you years of terrible suffering.

We regularly make decisions that affect our personal and family lives within the context of the times we are living in when we make them. We place our faith and trust in the professionals we select to advise us on these and other very important matters. These “coaches”, as I will continue to refer to them, are Physicians, Lawyers, CPA’s, Financial Investment Consultants, RealEstate Professionals, Insurance Experts, etcetera. These carefully chosen advisers keep us abreast of new opportunities for healing, financial growth and security while at the same time appraising us of the risks and dangers that occur minute to minute both over and under the world’s constantly changing landscape. When the unpredicted problem arises and a major problem will happen at least once in all of our lives, we might need to turn to the “law” – the law lives and breathes and changes by virtue of human, political and technical progress. Those “Coaches”, I mentioned earlier in this memo, also rely on legal experts to help them and their young as well as you and I who they might advise having been selected by one of “us” as a “coach”. We all in the final analysis, must navigate what is often a cloudy, murky, unsure world as part of survival in and of itself.

My legal “coach”… Cesar Gavidia, who has been helping me find my way in this unsure world, is a lawyer I’m very proud to know. After taking my troubling call about a serious insurance matter, Cesar immediately set about collecting the insurance policy information and after carefully studying the insurance policy language… language with which he was and is very familiar, gave me a “gift” that I cannot repay in kind… the “gift” was faith in the law and more importantly… faith in Cesar Gavidia. If you believe as I do, that a legal “coach” is needed to help flesh out your team of professional advisors… then consider talking to Cesar.

We live in a cynical world and we are all afraid of the “unknown”. Step into the knowledgable, kind, generous, professional world of “law” as practiced by Cesar… he really, really, really saved me. And although there are no absolutes… my insurance problems may need more care… a constant I can rely on and believe in is Cesar Gavidia. He will protect me by judiciously and honestly applying the “law”. As hard as it is to believe in anything we hear or read today… please believe me… because my still unfolding story just happens to be the unvarnished truth… and Cesar will get me through these insurance issues the right way, by employing the “truth” in the law… I just know he will… i just somehow know he will.
