Hurricane Sandy Causes Problems for NJ Resident Seeking Prudential Disability Insurance Benefits

Prudential Disability Insurance Company has their national headquarters in New Jersey. There are thousands of disabled individuals that are receiving short term or long term disability benefits from Prudential every month. Unfortunately, many of these claimants have suffered significant losses as result of Hurricane Sandy. Many of these claimants will be unable to treat with their doctors for several weeks or months as a result of damage to their doctor’s office or the inability to get to their doctor’s office. We were recently contacted by a Prudential disability insurance claimant that has had her long term disability benefits denied and she is unable to get any additional medical information to Prudential as a result of damage to her doctor’s office and a lack of transportation.

How To Protect Your Disability Insurance Benefits Following Hurricane Sandy

As disability attorneys that represent disabled individuals throughout the country and a national headquarters in Hollywood, Fl, we have worked with hundreds of clients that have had to experience a natural disaster such as Hurricane Sandy. Disability insurance companies understand the seriousness of a natural disaster, yet they still do not relax their standard disability insurance claim requirement. It is important for anyone receiving disability benefits to reschedule any doctor appointments that were cancelled. If there are claim forms due to a disability company, then you should request at least a 30-45 day extension from your disability company. If you have been displaced from your home then you should advise the disability company of a new address as soon as possible. If your claim was denied prior to Hurricane Sandy, it is essential that you contact the disability company in writing and request at least a 60 day extension.

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, 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.

I would have never received a penny if I did not seek the help of Dell & Schaefer Law Firm. I was not able to get The Hartford Insurance Company to pay me no matter what I did. I had paid into the system which was denying me the benefits when I needed them the most! I was sick, recovering from chemotherapy and was told by my doctors not to return to work until my lab values were within the normal range. Trust me I wanted to get better! Finally, with the consistent help of attorney, Stephen Jessup, we won the case and I received payments.

I am now well and not in need of long term disability. This is a situation where the insurance company denied me until a law firm was there to back me up. When this firm says they will do whatever it takes they mean it. I highly recommend Stephen Jessup. I am thankful for the ability of this legal team to fight for our rights.
