Since 1979, our disability law firm has represented disability claimants against every major disability insurance company.

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 Nebraska and if we are not able to assist you with your disability claim, then we may be able to recommend a Nebraska disability lawyer. If you have a disability insurance claim in either Nebraska or any other state, contact our disability insurance attorneys for a free consultation.

Nebraska residents that have had their disability insurance benefits denied can file a lawsuit in the District Court and County under a limited set of circumstances. Nebraska’s state appellate courts includes the Court of Appeals and the Nebraska Supreme Court. If the disability claimant resides in Nebraska 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 Nebraska 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. Nebraska 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 Nebraska Department of Insurance there are more than 1,500 insurance companies that sell insurance products in Nebraska.

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 Nebraska 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 Nebraska?

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 Nebraska disability insurance attorney can usually file a lawsuit in any federal court in any state.

Questions About Hiring Us

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.

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.

Dell & Schaefer Client Reviews   *****

John S.

Integrity and honesty is an important attribute to me. My Dell & Schaefer (D&S) attorneys meet and share these attributes. D&S have an entire staff dedicated to serving their clients. They’re all very approachable and friendly while keeping the client’s best interests at the forefront. You can contact or call them at the drop of a hat and they’ll assist you. You’re not treated like a number; you’re a respected individual and friend. They care. That’s how they make me feel. They often ask how I’m doing; how I’m feeling (I’m in a lot of pain). Most of all, under their protective umbrella, you don’t have to deal with the insurance company. D&S does all that. They keep things straight. It’s comforting. I would not hesitate to recommend them first and foremost for any disability legal needs.

I’m a retired Army Soldier. I’ve been disabled for about four and a half years. I was working for a company (post-military retirement) when I became disabled after an unsuccessful service connected C-spinal surgery that caused me serious complications. My disability is permanent. I had disability insurance with the company that I worked for as an added benefit. After I went down, and once I met the 6 month period for long term disability, the Hartford insurance company began paying monthly disability payments; however, they were always requesting additional information. It was always repetitive information, non-stop, i.e., asking for the same information I had provided only a few months prior.

They wanted repetitive doctors’ statements. I saw many doctors in my state in an attempt to fix or reverse what was damaged during my surgery in an attempt to return to work. My doctors all said the same thing. My medical condition was permanent. They all said I would not improve or get any better through more surgery or physical therapy. In fact, it might have gotten worse if I tried more surgery. There was nothing the neurosurgeons could do for me other than pain management, and continued PT for pain management to improve my quality of life. My disability insurance company continued to hound me for additional information despite what the doctors had already provided to them. It was ridiculous and it was obvious that the insurance company was trying to find anything to negate the policy.

About 18 months ago the Hartford insurance company requested an “in-home” interview with me. Despite the fact that my medical documentation was excellent and well documented regarding my disability, I had grown tired of dealing with this company on my own. It had become stressful to the point that my health was suffering even more. I had no idea how to handle this powerful company at the pending interview and I felt I needed legal representation to get them off my back protect my rights during the interview. That’s when I decided to enlist the help of Gregory Dell. I found him on the internet, watched several of his You-tube videos, and I was convinced that he was the legal representation I needed to guide me and protect me from this insurance company and my right to disability benefits.

From the moment I contacted Gregory Dell and his attorney associate Alex Palamara, the lead attorney who handles my case, I was treated with respect and dignity. With little notice, both of these attorney’s guided me through a successful interview with the insurance company. They were present (via telecom) during the entire interview, which took about two hours. They had told me to be myself and to be totally honest with the investigator during the interview. That I was, but when I was offering too much information to the investigator, they would tell me when to stop. They’re experts in disability legal matters. I’m not and I listened carefully to their advice and direction. I’m glad I did.
