How can we assist you?
The disability income division of Dell & Schaefer, led by Gregory Michael Dell, focuses exclusively on the representation of disability insurance claimants in both private policy and group disability (ERISA) claims.
As disability claim lawyers, we represent disability claimants at all stages of a claim for disability income benefits, which includes the disability application process, denial of disability benefits, ERISA appeals, lawsuits to recover disability benefits and lump sum policy buyouts for individuals that are currently being paid disability income benefits.
The Disability Insurance Claim
The process of having your long term disability claim approved can be complex, confusing and aggravating. Disability insurance claims are routinely challenged by disability insurance companies. Disability companies evaluate every disability claim with a goal of returning the disability claimant to work as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, we often see that disability companies will engage the services of non-independent physicians to review a disability claim file and render an opinion that a disability claimant is not disabled.
Additionally, the disability insurance company will interview claimants at their homes and then conduct video surveillance to show that the disability claimant is not disabled.
Our disability insurance claim lawyers have handled thousands of claims against every major disability insurance company and we are familiar with all of their claims handling tactics. The disability insurance claims examiners are trained to look for reasons to deny disability claims.
