Reviewed by Bunny on August 9th 2023   Verified Policyholder
I believe if Sedgwick would have moved on my Claim. They absolutely did everything not to answer my calls, change dates. I had already been through WV comp. Ins. Sold out, so I went to Brick Street, Cambridge, Sedgwick. By the time I went to SSI was in so much pain because of the injuries and nerve damage set in. I was sick and then having my lawyer shut down her practice due to her addiction whatever. The point is they never closed my case only bad thing is this goes back to 03 that's when I filed. I ran Dozers and a hugh rock was planted and I hit that thing it drove me straight to hell. My arms, hands, neck the pain was inhumain...I fought them tooth and nail they put my neck on a claim and then take it off 4 surgeries later still horrible pain went to another Dr. Weiswig bless his heart he was so mad he cussed the nurses or Dr.s in his reports so did Dr. Young cussing them on file. It was obvious to them it was a neck injury that I'm still suffering from because of this and paperwork paperwork. Switching ins. Companies just 4 or 5 times That was why I went to SSI because I finally got the surgery it helped but was to late I have nerve damage. Because of them I had all the nerves in my neck burned because not pain bills. They took my life and shit on it. I worked so hard 3 kids single mother who got that seat. I worked like a dog. I have a son Sargent Johnson retired tours airforce. A son that went to CA in Volkswagen vanagon for 10 yrs. Became a surfer/ NOW Wonderful father of 4. A daughter grad. From Mashall, who just came in first for most sales in her store. They ruined my life, my heart my health my pride, I'm 62 now. This isn't right I pray u can shed some light, it's too dark. I went to a psychiatrist the whole time I was off work. I had a life how can I tell my adult children this is how it all ends they had no right not to help me. Ps. Tell me how is it that my ins. Sedgwick workes for the company and is my ins. Supposedly helping me..NOT,!! Plus Steptoe and Johnson said and told me they were my ins. Company too, liars. He was calling me all the time checking on me. I cried and cried to him I was in so much pain, asking him what do I do next. Because I was in bed in pain and a lot of days I'm still there living in poverty all due to Sedgwick. I have 1 income 900.00 that's it. With 8 grandchildren who I adore, I can't even afford to take them places, where's the justice? I was told all my life if u get hurt on the job workers comp will fix u. All they did was act like I was asking for a handout a freebie No Way that's not who I am. I am a single mother that worked her way to set in that dozer seat. No one knows how much I loved my job the union the company that's why I never cared to work over or go out on the edge for any of them.

5 Ways We Help Get Your Benefits Paid

Get Your Disability Application Approved

Our goal is to get your application for disability income benefits approved. Applying for disability benefits can be a difficult process and the information you provide is critical. Most disability insurance companies look at your application in hopes of finding a reason to deny your claim. Your disability company will ask you to complete numerous forms, interview you, request lots of information, speak with your doctors and possibly request to have you examined by their "hired gun" doctor.

Through our experience of having helped thousands of disability insurance claimants, our lawyers will guide you through the entire application process and give you the best chance to get your disability claim approved the first time.

Submit A Strong Appeal Package

If your disability insurance benefits have been wrongfully denied, then our lawyers know exactly what it takes to get your disability claim approved. You only get once chance to submit an Appeal, therefore every piece of evidence that will support your disability claim must be included. The goal is to win your disability benefits at the Appeal level, but while preparing your Appeal you must consider how a federal judge will review your disability claim if your benefit denial is upheld.

Preparing a strong disability appeal package is an art that requires you to understand how the courts interpret your disability policy language, ERISA regulations / laws, and how to strategically present evidence in support of your definition of "disability". We encourage you to contact any of our lawyers for a free immediate review of your disability denial.

Sue Your Disability Company

98% of the disability insurance lawsuits filed by our law firm have resulted in either the payment of benefits or a lump-sum settlement agreement. Our disability lawyers have filed ERISA governed and private policy long term disability insurance lawsuits against every major disability insurance company in state and federal courts nationwide and we love fighting for the "little guy" against the multi-billion dollar insurance company giants.

We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients and we would like the opportunity to provide you with a free review of your disability benefit denial. There are many complex factors in a disability benefit lawsuit and the legal battle to win long term disability benefits can be fierce.

Prevent A Disability Benefit Denial

Approval of long-term disability is a continuous process as every disability insurance company will evaluate your eligibility for benefits on a monthly basis. You can never let your guard down and assume that your disability company will continue to pay your benefits for as long as you think you need them.

Our law firm offers a reasonable flat fee monthly claim handling service in which we handle every aspect of your long-term disability claim and do whatever it takes to make sure you are paid every month.

Negotiate a Lump-Sum Settlement

Let's discuss if a lump-sum settlement or buyout of your disability insurance claim is both available and makes financial sense for you. Our lawyers have negotiated more than five-hundred million dollars in disability insurance buyouts and we know how to get you a maximum settlement. A disability insurance company is not required to offer a buyout and not every disability company offers them.

Who do you help?

Our lawyers help individuals that have either purchased a long term disability insurance policy from an insurance company or obtained short or long term disability insurance coverage as a benefit from their employer. We have helped individuals in almost every type of occupation with monthly disability benefit payments ranging from $1,500 to $50,000.

Our clients include all types of employees ranging from retail associates, sales representatives, government employees, police officers, teachers, janitors, nurses, pilots, truck drivers, financial advisors, doctors, dentists, veterinarians, lawyers, consultants, IT professionals, engineers, professional athletes, business owners, and high level executives.

A strong understanding and presentation of the duties of your occupation is essential for securing disability insurance benefits.

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 phone, email, fax, GoToMeeting 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 800-698-9159 or by email. Lawyers 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.
