Has your insurer denied your claim for short-term or long-term disability benefits? It probably won’t surprise you to read that I strongly recommend you get an experienced ERISA disability lawyer to help you with your claim. At the same time, I recognize that the decision to hire an attorney is an important and very personal one.
To find out if my services are right for you, schedule a free consultation today. I serve clients in Portland, Maine, and the neighboring areas of Brunswick, Maine, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Concord, New Hampshire, and Worcester, Massachusetts. Even if you do not work with me, I can refer you to someone else and provide advice for your next steps.
However, if you are even considering hiring a lawyer to help with your ERISA disability claim, I urge you to contact me or another experienced ERISA disability attorney as quickly as you can. The best time to get an attorney in these claims is when your insurance company first denies your claim: not after your appeal has been denied.
Again, whether or not to hire a lawyer is a personal decision, and you don’t have to hire me but please: don’t think you can do the appeal yourself and then just hire an attorney if the insurer denies your appeal. Once an insurance company denies your appeal, the damage to your claim is done and a lawyer will have a very hard time helping you at that point.
While I know hiring an attorney is a personal decision, please consider reaching out before you go forward with your claim. I offer free consultations, so you don't have anything to lose by scheduling an appointment today. I am proud to serve the Portland, Maine community, and the surrounding areas of Brunswick, Maine, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Concord, New Hampshire, and Worcester, Massachusetts.
