Long-Term Disability (LTD) Claims
From our office in Glen Burnie, Md the attorneys at the Law Offices of Steinhardt, Siskind and Associates, LLC represent clients in the Anne Arundel county/Baltimore/Washington, DC/Annapolis region and throughout the State of Maryland with short term and long term disability insurance denials. We represent clients at all stages of their claim, including the disability application process, denial of disability and lawsuits to recover disability benefits. In cases where your benefits have been denied we will file an administrative appeal on your behalf, obtain updated documentation to support your appeal and advocate for your entitlement to benefits with the insurance company.
If your appeal is denied by the insurance company and your administrative remedies have been exhausted, then in most instances, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf in order to seek the benefits that you are entitled to receive under the policy.
In 1974 Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) to protect employees’ benefits. Disability insurance, which can provide benefits if you are injured or sick and unable to work, is a prominent feature of the law.
Unfortunately, insurance companies often wrongfully deny benefits to those who are disabled. ERISA is a very complex area of the law and the advice and counsel of an attorney can be very helpful to an individual who has been denied disability insurance benefits. At the Law Offices of Steinhardt, Siskind and Associates, LLC, led by partner, Keith R. Siskind, who has over 20 years of knowledge, skill and experience handling disability insurance denials, our attorneys have helped clients successfully appeal and litigate their claims when they have been wrongfully denied benefits. Insurance companies will use the complexity of the law to their advantage. Our job is to advocate on behalf of our clients to enforce their contractual rights under the policy and hold the insurance company responsible for paying the benefits that are due."No" is not an acceptable answer
