Not necessarily. Most disability insurance claims are settled without going to trial. Nonetheless, our firm handles each disability insurance claim as if the case were going to trial. Depending on your disability insurance policy or plan, if litigation is necessary, your claim will be processed in either state or federal court.
The Law Firm of J.P. Gonzalez-Sirgo, P.A. represents individuals that have had their valid long term disability benefits denied, delayed or terminated irrespective of whether the policy was purchased individually or issued through an employer group policy. The firm is available to assist individuals with the initial application process, during the administrative appeals process, handling denials of claims or termination of benefits, litigation in state or federal court, and negotiating a one-time lump sum settlement or buy-out. Please contact our office to discuss your case in more detail.
