We Focus Only on Disability Law and Represent Clients Nationwide

Long term disability benefit insurance policies and short term disability benefit insurance policies are complex contracts with provisions and requirements that are deliberately difficult to understand. At Frankel & Newfield, we know our way around the contracts, the companies, and the laws that govern disability claims. We litigate these cases in courts nationwide.

We Help Clients Throughout the Entire Claims Process

Frankel & Newfield works with claimants before filing long term disability benefit claims, helping with the paperwork that can often be overwhelming, working with primary care and treating physicians, and avoiding the minefields set to trap unsuspecting people.

Disability Settlement Negotiations

Frankel & Newfield represents policyholders in long term disability insurance settlement negotiations. There are many instances when disability policyholders would prefer to receive a disability lump sum payout rather than spend years worrying that their claim is going to be denied or delayed.

Benefits Delayed or at Risk of Review?

Frankel & Newfield represent disability insurance claimants who were first approved and received disability insurance benefit claim checks, and then experienced a significant delay in benefit payments, or learn that the insurance company is reviewing their disability claim and preparing to issue a denial.

Receiving Short Term Benefits Now?

We also work with disability insurance claimants who are receiving short term disability benefit claim checks, which is often the first step in the long term disability insurance claims process.
