Denied Or Terminated Benefits? We Will Fight The Insurance Companies.

At Frankel & Newfield, P.C., we litigate private and ERISA long-term disability (LTD) insurance cases. Where appropriate and necessary, the firm initiates lawsuits on behalf of aggrieved policyholders and beneficiaries throughout the country to recover their denied or terminated benefits.

Our lawyers aggressively pursue all available claims and remedies, and relentlessly attack all avenues of discovery in litigation. Our reputation among the insurance community as aggressive litigators is a benefit to our clients, as the insurers often seek early and favorable resolutions.

We are proud of the level of personal attention and dedication we give our clients. Our team is there for clients throughout the process — from beginning to end and throughout claims management issues. We will continue to fight back against insurance companies on behalf of our clients. For more information on our successful litigation practice, you can read some of our success stories.

Decades Of Experience In ERISA And Private/Individual Policy Litigation

Litigation in disability insurance claims falls into two areas. In ERISA long-term disability claims, litigation is pursued only after all negotiations and administrative appeals have failed. The cases are heard in federal court. Litigation concerning private or individual long-term disability policies is governed by state law and our attorneys represent clients in state courthouses across the country.

A Team Approach: Co-Counsel Opportunities

We work with other attorneys when they need the help of experienced and knowledgeable disability insurance lawyers for their short-term or long-term disability insurance claims.

Disability insurance law is a highly complex area of the law that requires a specific body of knowledge about disability insurance, insurance law, contracts, ERISA regulations and federal law. Attorneys reach out to us when their clients have a disability insurance problem because they understand that this area of the law is very complex and requires particular knowledge. We are able to represent clients in all 50 states.
