Support For You at Any Stage in the Disability Process

We believe it is unfair for large insurance companies to take advantage of people who are so disabled that they have lost their ability to earn a living. That’s why we are determined to provide exactly the support you need, no matter where you are in the process.

Ready to file a claim? Call us first. Our aggressive representation before filing a claim increases the likelihood of a smooth claims process, rather than a denial or termination. If you need to file a claim, we encourage you to contact us first.

If your claim has already been filed and you have received a request for more information, Frankel & Newfield can help. A request for more information can be a sign that the insurance company has concerns about your claim, and this is worrisome. We are able to put our extensive experience to work for you—making sure that the right documents are provided to the insurance company, alerting you to what the claims adjuster may be seeking, and ensuring that you do not provide information that the insurance company is not entitled to.

If your claim has been denied, we recommend you speak with Frankel & Newfield without delay. You only have a limited amount of time to file an appeal and if you miss the deadline, you could permanently lose your right to appeal your claim. During your free telephone consultation, we will review your situation and explain your options.

If you were receiving disability benefits and you receive a termination letter, we urge you to call us as soon as possible. There are time limits on when you need to respond, and your right to fight back is limited to that time.

Has your insurance company been purchased by another company? We have worked with many clients who purchased their disability insurance policies from one insurance giant, only to have their insurance policy swallowed up by another insurance company. This poses a special set of challenges, as the new owners start by cleaning house – getting rid of any unprofitable claims they can.

Regardless of your stage in the claim process, Frankel & Newfield has worked with clients who have been in your very own situation. We believe that you deserve to be represented with dignity, respect, and compassion.

We Fight Against Unfair Practices

The unfair practices used by many disability insurance companies may cause you tremendous emotional and financial hardship at a time when you can least afford to face such challenges.

Our lawyers fight aggressively to protect your rights, preserve your benefits, and prosecute bad faith denials and terminations of disability claims.

We represent individuals at all stages of the process:

  • People who are preparing to file a disability claim
  • Individuals whose claims are being processed and need guidance
  • Those whose claims have been wrongly denied or terminated
  • Litigation of improper claim denials or terminations

For additional information about who we represent, the conditions we have represented and about long-term disability insurance companies and other helpful tools, see our resources section.

Our experience in recognizing issues before they become problems can prevent you getting tangled in lengthy and complex disputes with disability insurance companies. Our firm’s knowledge of rapidly changing laws in the field of disability insurance and our efficient approach to resolving disputes is of great value to our clients.
