Rhode Island Long-Term Disability Lawyers
If you are unable to work due to a disability, your employer's long-term disability (LTD) benefits are supposed to pay you a monthly benefit for as long as your disability continues. However, many insurance companies routinely deny long-term disability claims or stop paying benefits before you have recovered enough to return to work. The financial toll on your family can be overwhelming. Working with a highly skilled long-term disability lawyer can help ensure that your rights are protected.
We are one of the few law firms in Rhode Island that handle long-term disability claims. Claims are often litigated in federal court under ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act), and also in state court. More than 75 percent of our long-term disability insurance cases are referred to us from other law firms. Our lawyers are caring, knowledgeable, and willing to spend time with you to get the best result possible.
People who are disabled and unable to work often find it difficult to pay for a lawyer to represent them in court. For this reason, we are willing to handle long-term disability claims for a very reasonable flat fee up front, combined with a percentage of any compensation we are able to obtain for you. If the insurance company acted in bad faith in denying your LTD claim, we can also pursue damages that include attorney fees.
Your personal well-being is our number one priority. So please do not hesitate to contact a long-term disability attorney at Robinson & Clapham to schedule a free initial consultation.
