Birmingham Disability Benefits Attorneys
If you have been denied long-term disability benefits or other types of disability payments in Alabama, the disability law lawyers of McCallum Hoaglund Cook & Irby, LLP, (MHCI) can help. We represent hospital workers, government employees and others who have been wrongfully denied disability benefits.
Long Term Disability Benefits
Many employers offer Long Term Disability (LTD) benefits for their employees. These policies can also be purchased privately by people who are self-employed. An LTD insurance policy is a contract between you and an insurance company. If the insurance company wrongfully denies your disability claim or stops making payments while you are disabled, at MHCI we can sue the insurance company for breach of contract to help you obtain the benefits you deserve.
Damages in a state law disability benefits case may include mental anguish damages, and punitive damages for insurance bad faith in addition to the disability benefits you are entitled to. Our Birmingham disability benefits attorneys also represent clients who have group disability plans covered by ERISA (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act).
Alabama Social Security Disability Attorney
Additionally, we can help you if you are no longer able to work and need to file for Social Security Disability (SSD), or if you have a denied disability claim or need help with the next steps after a denied SSD appeal. Our SSD practice will help you with every step of the process, all the paperwork, and gathering the necessary documentation needed to substantiate your claim.
