Portland Long Term Disability Attorneys

Need LTD Benefits? Give Us a Call

Learning that an insurance company has denied your long term disability (LTD) benefits can be even more frustrating than the injury or illness that stopped you from working in the first place. Rather than getting upset, though, get things under control with the help of Kantor & Kantor, LLP. Our team of long term disability insurance attorneys in Portland are standing by to help you with a denied claim. We are entirely focused on LTD benefit claim denials, making us one of the most reliable LTD claim law firms in the region.

You can get more information about your legal rights and options after an LTD denial by dialing (877) 783-8686 now.

Oregon ERISA Laws & Disability Claims

The Employee Income Retirement Security Act (ERISA) is the governing act for the vast majority of long term disability claims. It was written specifically to protect employee rights to disability pay when they cannot work due to an injury or illness. To this end, it applies primarily to health insurance and disability pay programs provided by employers to eligible employees.

ERISA is a federal act, so it is the same in all 50 states. It is also more complicated than many state-level disability laws. You should only work with an LTD claim attorney who is familiar with ERISA law, like the lawyers you can find here at Kantor & Kantor.

Let our attorneys represent you and help with:

  • Meeting all claim deadlines and statutes of limitations
  • Reviewing your disability or healthcare policy for coverage and benefits options
  • Compiling your response to the claim denial

Double-Checking the Denial Letter & Responding

The first thing you should do after receiving a denial letter from a disability insurance provider is to double-check what you read. There is often intentionally confusing language in denial letters to try to dissuade you from challenging the denial. You will want to spot any language that clearly explains why your claim was denied.

If you do not see any language that mentions why your claim was denied, then that is a serious issue that should be brought to the attention of an attorney. If you do not understand the provided explanation or think it is inaccurate, then you should always call a lawyer for a second review of the denial letter.

The next thing to do is start getting copies of any documents that could be relevant to your claim. Medical records, notes from your employer describing your expected work duties, and more can all be incredibly useful. To more effectively challenge the denial, you will want to move quickly. You might only have 30 days to challenge the denial, so starting your case sooner than later could be a necessity.

Effective Representation When It Matters the Most

Long term disability insurance benefits can provide you with the financial support you need while you are unable to work. Not having that support because an insurance company doesn’t want to take your case seriously can be a disaster for your finances and your overall wellbeing. Give yourself a fighting chance after an insurer denies your claim and makes your future stability uncertain. Call (877) 783-8686 and connect with our Portland long term disability lawyers today.

Client Testimonials

  • Your kindness will never be forgotten.

    “Dear Glenn, Several weeks ago, you graciously met with my husband and me and provided us with invaluable advice vis a vis his application for Long Term Disability and the Voluntary Transition Plan offered by his employer. Your calming presence and thoughtful guidance was so gratefully appreciated and we both felt much lighter as we left your office. We are pleased to advise you that David's application for LTD was approved the day after we met with you (sigh of relief)! Had it not been, we knew when were we would go for representation. We both want to thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity of spirit. Your kindness will never be forgotten. With Warmest Regards, Lori and David C.”

  • Truly outstanding in every way!

    “Both Glenn Kantor and his associate attorney Brent Brehm are truly experts in the field of disability law. They handled a complex individual disability policy issue for me. Their knowledge of the law, coupled with their experience, resources, and tactical skills, helped me obtain results that exceeded my expectations. Truly outstanding in every way!”

  • Your compassion for me and my situation is very much appreciated.

    “My thanks to you for pursuing my case with vigor. I don't know much about how these legal things are handled, but I could tell by your communications with me, making sure I was always informed, that you were on top of it all. Also, you were ALWAYS available to me to answer questions, and your compassion for me and my situation is very much appreciated. I have had limited exposure to the legal system and attorneys, but I have never been able to just call and talk to them, as I could with you. I always had to speak with someone in the office that couldn't really answer my questions.”

  • There are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us.

    “I wanted to thank you again for all of your help. My daughter would not be in treatment without your help. I can never thank you enough, there are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us, and I believe saved my little girl. Taking her back to Timberline Knolls was very difficult in many ways, I wish UBH could know the damage they have done to her by having her go in and out like this. When she went into Timberline Knolls the first time she was not happy to go exactly, no one wants to go into treatment, but she was open to going in and ready, for the first time, to really look at her issues and work hard to get better. When she had to leave Timberline she expressed that she wished she could have stayed because she felt like she was finally at a place where she was getting better and, though it was hard, she was really opening up and dealing with her issues for the first time, something she has had a hard time doing. I just wanted you to know that she was going down to a really bad place and without you I don't know what would have happened except that she would not be at Timberline Knolls right now getting better and I thought you should know this. With unending gratitude.”

  • I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me.

    “I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me. Hopefully I will not ever have the need to refer someone to you because that would mean they would be in a similar situation as myself. But, if that were to ever happen, I would absolutely refer them to your company.”
