Long-term disability (LTD) insurance is a safety net that is supposed to catch you if you can no longer work due to a disabling illness or injury. But when the insurance company rejects your LTD claim, you face potentially catastrophic financial and health outcomes.
The odds are stacked against you if you try to appeal the insurer’s decision on your own. These multibillion-dollar companies employ their own teams of lawyers and medical experts. Fortunately, you don’t have to fight them on your own. For more than 30 years, the Milwaukee employment law office of Alan C. Olson and Associates has proudly stood by disabled workers and successfully fought LTD insurers such as Unum, MetLife, CIGNA, Prudential, the Hartford, Liberty and others in appeals.
One of Wisconsin’s preeminent law firms, it litigates more LTD insurance denials than any other firm in the state.
Attorney Olson has represented clients in employment law cases across Wisconsin’s court systems, as well as before the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court. He’s a Fellow of The Litigation Counsel of America and a former board member of the State Bar of Wisconsin, labor and employment law section.
A valued member of firm founder Olson’s team is Attorney Brianna M. Covington, who has devoted years of her practice to solely representing workers in employment law litigation. She has successfully represented employees before government agencies, courts across the state and before both the United States District Courts of Wisconsin.
Most employer-paid long-term disability policies are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, commonly referred to as ERISA. Large LTD insurers use the complexity of ERISA to try to intimidate claimants and discourage attorneys unfamiliar with the law.
It’s critical to have on your side experienced LTD appeals lawyers who understand the nuances of the law and the paperwork, deadlines and insurers’ tricks that are part of ERISA appeals.
Our attorneys represent clients in ERISA appeals across Wisconsin and anywhere in the nation. Contact us toll-free at 1-888-742-9520 to schedule a consultation.
