Disability/Medical Benefits Appeals
The Columbus, Ohio, lawyers at Cloppert, Latanick, Sauter & Washburn are experienced in disability and medical benefit appeals. Just as we do with members of Ohio’s public employee retirement systems, our lawyers assist private sector employees, retirees and their families with claims for disability and medical benefits.
When an employee has a physical or mental disability that prevents him or her from continuing in his or her position of employment, many employers have disability or medical benefits plans that can provide compensation.
These disability or medical benefits can include:
- Short term disability benefits
- Long term disability benefits
- Disability retirement benefits
Unfortunately, the employer or employer’s insurance company may deny benefits for a wide variety of reasons. This can be devastating for an employee who is already dealing with a disability and its resulting personal and financial impact.
Employees who have been denied benefits by their employer or employer’s insurance company may be able to obtain recourse under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). ERISA protects the rights of employees and provides remedies for employees who have wrongfully been denied benefits.
If you have been denied medical or disability benefits and need an experienced Columbus, Ohio, attorney, contact Cloppert, Latanick, Sauter & Washburn today for an initial case consultation. Our attorneys are experienced with navigating disability and medical benefits plans and handling claims for benefits under ERISA.
