Denied Or Delayed Short-Term Disability Claims
Many employers in Florida offer short-term disability insurance coverage as part of a benefit package to its employees. If you are a worker who is temporarily unable to work because of a nonwork-related injury or illness, you are entitled to pursue a claim for short-term disability.
Benefits are typically a portion of your salary during the period you are recovering. However, not all disability claims are approved; these types of claims get denied every single day by insurance entities for a variety of unsubstantiated reasons.
A Legal Team That Knows The Law
With offices in Hollywood and Coral Gables, at Gallup Auerbach, we have extensive experience helping individuals throughout South Florida with delayed or denied short-term insurance disability claims.
Employer-sponsored disability claims are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, commonly known as ERISA. There are very specific rules and regulations under ERISA – one of which mandates insurance companies explain in detail the reasons for denying your claim.
