WA Disability Attorneys
Roy Law is the Northwest’s leading long-term disability insurance law firm helping Oregon, Washington State, Hawaii, Alaska, California, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, and Montana residents appeal long-term disability insurance claim denials. These nine states comprise the federal jurisdiction of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is the law governing most long-term disability insurance disputes on the west coast. Whether you have a private long-term disability insurance policy or an ERISA group plan, Roy Law can help.
Roy Law’s disability attorneys provide free long-term disability insurance claim and appeal evaluations. To start, we usually request a copy of your denial letter and long-term disability insurance policy and review the relevant information. Afterwards, we provide you counsel on the best way to proceed. There is no charge for these services.
When hired, Roy Law’s long-term disability insurance attorneys usually work on a contingency basis, meaning we get paid only if you win. Sometimes our lawyers handle long-term disability insurance disputes for an hourly fee, but that is rare and considered on a case-by-case basis.
When preparing long-term disability insurance appeals, Roy Law’s disability insurance lawyers use their intimate knowledge of the law to craft the most persuasive case possible. Generally, state contract and tort laws govern disputes arising from individually purchased private disability insurance policies, while federal law, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”), governs disputes over group policies obtained through employee benefit plans.
Regardless of which laws govern your dispute, all disability insurance appeals involve an in-depth understanding of the law, your insurance policy, claim file, and the reasons for denial. A winning appeal also requires close coordination with your key medical providers and health care professionals. Crafting a persuasive long-term disability insurance claim or appeal requires a significant amount of time, energy, resources, and know-how.
Roy Law’s long-term disability insurance appeal attorneys have dedicated their practice to fighting disability insurance companies on your behalf. Please give us a call, and we will provide you the best service possible.
I am forever grateful and thank Chris and Danielle for all their help and expertise and fighting my case. I would highly recommend Chris and his staff at Roy Law to represent anyone who is dealing with LTD claims or ERISA matters. They are the best of the best and deserve recognition for the excellent service they provide. I could not have survived without their help. Chris and Danielle and staff are truly a blessing to know and do business with. Thank you!
When I was searching for an attorney to help me with my LTD claim that was denied I searched the net. I filled out a form to be contacted by different LTD attorneys and after hitting send I was contacted by Danielle within about 90 seconds. WOW!
Danielle is one of Chris's assistants. I scheduled an interview with Chris, checked out any reviews I could find and hired the firm. My disability is of an Idiopathic nature which means its very hard to prove. Danielle was relentless in gathering all my info and Chris finalized the appeal with plenty of case study. I was half expecting to get a second denial as was discussed but the denial was overturned and the claim was accepted!
I can without hesitation recommend hiring this law firm. I am so glad I did.
Thank you Chris and Danielle
Chris Roy and his staff are a blessing. They are thorough and competent. Disability law is confusing and he made it easy to understand. The entire time I worked with Chris and his staff, they were professional and sensitive to my situation. I appreciate working with honest, hardworking individuals like Chris. I would recommend him to anyone I know.
I was referred to Roy Law by a paralegal at another firm that didn't handle private long term disability cases. She gave me two different numbers but when I asked her, "Who would you go to if this was your case?" she said Chris Roy. Calling Chris paid off immediately. Call as soon as possible and don't do anything until you get advice. If I hadn't spoken with him then, I could have made a fatal mistake by simply responding to a form mail letter. We did actually win the case against an employer that had managed to set it up very well in their favor. Roy Law was professional, competent and even kind. And when you're disabled 'kind' becomes a pretty important word, and pretty rare in a law office.
My disability payments were wrongfully terminated and I had no idea what I was going to do. Chris was so helpful, kind and patient. He is very knowledgeable about this are of the law—ERISA cases. I am profoundly grateful for all of his work. We won the case and my benefits will be reinstated.
