MetLife Disability Denials
MetLife is one of the largest and most recognizable insurance companies in the world. Their logo is plastered on some of the most iconic buildings in New York City, and the billion dollar Giants and Jets football stadium was recently named after the company. In the insurance business this company is an absolute monster with over 90 million customers in 60 different countries, and a large presence in the state of Maryland. It also employs close to 70 thousand people, and has yearly revenues that top 50 billion dollars. The name is short for Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, but it offers virtually every type of insurance including disability insurance and long term disability insurance. If you have a disability insurance policy, and you have received a denial letter, do not wait to contact an attorney. The Maryland disability lawyers at The Herbst Firm handle MetLife disability insurance denials, and are standing by to offer a free consultation regardless of whether you have a group disability plan under ERISA or a privately purchased disability plan.
As one of the largest and most profitable disability insurance companies, MetLife sends out thousands of disability denial letters each year. It may be an enormously large and powerful insurance company, but you can still fight to force payment of the disability benefits that you deserve. With the help of an aggressive lawyer you cannot only fight, but you can win. MetLife denies disability claims or stops payment on disability insurance claims for a variety of reasons. Many times the company will send out a standard denial letter without diligently looking into your claim, and these decisions rarely relies on actual in person medical examinations to reach their decision to deny a claim. This is unacceptable! Do not let your insurance company avoid paying out a disability insurance policy that was either provided by your employer or purchased with your hard earned money. If your disability policy is governed by ERISA, you will have the right to appeal within 6 months of receiving the disability denial letter. Our disability lawyers will prepare a thorough appeal to assure your best possible chances for restoring payment of your disability benefits. If your appeal is denied, our disability attorneys will not hesitate to file a lawsuit in Maryland court.
The Herbst Firm take a great deal of pride in assisting each of their clients, and will treat your claim with the personal service and attention that you deserve. If you have a question about your claim against MetLife, our lawyers are available 24 hours a day. When you call The Herbst Firm, you will speak to an actual disability lawyer. Large insurance companies have a tendency to treat their customers as just another paycheck. They will take your money without hesitation, but when it comes time to pay a customer on a legitimate disability claim they begin to hesitate. You have a right to fight back, and a Maryland disability lawyer will join you in this fight. We strive to achieve the best possible results for our clients as well as to keep them informed each step of the way. Feel free to contact us anytime at (410) 207-2598.
