Long Term Disability

Insurance Claims

We’re here to fight for you.

If you have been injured and are suffering from a long term disability as a result, the last thing you want to have to worry about is your day-to-day living expenses. Long term disability insurance is meant to protect workers from the financial strain of not being able to work due to a disability. Sometimes the process does not work the way that it should. Claims may be denied or suddenly terminated, leaving the injured victim and their family without sufficient funds to make ends meet.

If your insurance company denied you short or long term disability benefits or has cut off your short term or long term disability benefits without a valid explanation, Grosso Hooper Law can fight for you to get the coverage you need.

Long term disability insurance claims often require a large number of reports, medical exams and other evidence within a certain time frame. This can be a confusing and time-consuming process. At Grosso Hooper Law, our team of highly skilled and professional personal injury lawyers have extensive experience working with long term disability claims and negotiating with insurance companies. We will take away the stress of having to fill out multiple forms and wading through insurance jargon. Your policy may have a rehabilitation provision we can access to get you medical assistance on your road to recovery.

We have been successful in many cases involving insurance companies. If you have had your disability benefits cut off or are in danger of losing them, please contact Grosso Hooper Law for a free initial consultation.

“You thought you had a system in place to help replace your income if you got sick and couldn’t work. What do you do when you and your doctor know you shouldn’t be doing any kind of work but the long term disability insurer still says it will no longer pay your benefits? It’s important to me to help you get your benefits reinstated so you don’t lose all of your livelihood while you try to manage your disability.”

Always in Your Court to Fight for You

Rob Hooper was so good that I would never use any other lawyer ever again. At the initial consultation he made me feel very comfortable and understood – I didn’t feel like I was talking to a lawyer in a suit. I could write you a full page on him, he’s awesome. I’ve actually referred him to a lot of other people too.

Jessica Radersma was my lawyer. She stood by me. Guided me and gave me the knowledge I needed to move forward with my claim. I was so green and had no idea of how to proceed or if I even had a case. Jessica totally supported me and my case with great results. Jess become a friend not just my lawyer. Thanks jess for your guidance , knowledge, confidence and loyalty you displayed. And you helped me to win my case.

Lindsay

Rob, I received the money yesterday for the settlement. I want to thank you for your help in getting it settled. I appreciate it very much. My other lawyer just wanted to drop it cause he said he couldn’t get them to come to a settlement. I am so glad David directed us to you. You have been amazing. Thanks again,

TB

Good afternoon Rob, I just want to say thank you for all your work and time in settling my claim. I know it was very difficult given the circumstances. I am glad it has come to a conclusion. Thanks again,

Josephine

Dear Ms Grosso, Too often in life the only feedback that is given is negative. I wish to change that.  From our first meeting I felt a sense of relief in knowing that I had secured excellent representation.  You were organized, and systematic in your investigation into my injuries.  You provided me with a clear explanation of what I should expect during the process. You and your team at Grosso Hooper Law kept me abreast of all communications from the insurance company.  At each step of the negotiations you made sure to explain my options, and inquire about any developments in the status of my injury.  At the end of the day, you billed fairly and fulfilled all my expectations 100%.   As a lawyer myself, it felt so good to be treated as professionally as I treat my own dear clients.  I have no hesitation in recommending Grosso Hooper Law to my friends, family and acquaintances.  With sincere thanks and gratitude.

Angela

Very professional and personable. Kim impressed me with her knowledge of the law; she was straightforward and very clear. She worked very hard for me and was able to have my case settle. If you want the best then you definitely want to hire Kim. I cannot thank her enough for all she has done for me.

Brenda L.

Rob was extremely helpful and definitely went the extra mile to help me out. Rob and his staff were very compassionate towards my situation and took the load off my shoulders. He helped me get through the whole case – it was my first mediation and with Rob it was really easy. The whole process from beginning to end was very smooth and very stress-free. I’ll definitely be using him again in the future.  Thank you, Rob!
