Working with a Long-Term Disability Lawyer in Michigan
You just wish you could be done with this mess.
You worked hard every day. Now, you have a health problem that prevents you from working, and even though you or your employer paid for long-term disability (LTD) coverage, the insurance company is rejecting your benefits claim.
You’re angry. It feels like a betrayal.
Your medical condition isn’t your fault, but it forces you from work, leaving you unable to keep up with your bills. This is where LTD insurance is supposed to help. These benefits preserve your financial stability when holding a job is impossible.
At Levine Benjamin, we know how to take on LTD insurance companies. Our law firm has been helping people with health problems and financial worries in Detroit, Toledo, Flint, Lansing, Grand Rapids and all across Michigan since 1964.

How We Can Help You with LTD in MI
Maybe you got your disability claim rejected. Or maybe you had disability benefits for a while, but the insurance company terminated your benefits unfairly.
Either way, we’ll be on your side. What we can do for you:
- Help you gather the correct evidence.
- Examine your policy—including the fine print
- Fight the insurance company
- Get your claim paid faster in some cases
Don’t trust anything the insurance company tells you. Remember, no matter how nice they sound on the phone, you are not their priority. Their main focus is paying you as little as possible, if at all.
So don’t take a quick settlement or sign any documents. That’s what they want you to do.
First, you need to call a lawyer.
Our experienced attorneys can assist you no matter the type of policy you have—an individual long-term plan or one governed by the ERISA law.
We know this can be a confusing and stressful time. We can answer your questions and guide you through what this complex, long process.
We’ll evaluate your case for free.
Don’t Take a Chance on Your Future
Technically, you can represent yourself in this process. But long-term disability is a complicated area of law.
There are dozens of forms to fill out. There are multiple deadlines (sometimes as little as 60 days) for you file an appeal of a denial, depending on your policy. Sometimes, your insurer can suddenly change the burden of proof and cut off your benefits thanks to a small clause in your policy.
We think you’ll be better off working with a professional who knows this field.
That way, you don’t have to go through it alone.
At Levine Benjamin, we don’t work for the big companies. We’re proud to help our neighbors in need. And we know the tricks companies and insurers use to save themselves from paying you what you deserve.
We’re not afraid to get tough with your insurer. Call us today to start your case. And remember: you don’t pay an attorney’s fee unless you win compensation.
