Disability & Benefits Associates of Michigan provides comprehensive services to employees and independent professionals who have been denied rightfully owed benefits or compensation from their employers, benefits plans, insurance carriers and government assistance programs.
Insurance companies, benefits plans, and government programs routinely deny benefits claims when they are needed the most – when you are disabled, injured at work, or out of work for no reason of your own. You are stuck with no income, are being sent confusing forms and demands from the insurer, plan or government and have no idea why your claim was denied. In the meantime your bills are piling up.
It is possible to get the benefits you deserve, often times with payments retroactive to the date of your claim. You or your employers have paid premiums into these insurance funds and there is money designated to pay your claims. The problem, however, is the process to claim your benefits is confusing, time consuming, requires strong advocacy and someone who knows these systems to maximize your benefits. Most people have neither the time nor experience to effectively gain access to their money. Thus, rightfully owed claims go unpaid time after time.
Similarly, employees and independent professionals are often underpaid or outright denied rightfully owed wages, benefits, commissions and bonuses that are owed pursuant to a contract or law. The employer or contractor has received the fruit of your labor only to contrive some reason to deny the compensation after the fact; or they simply refuse to pay. Despite several attempts to remedy this, you are still coming up dry or are getting “promises” to rectify this at some later point of time that never seems to arrive. You have no leverage to force them to make the situation right.
You have a choice – walk away from your rightfully owed benefits and compensation or hire an attorney that specializes in pursuing these denials. Disability & Benefits Associates of Michigan has specialized in pursuing these matters for more than 10 years and we do not rest until our clients are 100% satisfied that their claims have been fully pursued. In many instances we are able to do this without any out of pocket costs to you.
