The Insurance Company Failed You When You Needed Them Most. We Can Make Things Right.

You offer time and money to an employer or insurance company in the agreement that they will support you if you suffer from injury or disability. It is a betrayal when an insurer denies or delays your rightful claim for disability benefits. At Nolan, Thompson, Leighton & Tataryn, PLC, we are passionate advocates for our clients who are often left without income or resources while dealing with medical issues. We fight to help people like you obtain the disability or health care benefits they deserve.

Leading Twin Cities Long-Term Disability Insurance Claim Attorneys

Long-Term Disability Insurance Claims Are Not Just A Part Of What We Do – They Are Our Focus

Not only is the long-term disability claim process difficult, but the area of law surrounding it is also complex. ERISA – the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, is the law that governs these claims. This law protects retirement benefit, health care benefit, and welfare benefit policyholders and their beneficiaries. Not just any attorney can or should handle a long-term disability claim that falls under ERISA due to its complexity.

Our disability benefits attorneys draw from a wealth of knowledge to aggressively advocate for the injured and disabled in Minnesota and surrounding states. We are highly experienced in these types of claims and familiar with the tactics that insurance companies use to deny and delay claims. We often leverage this experience to successfully settle cases, saving our clients’ time and cost.
